Do you love summer? Well, I love summer but not all the time because it makes me sick and gives me a bad headache.
What reminds you on summer season? The beach… I know a lot people loves the beach. Summer season foods like halo-halo, this is actually a Philippine food so if you are in Korea bingsu is the one best food on summer season or the cold noodles.
My first summer here was last year and this year will be my second time. We went to the valley, beach and waterpark. From our way to the valley, there’s a place where you can stopped by, eat and take picture from the beautiful view of the mountain. My husband’ s family went to a camping last 2012.
VALLEYS. A valley is a low area between hills and often have a river running into it. And South Korea have many of these valleys and well known to be visited during summer. This photo was taken at Yangyang, Gangwon-do.
MOUNTAINS. South Korea have the best geographic view because this country is surrounded with beautiful mountains that changes it colors in every season. Mt. Seoraksan is the highest mountain in Taebaek mountain range in Gangwon Province. This mountain is located in a national park near the city of Sokcho.
CAMPING. Korea is a heart country for camping. There are free public campsites near the beaches. Though the campsites are free still you have to follow guidelines on how to do camping. You have to be responsible when you are camping. Do not litter, don’t spread your camping gears, don’t lit a fire ~ this is illegal. Usually official campsites have a designated place to barbeque and cook.
BEACH. If you are living in Seoul and part of Gyeonggi-do, East Sea is the best place to visit during summer. Gangwondo have the beaches, mountains and valleys. They all come in one place.
WATERPARKS. There are many waterparks in the country and some are free and some are not. Lots of people enjoy waterparks to beat the heat of summer. Since beaches are little far, you can find waterparks in Seoul, so no need to go too far just to escape the scroching heat.
