Seoul is ASKMEN.com's 6th Best City to Visit

ASKMEN.com, the website equivalent to Maxim magazine, just listed Seoul as the 6th best city in the world to visit. Also: the top city in Asia, beating out Tokyo, Hong Kong, and Shanghai (none of which ranked, and all of which were also beaten by Beijing and Bangkok)

So... eat your heart out, lonely planet. And maybe next time another website says "Seoul Sucks," City friggin' Hall won't feel the need to act as if it's the end of the world.

Seoul's score was 80.2/100, and here were the criteria:


I like Seoul, too.  :)

6.5 for women? Was this reviewer gay? The language barrier is often an issue, but they're smoking hot, dressed sexy, and all around.

Have to agree with you Chris. And not just because my wife tells me I have to agree :)

I'm married to a man and I would still place the women higher (and the weather lower, it may be and 8.5 now but in July?!!)

I thought Askmen.com only posted articles about abs.

It seems abs, tna, and travel is the new holy trifecta of testosterone mags.

frankly, I just find it icky that they're "rating" women at all. Jeez louise.

Rob-o-SE-yo said...

I'm with you, GG. They should at least measure the men, too.

Gomushin Girl said...

Doesn't anybody else find it icky to be "ranking" women? I mean, I expect that from askmen.com, but still . . .

@Gomushin Girl: not until people stop putting stock in rankings. FWIW, men seem just as prone to being ranked by the yeoja - anyone seen the sexiest man alive, or the 100 most eligible bachelors?

Ask.women, a different story.
