Gyeonggi & Goyang

 

 


Gyeonggi-do

[Source: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Gyeonggi_Province]

Gyeonggi-do (Hangul: 경기도, Korean pronunciation: [kjʌŋ.ɡi.do]) is the most populous province in South Korea. Its name, Gyeonggi means “the area surrounding the capital”. Thus Gyeonggi-do can be translated as “province surrounding Seoul”. The provincial capital is Suwon.

Seoul—South Korea’s largest city and national capital—is in the heart of the province but has been separately administered as a provincial-level special city since 1946. Incheon—South Korea’s third-largest city—is on the coast of the province and has been similarly administered as a provincial-level metropolitan city since 1981. The three jurisdictions (Seoul, Incheon and Gyeonggi-do) are collectively referred to as ‘Sudogwon’ and cover 11,730 km^2, with a combined population of 25.5 million—amounting to over half of the entire population of South Korea.

 

 


Goyang-si

Goyang (Goyang-si; Korean pronunciation: [ko.jaŋ]) is a city in Gyeonggi Province in the north of South Korea. It is part of the Seoul Capital Area, making Goyang one of Seoul’s satellite cities. It is one of the largest cities in the Seoul Capital Area, with a population of just over 1 million. Ilsan, a planned city, is located in the Ilsandong-gu and Ilsanseo-gu districts of Goyang. It also includes Deogyang-gu which is closer to Seoul.

Kintex is located in the south of Goyang-si near the border with Seoul. Several institutions of higher learning are located in Goyang. These include Agricultural Cooperative College, Korea Aerospace University, and Transnational Law and Business University. In sports, the city is home to the Asia League Ice Hockey team High. The Challengers League football team Goyang Citizen FC and the Korean Basketball League team Goyang Orion Orions are also based in the city.

Seoul (; Korean: [sʰʌ.ul] ( listen)) – officially the Seoul Special City – is the capital and largest metropolis of South Korea, forming the heart of the Seoul Capital Area, which includes the surrounding Incheon metropolis and Gyeonggi province, the world’s second largest metropolitan area with over 25.6 million people. It is home to over half of all South Koreans along with 678,102 international residents.  With a population of over 10 million, the megacity is the second largest city proper in the OECD.

Situated on the Han River, Seoul’s history stretches back more than two thousand years when it was founded in 18 BCE by Baekje, one of the Three Kingdoms of Korea. It continued as the capital of Korea under the Joseon Dynasty. The Seoul Capital Area contains five UNESCO World Heritage Sites: Changdeok Palace, Hwaseong Fortress, Jongmyo Shrine, Namhansanseong and the Royal Tombs of the Joseon Dynasty.   Seoul is surrounded by mountains, the tallest being Mt. Bukhan, the world’s most visited national park per square foot.  Modern landmarks include the iconic N Seoul Tower, the gold-clad 63 Building, the neofuturistic Dongdaemun Design Plaza, Lotte World, the world’s second largest indoor theme park,  Moonlight Rainbow Fountain, the world’s longest bridge fountain and the Sevit Floating Islands. The birthplace of K-pop and the Korean Wave, Seoul received over 10 million international visitors in 2014, making it the world’s 9th most visited city and 4th largest earner in tourism.

Today, Seoul is considered a leading and rising global city, resulting from an economic boom called the Miracle on the Han River which transformed it to the world’s 4th largest metropolitan economy with a GDP of US$846 billion in 2014 after Tokyo, New York City and Los Angeles. In 2015, it was rated Asia’s most livable city with the second highest quality of life globally by Arcadis. A world leading technology hub centered on Gangnam and Digital Media City, the Seoul Capital Area boasts 15 Fortune Global 500 companies such as Samsung, the world’s largest technology company, as well as LG and Hyundai-Kia. In 2013, the city’s GDP per capita (PPP) of $39,448 was comparable to that of France and Finland. Ranked sixth in the Global Power City Index and seventh in the Global Financial Centres Index, the metropolis exerts a major influence in global affairs as one of the five leading hosts of global conferences.

Seoul is the world’s most wired city and ranked first in technology readiness by PwC’s Cities of Opportunity report. Its public transportation infrastructure is the world’s densest and ranked as the best in the Northern Hemisphere by Arcadis.  It is served by the KTX high-speed rail and the Seoul Subway, the world’s largest subway network, providing 4G LTE, WiFi and DMB inside subway cars. Seoul is connected via AREX to Incheon International Airport, rated the world’s best airport nine years in a row (2005–2013) by Airports Council International. Lotte World Tower, a 556m (1,824 ft) supertall skyscraper with 123 floors, is being built in Seoul to become the OECD’s tallest in 2015 with the world’s tallest observation deck and art gallery.  Its Lotte Cinema houses the world’s largest cinema screen.  Seoul’s COEX Mall is the world’s largest underground shopping mall.  Emporis ranked Seoul’s skyline having the world’s fourth highest visual impact among major cities.
