There is a half-scale replica of the Eiffel Tower straddling the Paris Las Vegas hotel and casino.
.
If the original plans were followed, it would have been a full-scale copy.
.
As it was, it posed a potential obstruction to the city airport and so was reduced to 1:2 scale.

It's a rainbow in Chicago O'Hare airport.
.
I personally love spending time in airports, or specifically, watching people in airports.
.
I feel like they are either about to step into a new story or at the end of one.
.
I see the people milling as a tapestry of unrelated stories woven to cross for a brief moment in this one place at this one time.

Beautiful dancheong on the eaves of the buildings in the Gyeongbokgung Palace in Seoul, Korea.
.
Dancheong, the art of painting colorful patterns on traditional Korean wooden buildings has both a practical and symbolic purpose.
.
It preserves the wood from rot, wind, and rain and is also believed to keep evil spirits at bay.

The site for love locks in Seoul isn't on a bridge but along the fence of the N Seoul Tower.
.
It provides a stunning view of the city while couples declare their love for each other and symbolize their commitment by attaching a lock to the fence and throwing away the key.

"A hundred yellow ribbons `round the ole oak tree", so goes the famous Sinatra song.
.
In Imjingak Village, the ribbons are tied, not to a tree, but to a wire fence.
.
This, the northernmost village in South Korea, is located a mere 7km away from the Military Demarcation Line between the South and the North.
.
Since families cannot cross to either side, they are left with tying ribbons along the fence with messages to lost family members or prayers to their deceased ancestors on the other side.

The National Folk Museum of Korea located within the grounds of the Gyeongbokgung Palace.
.
That's right, what's a Palace complex without its own museum?

Paintings adorn the wooden ceiling of the Gwanghwamun Gate of Gyeongbokgung Palace in Seoul, Korea.
.
This gate has 3 arches. Only the King can enter the center arch, all other officials use those on the sides.

The roofs of the buildings in Gyeongbokgung Palace look like the wings of a great colorful bird.

Gentlemen dressed up in traditional soldier attire perform the Changing of the Guard ceremony in front of the Gyeongbokgung Palace in Seoul, Korea.
.
With their flowing robes and flags, this would have to be the most colorful Changing of the Guard ceremony I have seen.
