2012 is another unforgettable year and for sure was a great travel year especially in South Korea! Let me present you Korea Travel Highlights, Best of the Year 2012.










Seoul

The happening capital city of South Korea! 
The Street of Art, Hongdae, Seoul
- Hongdae, the streets of Hongik University are the place where you can experience the energy of Korea youthful nightlife. It’s a perfect place for those who love dancing and arts. It was one of the place I enjoy the most as I love the all of the art students performing on the streets!
- Dragon Hill Spa Jimjilbang, recommended by CNN Go, The New York Times, as the best place to experience full Korean style spa! The spa fully equiped with complete facilities and you will never get bore to visit multiple times! 

Busan

Busan, the second largest city in South Korea. 2 places to highlight: 
Gwangwan Bridge, the Diamond Bridge, Busan
- Haeundae Beach, is the largest beach in Korea that gains a high popularity among international visitors around the year. ‘Haeundae’ in Korean has the meaning of "Sea and Clouds" named by a scholar Choi Chi-Won from Silla Dynasty. Summer is the best time to visit and of course be prepare to face to crowd with sexy body!
- Busan Gwangwan Bridge, extends over 7.42km which connects Haeundae-gu to Suyeong-gu. In night time is the best moment to observe the glorious lights equipped on the bridge growing brightly in the darkness like a diamond.

Jejudo Island

Jejudo Island the largest island and smallest province in South Korea.
Hallasan (Halla Mountain)  
- Hallasan or Halla Mountain, is the tallest mountain in South Korea, located at the center of Jeju Island. It is relatively easy to hike mountain, simple and well-developed mountain hiking trails. All of the hiking trails are less than 10 kilometer and you could make it to the peak plus back in a day. Along the way, I can ensure you will get the best photo-shot.    
The o’sulloc Museum or Green Tea Museum, located near Seogwangdawon Jejudo, a place for visitors to learn about Korea’s traditional tea culture. No matter you are green tea lover or not, never miss to taste different kind of green tea made cakes, cookies and yogurt ice-cream.  

Winter in Korea

Daemyung Vivaldi Park: The Nighttime Skiing
- Daemyung Vivaldi Park Ski World was the first ski resort in Korea to offer nighttime skiing. I love the experience to ski in the night time and they offered the slopes are in unique designed with unexpected twists and turns for maximum thrills. I recommend this for winter sport and it is one of the ski venue near to Seoul.
