MY KOREA TRIP

My Korea Trip

 I went for a 5 day tour to South Korea last week . Our tour brought us to Seoul ,

the capital of Korea.

On the second day , ( as our first day was spent on the plane )

We visited the Kyongbokkung Palace ,

the formal palace of the Choson established by Yi Song Gye , the founding

King of the Choson Dynasty . We also visited the National Folklore Museum and the

presidential Blue House that day  .

***

 

At the National Folklore Musuem , we saw history brought  to life

in those lifelike statues that move and gesture . They are so interesting to watch

as they are very

lifelike , set in their  appropriate backgrounds .

***

That day was really exhausting , as we didn't go to bed at all , the night before .

 We only snatched what sleep we could on our 6 hour flight from KLIA M'sia to Seoul .

***

The third day saw us on the go again . The schedule was fully packed  everyday .

That day we visited Korea Floritopia 2002 , a grand Exhibition of Flowers .

 We had the apportunity to see all sorts of flowers ,

big or small , indoors or outdoors  . Apart from that , it was also a day when we

could buy all sorts of souvinirs and tasted all sort of foodstuff and drinks .

I enjoyed my small bowl of ice-cream particles which cost me RM 6.00

per small bowl. There were also many resting huts for

visitors to sit and rest ; lots of toilets when nature calls.

***

Another interesting place is LOTTE World in Seoul . It is somewhat like

the Disney World. Here we enjoyed train , boat , sky  ,  whatever rides

that were very exciting .

***

On the fourth day , our couch broght us to a DMZ tour of the DORA Observatory

and the Korean War Memorial Hall ( Also

known as the Anti - Communist Hall )

We saw films of the crulety of wars , seperating families ,friends ,lovers ;

only to have fathers meeting sons , brothers meeting brothers

at the medans  of wars ; wars that

turns   North Korea and South Korea into two seperate countries.

 We saw the tunnels , ten  of them , dug by the North Koreans to attack South Koreans  .

 

****

Another attraction of this trip is to be able to see the World Cup Soccer  Stadium.

Needless to say , we went  for those World Cup Tshirts , hats , badges , bags

key chains and so on.

***

It is also interesing to note that the Koreans eat   lots  of fresh

vegetables which they plant in rows with neat covers to protect  them

from pests and excessive heat . Almost all the lands are fully utilized .

***

Meerly visiting the country is not enough , we must also bring back some memories ,

some photos , some souvinirs and friendship  . For this trip , visitors usually

 buy back the famous Korean ginseng  and stones from the

Amethyst Factory . Both of these commodities cost a fortune .

***

Well , that's so much ,  I can remember about my Korean Trip.

I could have written a longer account , had I not  always been dozing off

into slumber land when our Korean tourist guide supplied

us with such detailed  informations  of his country .
