While Suncheon is a city well-known for the industry and agriculture, the downtown of Suncheon has been divide into 2 portion: an old town (구도심) and a new town (신도심).

For our morning tour, I was pretty excited as we were paying a visit to:

Located at the southern part of South Korea, Suncheon Drama Set is known as the largest filming site in Korea as it caters about 200 buildings within it.

Pretty excited to see ‘Baker King Kim Tak Gu’ poster, which was a pretty old film~

 Look! Even the entrance is a TV frame! 😀 Continue reading

Ever since smart phone has been invented, my mom has been calling me a ‘phone slave’ simply because I’m always on my phone.

Your eyes ain’t playing tricks on you. I DID mentioned UNLIMITED ! ! ! !
I had a great time streaming and downloading all my stuffs from Naver & Melon since the data was unlimited. ㅋㅋㅋ

I had the same reaction back then as well.
Love the convenience and thankful to be able that these Data provider items on hand even before I got myself landed into kimchi-land~
(Those who travelled to Korea way before 2013 should know how much hassle we got to get through in order to get those Data!!!)
Connections were great even when we were travelling to some outskirt venue like Suncheon Drama Open Film set (entry will be coming up very soon~) ! ! ! !
There are many times  I even open up my phone Tethering data service to share with some of them and it works perfectly fine and good too.
Clear instructions were provided for you to amend on the phone settings once you insert the sim-card into your phone as well.

Apparently this is the pricing I saw on their website:

Alternatively, you can do your bookings of these Unlimited Data sim-card or WIFI egg rental (read my past entry here) through their website as well:

Famous for its beautiful beaches and marinas, it is no doubt that Yeosu was being picked as host city for the 2012 World Expo. I couldn’t hold my excitement when I got to know that Yeosu was part of the plan itinerary for us simply because of the bittersweet moments I had with it:
1) I had full of regrets for not making a trip down to the Expo exhibitions back in 2012
2) Yeosu was being picked as part of my Thesis writeup for my assignment papers back in University days Continue reading

45minutes bus ride away from Geoje got us landed to another beautiful coastal port city, Tongyeong (통영시), in Gyeongsangnam-do.
It is often locally compared to the beautiful Italian port city of Naples where the sea is notably pristine and clear.
(the locals usually plan a 2D1N/3D2N trip to Busan-Geoje-Tongyeong as a short getaway!)

One of the main highlights in Tongyeong would be Dongpirang Village (동피랑마을) which filled up with murals wall paintings.
(Super Junior Kyuhyun recommended this place in “Experience Korea with Super Junior” for the tourists to visit too!)
No doubt, it’s a great place for anyone to have nice shots for your instagram though. Continue reading
