Day 5 in Seoul - Part 3 (The Garden of Morning Calm, Nami Island and Strawberry Picking)

Part 3 of our Day 5 in Seoul is the day's highlight  ~
Strawberry Picking!

Seoul has the reddest and most luscious strawberries we have seen and being to able to Pick-Our-Own right from the vine was very exciting.




Strawberries are very healthy and good for us. I was actually surprised of the many health benefits of eating strawberries.
  • anti-aging
  • anti-oxidant
  • boost memory
  • good for the heart
  • regulates blood pressure
  • aids digestion
  • good for eyes and bones health
  • lowers depression
  • helps burns stored body fat
  • strengthen the immune system

The health benefits list wants me to just keep on eating strawberries. 


Leaving the Strawberry farm with (4) container full of strawberries
was a perfect way to end our day.

  1. I haven't experienced strawberry picking even in Baguio, laging hindi harvest time yung punta namin. Their strawberries looks good and yummy. Nice to know that there are so many tour packages at Klook.

  5. I love love love the strawberries in Korea - they're cheap, they're plump, and they have the right sweetness! Haven't tried strawberry picking, though. Next time i-try namin yan. :)

  8. I seldom eat strawberry. Perhaps because it is not something i am used to eating. It isnt always readily available, too. But given the chance that I could find strawberries sa grocery, I will buy and share some with my boys.

  9. Wow, those strawberries look delicious! It has been a while wondering we last did strawberry picking in Baguio but I don't think the strawberries there look as healthy and beautiful as these.

  10. Strawberry picking is always a good idea and look how luscious those are! We have only tried it once in Baguio and we absolutely enjoyed it. Strawberries are bigger and sure are plumper there!

Day 4 in Seoul (A Private Tour : Seoul ~ Sanjeong Lake, Pocheon Art Valley and Herb Island)

Our Day 4 in South Korea was in the outskirt of Seoul ~ Pocheon, Gyeonggi-do.  As it was a little difficult to reach I contacted, "This is Korea" Tours to customize a private tour for my family.

Andy, our Tour Specialist (TS) cum driver and photographer picked us up at the Metro Hotel at 11am as agreed.  It was an easy ride on board a 7-seater limousine van for our family of 4. 

Our tour was personalized based on what we wanted so long as the entire trip is all within the 10 hours we've commissioned.  For our trip, we've decided on Sanjeong Lake, Pocheon Art Valley and Herb Island.



SANJEONG LAKE

Sanjeong Lake is situated between Myeongseongsan and Mangbongsan Mountain.  Its name means "as clear as a mountain well". It was built in 1925 as a reservoir to supply to farmlands in Pocheon.


Reached Sanjeong Lake Park early afternoon ~ perfect weather for a cup of hot coffee 

Lots of things to do in the lake park.  We took a paddle boat and walked the lake promenade.

Hong Kong Disneyland Hotel Kingdom Club

We wanted a special holiday with the kids (they are growing up so fast) and decided to welcome 2018 in Hong Kong Disneyland.  It has after all been 5 years since we have last been to Hong Kong.  Though we were recently in Tokyo Disneyland, the volume of guests was heartbreakingly huge ~ to truly enjoy the park.

Check here our Visit to Tokyo Disneyland and Tokyo Disney Sea last 2016 >>> Tokyo Disneyland  and >>> Tokyo Disney Sea

We booked a 3 nights stay at the Hong Kong Disneyland Hotel and opted for an upgrade to the Kingdom Club floor.

The elegant service and perks is well worth the additional cost.

Day 2 in Seoul - Part I (War Memorial of Korea, Grevin Wax Museum and the funny Nanta Show)

"Joh-eun achim (Good Morning) Seoul"
Our Day 2 in Seoul is a DIY using Seoul's public transportation. 
After a hearty complimentary breakfast at Metro Hotel, we made our way to Myeongdong Station and headed to the first item in our itinerary.

The War Memorial of Korea
The museum is easily accessible via Subway Line 4 through Samgakji Station, Exit 12.


If you have limited time to tour Seoul and want to see at least one of the city's museums, I highly recommend visiting the War Memorial.  We also visited the National Museum of Korea and liked the War Memorial better.
We spent hours touring the Outdoor Exhibition Area alone. The warships and aircrafts exhibition is truly remarkable. This particular ship is a replica of the Korean Naval Vessel PKM 357, which was involved in bloody naval battle between North and South Korea in 2002.
