Here is the main tourist attraction of 2010 : The Banpo Brige

Now, you can do that in Seoul!

Banpo Bridge in South Korea became a worldwide tourist attraction after it received a facelift that makes the famous waterfall in New York seem insignificant.

On both sides of the bridge built over the Han River were created holes that are leaking every minute each 190 tons of water.

Above them were installed about 10,000 different colored LEDs, so tourists have the impression that they crosses a wave of color.

The Bridge-fountain, built in1982, entered the Guinness Book of Records as the single longest bridge with a fountain and with the most LEDs in the world.

Banpo is measuring 1140 m long and has become the main tourist attraction in Seoul, which will certainly contribute to its recognition as eco-friendly city.

Whitney Houston failed fighting drugs

The singer was taken to hospital for emergency after she collapsed backstage after a concert in Seoul, South Korea.

According to rumors:”Whitney went backstage and wasn’t feeling good. She supported by a wall and screamed for water. Trying to breathe, she said: On stage, Whitney was clearly exhausted. She tried to attack some high notes, but she was sweat, she breathe hard during the song and just hardly could stood on her feet”.

On the other hand, rumors say that her state was due to a party with cocaine and alcohol and that her attempts to leave the drugs would have failed.

Fortunately, Whitney has put on her feet quickly and now is in Australia to continue the series of worldwide tour concerts. Was it just a false alarm?
