Korea, Seoul: Everland

Everland is quite big with various sections suiting the requirements of individuals. For thrill-seekers, there are several thrill rides, for children and families, there are joy rides, and there's a zoo and a safari in Everland.

Zootopia was our first stop where we saw various animals such as polar bear, squirrels, penguins and in the Safari World, we saw tigers and white tigers, lions, bears roaming around freely while we sat in the Safari bus!
















 This was the Safari bus we sat


Okay, I admit, we were a bit lousy in planning our time. After visiting the Safari world, we don't really have much time left for other attractions in Everland and we head back to our tour bus. I shall come again the next time when I visit Seoul!


 Bye Everland!


Korea, Seoul: Yongpyong Ski Resort

Today we went up to Yongpyong Ski Resort and tried ski-ing.
Visit here for information on Yongpyong.




But I dun like it, keep falling and my butt hurts. I give up!

So we decided to go for sight seeing at Yongpyong at the "Winter Sonata" filming location. Taking the cable car up.



Super strong winds and my eyes can't even open. A scarf is really important in cold places, it can help keep your face warm, and make you feel more comfortable. 

Decided to hide in the cafe and get a cuppa hot chocolate.

That's pretty much sums up what I did at Yongpyong. It's too cold for me.. Not really used to and not really geared up for the coldness. lol..

Korea, Jeju: Teddy Bear Museum

Before visiting the Teddy Bear Museum, we had the famous Korean Ginseng Chicken soup for our lunch.

Pipping hot bowl of ginseng soup. There's glutinous rice in the chicken.
