This trip happened December of 2010, back then I didn’t have the slightest idea that I will be having my own blog. And this article has been an empty draft since I first started this blog site more than a year ago, after watching another korean film ( Miracle in Cell No. 7, loved it!) I finally felt “inspired” (again) to finish this article.
This is the first and only time I tried a “Group Tour”, meaning all the itinerary from flight and hotel accommodations (and most of the meals) to places to visit are all prepared by a tour agency. I will try to relived this experience and share to all of you through the photos that I have taken, please enjoy.
Our flight from Singapore’s Changi Airport was delayed for an hour and after 5 & 1/2 hour above the ground, we landed at Seoul’s Incheon Airport, both airport are always on a tight race for world’s best airport award.
It’s winter season during this time so the weather is VERY cold, this “electric fan” caught my attention. Instead of blowing wind, it blows heat to warm you while waiting for your bus to Safari World.
We spent the whole afternoon in Everland Theme Park afterwards we took a long bus ride to Taebak City in Gangwon Province to stay overnight at O2 Ski Resort.
Before checking in at O2 Ski Resort, we drop by to a neighborhood area to to experience having dinner in a traditional korean house also known as Hanok
Day 2: O2 Ski Resort in Taebaek City, Gangwon Province
Highlight of the Day: Skiing at O2 Ski Resort
After the skiiing activity, we were brought to Mt. Sorak National Park whose beauty is accented by it’s granite peaks, lush green valleys and dense forest. We’re supposed to ride a cable car to asced the summit but due to strong winds, it was cancelled.
