[Travel during December 2014]
If you are planning for a winter trip to Korea this year, you might want to consider The Garden of Morning Calm for its Lighting Festival. This festival will only for 3 months annually, so when I confirmed my trip to Korea last year…. I had to visit here! :)
Its takes quite a long journey to travel down, I remembered buying drinks to keep myself warm in the subway while heading over :p I’m very thankful that in Korea, we get to drink on the subway, and surprisingly, there’s no litter around. Sometimes I wish, my country have more civilise people who love their country more.
#After the lighting festival, we headed over to Jaksal for our favourite peanut chicken! :) Thanks Mavis & BF for the treat too! :)
