Once again, the U.S. has been topped by an Asian country for the biggest and the best. The Christmas lights around the lighted tree in front of the city hall of Seoul kind of put anything the U.S. does to shame. Makes the tree at Rockefeller Center or in front of the White House pale by comparison.

Implications - Countries have begun to create unique installations as a method to gain publicity and ultimately tourism. These countries wish to continue to prosper during their off-tourist seasons. By creating publicity events such as Seoul's City Hall and their Christmas lights, regions can boast additional allure to draw in tourists who desire to see them.
