Korea: Petite France

After going to Nami Island, we hop on the bus again to go to Petite France. (You can see my Nami Island post and the details of this hop on hop off bus here: http://lushangel.com/2016/11/30/korea-nami-island/) Petite France is a French-style theme park that was constructed in July 2008 in Gyeonggi Province, South Korea. It serves as both a French cultural village and a youth training facility (Goseong Youth Training Center), and consists of 16 French-style buildings where visitors can lodge and experience French food, clothing, and household culture. The concept of Petite France encapsulates ‘flowers, stars, and the Little Prince.’ The village contains a memorial hall dedicated to Saint-Exupery, the author of the celebrated French novel, Le Petit Prince (1943) and as such it is called the Little Prince theme park. It also has a gallery displaying sculptures and paintings of le coq gaulois (the Gallic rooster), the national symbol of France; Orgel House where a 200-year-old music box plays a sweet melody; a shop that sells herbal and aromatic products; a souvenir shop; and many other locales where you can experience French culture. The village can accommodate up to 200 visitors with 34 guest rooms that hold four to ten people each. Enjoy the marionette experience and hear percussion instruments from around the world, and also enjoy soap bubble experience. -http://english.visitkorea.or.kr/ Here are more photos around Petite France… The colorful palette is...

Korea: Nami Island

Finally, I’m posting my most recent Korea trip. I know, I owe you guys a lot of travel posts. Browsing through the photos of my travels overwhelm me, to be honest. Well, one step at a time. Hehe! Anyway, this was my Korea trip last June. It was definitely good to be back! A lot has changed since I last went here with my family. If I’m not mistaken, that was 10 years ago! Therefore, I decided to go back to the touristy spots again. First stop was Nami Island. The first time I went here, I joined a group tour so the time was quite limited. It was a good decision to go on our own for this trip since it’s easy to reach Nami Island and of course, a lot cheaper than joining a tour. How to go to Nami Island? From Seoul, just take the train and get off Gapyeong station. This can take about 2 hours from Seoul city center. Then, from Gapyeong station, you can actually take a taxi to Nami Island. But since you’ve already traveled to Gapyeong, I suggest you also go to other places worth visiting within the city. You can take the Gapyeong City Tour Bus, which costs 6,000 won for adults. It’s like a hop on hop off bus with scheduled stops, which is usually every 30 minutes. It can take you...
