Neon Lights Mix with a Classic

These fabulous neon decorated carriages line the bridges that cross the small river in downtown Seoul. Kwang claims there is no "downtown" in Seoul, but I'm putting a label on this particular area because it's what made me love Seoul so much the first time. Not only are the carriages elaborated decorated with neon lights, but the driver plays a faux horse ney to alert the on coming cars. It's a terrifying sound, but effective. I feel like these carriages should be in a modern art music somewhere. They are gawdy, kitschy, relics of a modern day Seoul.


  1. Are they really attached to horses? I can't tell from your photos.

  2. They are really hitched up to the horses.
