We stayed at the Delpino Golf & Resort in Gangwon-do during our time at Mount Sorak. The large balcony of our room offers breathtaking views of the mountain and surrounding areas.
These photos are some of my favourite collections taken at night and early morning. The place is truly enormous and it's tough to capture the entirety of the landscape with just one photo. It would have been better if you have one of those 360 degree cameras to capture them all. :)
As the name implies, the unusual rock formation is said to be the shape of a dragon’s head that lies on the beautiful seashore at Jeju Island in South Korea. There are many legends associated with the origin of this rock, but the one I find most fascinating was that a dragon was sent to Halla Mountain to gather bullocho, a herb of eternal youth, but unfortunately, he was struck with the arrow of the enraged mountain god. This turned him into stone, his head looking up towards heaven and his body submerged in the sea.
Also known as Yongduam Rock, it is one of the nine sites in Jeju Island that has been awarded the status of UNESCO Global Geoparks. According to my tour guide, the unique landscapes were the result of volcanic eruptions and thousands and thousands of years of wind, water and lava forming them into different shapes today.
It was drizzling and windy when we first arrived and taking sharp pictures
were rather difficult as the only sources of light were spot light bulbs placed along the pathways.
Despite of the strong wind and cold weather, I was glad I was able to
get a few good shots in such circumstances.
A great place to spend time with your loved one, enjoy the beauty and solitude and sound of the waves.
Since Christmas is just a few weeks away, I thought it would be nice to start off the week sharing some Christmas photos captured at Yeoju Premium Outlets in South Korea. Everything looks so festive here and I'm really excited for this time of year.
A glittering Christmas tree greet visitors who passed by
Cute and cuddly teddy bears calling for attention
A cool Mini Coupe decorated with reindeer antlers and a yellow nose. How cute! I would love to take it for a joyride. :)
Delightful reindeers grinning happily enjoying the occasion.
And here's little Santa, all ready for the yuletide season.
Advertising in South Korea featuring a stellar collection of established stars. This is a wonderful spot to capture advertising as there are stellar billboards
everywhere. Here are some pics I took during my visit to Lotte Duty Free shop.
One of the top amusement parks in South Korea is Everland Theme Park located in Yongin. Although I find the attractions not as entertaining as the ones in Disneyland and Universal Studios Singapore, the beauty of this park is impressive.
The theme park consists of 5 distinct zones namely Global Fair, Zoo-Topia, European Adventure, Magic Land and American Adventure. I didn't get to see everything due to lack of time but it's still an enjoyable day and a pretty good theme park in its own right.
It was a weekend when we visited the park and as expected, there were extremely long queues at the ticket booths.
While waiting for my tour guide to collect ticket passes, I spent my time wandering around the park at the height of the autumn season. The air was crisp and refreshing and not too cold either.
As we entered the park, we were warmly welcomed by the delightful Christmas decorations bringing festive joy to everyone.
Moving along the Magic garden, we came across this enchanting Christmas magic
tree dressed in glittering reindeers, lovely ribbons and shiny baubles.
One of the most thrilling rides in the park, the Double Rock Spin will leave your head spinning 360 degrees in the air. Definitely not for me. I'll probably suffered a massive heart attack if I ever get on one.
We proceeded to take the cable car which took us downhill to another zone.
We discovered Mystery Mansion where visitors are allowed to shoot 'ghosts' with laser guns.
Here's a view of T-Express, the world's steepest wooden roller coaster, stretching as far as the eyes can see. It looks terrifying and I don't think i can handle this kind of ride either. I almost get sick watching it and definitely not for the faint-hearted.
Within the park, there are also beautiful gardens and lovely flower arrangements which have been year-round fixtures since 1985 for the Rose Festival.
