Volunteer in Seoul

Posted on

Why not be a kindred spirit for your trip to Korea this time? Do something different by being a volunteer in Seoul and get to know the ‘real’ Korea instead of the usual limelight. I realize that there are some of you who not only visit Korea once but a few times a year or […]

Strawberry Picking in Seoul

Posted on

Winter is the time when strawberry is most abundant in Korea. It is also the best time to do strawberry picking if you visit Korea around January to May. The sweetness of Korean strawberry could not be compared with the ones locally grown in Malaysia, definitely. Weather is partly to blame. However, Malaysia is richer […]

Hwaseong Fortress Part 2

Posted on

Remember when my friends’ visited Suwon in 2010? Apparently it’s not Hwaseong Fortress but Hwaseong Haenggung (palace) instead. My bad for not checking it properly. You need to pay separate admission entrance for Hwaseong Fortress -1,000 won and Hwaseong Haenggung – 1,500 won. As time didn’t allow them to track Hwaseong Fortress, they quit the […]

Thank you for the tip from Nisa. Korea Tourism has come out with a new slick and more adventurous option to reach Nami Island from Gapyeong Station apart from the normal ferry ride from the jetty and you might just want to try it.

Volunteering in Korea : Part 2

Posted on

It’s kinda weird to suggest volunteering in your itineraries if your intention of exploring Korea is mostly about having fun and pampering yourself, right? ^^ But, volunteering is almost on top of my list when I want to travel. I have this weird notion that you don’t need a lot of money to enjoy yourself while travelling. The […]

Picture from http://www.holtinternational.org/ Recently, I contacted one of this blog readers; Miera who had volunteered at Molly’s Home Holt Ilsan Orphanage in Ilsan, South Korea.

The kind hearted Miera has agreed to answer my relentless curiosity about her experience […]

Ice Skating in Seoul

Posted on

Winter is here and it’s time to sharpen your skating skill!! ^^ Honestly, I don’t know how to skate at all and it’s natural to envy Kim Yuna’s skill ^^. No intention to learn it though cause I love snowboarding more than skating. Snowboarding invokes a different kind of adrenaline rush for me like jumping on the […]

Snow Sledding in Seoul

Posted on

When I went to Phoenix Ski Resort in December 2009, I thought that the slopes were way too dangerous for kids and children below 7 years old to enjoy with their family. Not only that; to learn skiing or snowboarding at the ski resort will need you to rake out another 50,000 -100,000 won per coaching session. […]
