One thing I got to say — the raised pedestrian walkways make life a lot easier. I wish they were building that in Seoul, instead of a silly canal to Busan. (So we wouldn’t have to stand at every corner for five minutes waiting to cross the street.)
Oh, and the VIP seats in the movie theaters? Well, maybe not VIP, but I saw Cloverfield (“Cleverfield,” I appropriately typoed) at the SFX cinema in Central World I think it’s call, and that was SO worth it. Airplane first-class style seats. Blanket because the aircon is so high. Fine time. Wish you could get that in Seoul, too. (Maybe you can, but I’ve never seen it. If you can, please tell me!)
I’m staying near Siam Square, by the way, and it is indeed very nice to be nowhere near Khao San Road. (And my place doesn’t cost that much, either.)
Off to go find something to eat.
