Songdo is a "Smart City" recently built on reclaimed land from the Yellow Sea. It is an international free economic zone and its development has centered around green and sustainable living. It is quite beautiful and seems quite convenient; however, no one is here.
I hesitate to call this experiment in planned city building a failure as more businesses, investments, and universities will be moving here soon. However, right now, being devoid of people, it is strange to see.
Much has been written about Songdo, and my opinions are complicated so I will keep this short and let the photos speak for themselves.
