Hey guys, I’m back. Haven’t been posting for a while for several reasons (final exams, paper submissions, trips on the weekends, several farewells) but I’m back~ I’ve been wanting to try snow sports and I finally had the chance to go with Wow Korea Supporters a few weekends ago! We went to Pyeongchang, the place… Read More Ski at Alpensia Resort Pyeongchang
Gyeongju was the capital of the ancient kingdom of Silla (57 BC – 935 AD) which ruled about two-thirds of the Korean Peninsula between the 7th and 9th centuries. There are many archaeological sites and cultural properties from this period that remain in the city and because of that, Gyeongju is a city that is often… Read More Gyeongju Day Trip from Seoul
Our last destination last weekend was Suwon, a city I have visited a few months ago with my parents. A place where I thought I would never go back to. But ohh well.. I found myself back again for the second time. Suwon is basically a good place to go for a day trip from… Read More Visiting Gyeonggi Province: Suwon
We went to Yangpyeong after visiting Icheon and Yeoju on the first day and it was unexpectedly a very beautiful and memorable trip. Yangpyeong is a thirty minutes drive from Icheon.
Just came back from exploring Gyeonggi-do, the province around Seoul! We went to Yeoju and Icheon (This is a different city from INcheon, so be careful not to mix them up) on the first day, around 1.5 hours from Seoul Express Bus Terminal. These cities in Gyeonggi-do are perfect for a day trip although it may take… Read More Visiting Gyeonggi Province: Yeoju and Icheon

How to get to Pocheon From Dong Seoul Bus Terminal (Near to Gangbyeon Station in Seoul, not the one… Read More Going to Pocheon in Gyeonggi-do
Over the weekend, I went with the Explore Rural Korea Shuttle Bus on 3 different day trips from Seoul. I’ll be sharing how you can use the shuttle bus to the various places and will be reviewing the first destination in this post.
Petite France & the Garden of Morning Calm are both located in the Gapyeong area and can be visited on the same day as Nami Island. The easiest way to get to both places is to take the Gapyeong Shuttle Bus. It costs 5000 KRW for the whole day so it’s quite worth it.
