There are many reasons why I love to travel and see the beauty of  what the world may bring to us. I deeply in love with Korea and it's one of the best reason that I got inspired to wrote my travel getaways. I was really amazed how beautiful Korea is. 

South Korea is on my first wish list to visit if I had given the chance. You want to know why?

Korea has it's own unique diversity.When it comes to it's beautiful places, Korea has a natural beauty. There are places that you can experience the traditional village from Joseon dynasty and traced the Korean thousand years of history. Though there is a place that holds sadness over division of Korea there is also a place that you can spend the peaceful time inside nature gifted territory. Korea, a city that embrace the future, a town behind modern times and a street that lights up of it's people.

When it comes to their rich culture, I am eagerly to learn more about it and tell the world how much they value their traditions. One of the things that I need to do if I have given the chance to visit Korea is to wear their traditional Korean costume, the Hanbok which I have seen it in many historical Korean dramas and movies. I can see the vibrant color and how graceful it is. What about staying in a Hanok Village? Yes, I definitely want to experience the past lifestyle of  Korea.And what about traditional Korean food? Oh well....who doesn't want food,right? Korea has it's own style of table setting which make you drooling. Many delicious foods are there in the table. Korea was known to be the land of Kimchi-licious.

Because it's the First Time | YUKO FESTIVAL in Hualien County, TW

 " Small packages comes with a big thing. " Yeah, sometimes you don't have to be extravagant to experienced some things that are unforgettable.

HUALIEN YUKO FESTIVAL gives you an experience that is so memorable for those who went and interested about it. Earlier I posted about this event and now I will tell you what I experienced. So expect many photos of me.

Pretty, prettier, prettiest, who?sshhh....

This is us, I'm not belong to them because they are the ayi's (mandarin for aunt) who performed a traditional Japanese dance. I just make sure that I will a get a group picture of them and I got it. LOL
But the epic was I'm not prepared to wear those white white socks and my Yukata was a little bit short for me. The Yukata was a little bit insufficient to accommodate all the interested people who went for this event. And since you can wear it for 1 hour the people who comes first used the complete Yukata and the prettier one. I'm just lucky that I got the luckiest one..the red color and it makes it like Japanese - Chinese traditional costume with matching red umbrella.

Oh that kid, she's so cute...
I have no companion to take a picture of me but I'm thankful because the people are very kind to me. I asked them and they we're happily lend their help and likewise too. I took a picture of them especially if they are a group of family.


They are just so cute to not took a picture with them.


It's the entrance of the traditional house. As we can always see in many books or even in movies Japan houses usually used sliding doors and sometimes it has it's bamboo leafy print but this one is just plain. The division of the house used sliding also to get to another room just like this house,


Just another picture in front of the house.

Event where there are dances and playing instruments entertainment.

 Above products is where you can buy worth of 300 TWD in exchange of wearing the Yukata, the Traditional Japanese garments. I just bought 1 item worth 299 TWD but the owner it's okay and she considered it and wrote it on the back of it's store name which you will present as ticket to wear the Yukata. Not bad, right? You have already an item and you can have memorable experienced. And of course you will presented an ID when entering and I got lucky again that I bring my passport even if I forgot my Alien Residence ID. Just a lucky day and it's the first time for me.

Next year again...
