Woke up quite early. We were told to have our breakfast in hotel lobby at 7.30am(Korea time). It was a continental breakfast (omelette, sausage and bread). After breakfast, pack up(pindah rumah) headed over to Mt. Sorak National Park, one of the most beautiful national park in Korea. (less than 1 hour). Viewed the sitting Buddha, then proceed to Gweonguemseong by Cable car ride. Luckily the weather was fine. Otherwise we won’t be able to use the cable car.
After filling up our stomach, we proceed to Teddy Bear Farm which is quite near actually. For teddy bear lovers, I’m pretty sure you would love the place! It displays assorted teddy bears and some even dressed in traditional costume. I was pretty impressed! Despite that, there are assorted teddy bears are for sale. Couldn’t resist the cuteness, I get Alex to buy me one! Yeah…..new family member in my room.
WELCOME HOME TEDDY!
Next destination was Daepuhang Fish Market. Over here you can get many types of fresh & live seafood. All the stall en-queued the whole street. Some of it I’ve not even seen before! You may pick your choice of seafood and get the seller to cook it for you. You may either consume it raw(sashimi) or grill.Besides the live & fresh ones; you can also purchase the dried ones from the shops along the street.
Continued our journey for the next pit-stop. What’s next? DINNER!! Sorry pals….vacations are normally eat, sleep & shop.hehehe…..What’s for dinner today? What’s cooking Azuma? (auntie in Korea language). Azuma said; *Mushroom Steamboat* worr….huh..steamboat for 2 consecutive meals?? Whatever larr…as long as it tasted nice to me. :-p (I did not eat much wor….as my previous snack from fish market still there in my stomach neh).
After our meals, we traveled to our next hotel. This time would be YONGPYONG RESORT. I would say its the best hotel/room for the entire trip. The hotel has a big convenient store located on the ground floor. Besides that; they also have a huge skiing area. You can actually ski there during winter.
