Tour and See the World! My South Korea Trip, part 6 - More Scenes from Jeju Island and The All In House
Tour and See the World! My South Korea Trip, Everland Theme Park, part 2
Welcome back. I won't be posting about my trip in the order that I went, meaning in chronological order, but I will be instead posting about themes. And my first theme in my South Korea trip is Everland, also known as Yongyin Everland Theme Park. (Hey, this homegrown South Korean place is so good to visit that some people compare it with Disneyland!)
Everland is so beautiful and interesting that actually a single travel blog post isn't going to do much justice to it. I visited Everland in 2005, and revisiting it in 2010 was simply marvellous. I would say that Everland is a myriad mixture of a theme park, a zoo, a flower garden full of flowers and arrangements, and also a shopping complex. It's all that rolled into one park, and I strongly recommend that you visit it when you visit Korea! :)
There are many areas and zones in Everland that you can visit and play in, depending on your interests and hobbies. I would say that spending one day there is sufficient if there aren't many people and it isn't crowded. However, if Everland is crowded, most likely you'd have to visit it a second time to see that you've not exhausted all its possibilities! Without further ado, please enjoy the wonderful pictures that Mavis and I took from Everland, South Korea! Thanks for reading and cheers.
Tour and See the World! My South Korea Trip, part 1
Welcome to my South Korea trip! In the next few blog posts, I will be writing about and posting pictures of South Korea, but mainly the places that I have visited and the theme parks that I like. Admittedly, there are many people who visit South Korea for reasons different from mine - they go because they like Korean movie or TV stars; they go because they want to see the sights and sounds of a country with hills and trees; or they go, like me, because they want to go to play at Lotte World and Everland, and try the hot springs and dip into the pools at the Decksan Spa!
So stay tuned here on this travel site of mine where I will post about all these interesting sights and sounds and more! I visited Jeju island and other parts of South Korea, mainly Seoul. Apart from Lotte World and Everland, as well as the Decksan Spa Castle, I also visited the War Museum in Seoul, the famous mysterious road in Jeju island (I think!) where cars mysteriously move up slopes, the famous Teddy Bear museum, the Green Tea museum and shop, as well as some other small time but interesting places I visited with Mavis. Thanks for reading and I hope you love my travel pictures!
Tour and see the world - South Korea!
Tour and See the World! Perth, Western Australia, part 11
OK, I am back after a short break from blogging and writing on various topics! Let's jump right back into it. In this post, I show you pictures of real estate in Perth, Western Australia... and a scene from the City Centre as well as Miss Maud, which apparently is a very famous hotel chain. Miss Maud is a Swedish Hotel (I think the full name is something like Miss Maud Swedish Hotel) and can be found throughout Perth, selling all sorts of pastries, cakes, food and of course providing some kind of hotel stay as it is mainly about accomodation, after all. I would say that it appears to be a major "in" thing in Perth. A kind of must-do! Without further ado: wonderful landed properties by the Swan River, in the wonderful neighbourhood where my lucky uncle stays, the Perth City Centre, and the Miss Maud hotel in the heart of Perth... right here!
Tour and See the World! St Mary's Cathedral, Perth, Western Australia part 10
OK we have finally reached Perth proper here on Tour and See the World! I first show you pictures of St Mary's Cathedral here in East Perth, Western Australia, followed by the picture of a Dutch explorer (I think! I should go and check it up one day) overlooking the beautiful Swan River in Perth. By the way, St Mary's Cathedral is, according to my uncle, a Roman Catholic Church that seats the archbishop. I hope you do enjoy visiting; I certainly enjoyed looking at the half modern, half not-so-modern construction of the Church!
Tour and See the World! Observation City and the City of Stirling, Western Australia part 9
In this post, we visit Observation City and the City of Stirling in Western Australia! There are quite a few names for the famous big hotel here, as my uncle told me, some call it Observation City, while others call it Rendezvous Hotel. Then I went to see the official site and discovered that it's apparently called Rendezvous Observation City Hotel, Perth. This hotel overlooks the soft white and very very beautiful Scarborough Beach, and of course overlooks the beautiful Indian Ocean. It's a pity, however, that when I visited the beach, some vandals had marred the sign "City of Stirling" though. Nonetheless, the clear blue skies, beautiful beach, and the vastness of the Indian Ocean more than make up for that!
Tour and See the World! Joondalup, Western Australia part 8
In this post, we tour and visit Joondalup, Western Australia! Sadly, I didn't take many pictures of Joondalup (oh well!) and so we're going to make do with these: first and foremost, the beautiful view of the beach at Joondalup; second, the bicycle and running track along the coast at Joondalup; and finally the Lakeside Shopping City at Joondalup, where my uncle, father, brother and I had our breakfast and lunch and went shopping! As some general information about the city would be quite relevant here, I got information from the Joondalup City website: Joondalup is a small city about 99km sq in size, cosmopolitan and international in nature and atmosphere, especially at and around the city centre, and it is 25 mins north of Perth along the Mitchell Freeway. In other words, it's northward and near Perth. Hope you enjoy the beautiful pictures of this very picturesque place, which should be worth a short visit if you're at Perth!
Tour and See the World! Sorrento Quay, Western Australia, part 7
In this post, here on my travel site, I show you the beautiful Sorrento Quay with its serviced apartments for rent and the wonderful yachts and boats in their bays, floating gently upon the peaceful water! There are also many novelty and simple shops at Sorrento Quay. Sorrento Quay is about 20 minutes north of Perth, Western Australia and boasts a beautiful view of the ocean. I also went to have a look at the Sorrento Quay website and found that it is located on Western Australia's Sunset Coast and that it's actually completely named the Sorrento Quay Boardwalk! Be careful not to fall into the water while walking alongside the quay, though! And also be careful of the flying birds when you're walking... wear a cap, if you know what I mean :) Below, you will see: the beautiful boats and yachts in their berths, the apartments for rent (or also probably for buying as well), and last but not least the mall/ shopping areas of Sorrento Quay. I think this place is definitely worth a short visit, and definitely worth a long visit if you're considering buying a yacht!
Tour and See the World! Claremont Heritage Trails, Western Australia part 6
In earlier posts, I wrote about Kings Park, Cottesloe Coast, Subiaco, Fremantle and Mandurah in Western Australia, here on Tour and See the World! In this post, I visit Perth's Claremont Heritage Trails. Actually, I think it should be said that Australia has a lot of beautiful parks and wonderful trails to walk along as well as scenic rivers and wonderful ocean coasts, so this one might actually seem pedestrian amongst the many wonders in Australia. But oh well, I visited it so here goes: you can see the many boats and yachts in the river (I believe it's the Swan River), and the park is big enough to explore and certainly cosy enough for picnics on a good day with fine weather! :)
There will be more scenes of yachts and sailing boats, especially since I also visited Sorrento Quay, which has many yachts for sail (that's a pun, I meant many yachts for sale :) ). Sorrento Quay will come up soon in this travel site, boasting of its boats and wonderful serviced apartments overlooking the yachts in their bays. More to come on Perth and Western Australia here on my travel site, so do stay here with me as I show you the beautiful pictures from my Australian tour. Thanks for reading and cheers!
