Je-Hwangsan 3

This is the last part of our Je-Hwangsan park adventure. Pictures were taken at the bottom of the park except the first one. Here in Korea, street vendors are pretty much everywhere, just like in the Philippines. The only difference is that its so clean here, they're very discipline when it comes to surrounding cleanliness.

Here's John and Rylie looking at the flowers for sale.

Here's the fresh fruits. Strawberries here are sweet and yet very cheap.


One thing I learned here is that, if you are not planning to buy, don't hold or ask about it or else they get mad when you don't buy 'em.. I don't know if it applies to everybody but I experienced it twice.
Alrighty, thanks a lot friends for always visiting and sharing your opinions and ideas.

Je-Hwangsan Park Part 2

Here's the second part of our adventure in Je-Hwangsan park here in Chinhae. The photos below were taken when we were at the top of this tall Building. When we get to the top, we got so excited with the beautiful scenery and we took a lot of pictures, when we were done taking pix that's when we noticed the sign that taking pictures in that are is not allowed lol.. Good thing that the Koreans that were with us didn't throw us down lol... I'm sorry if we offended the locals for taking these pics. We didn't mean it, we just didn't see it at first.
At the very top of this building is a big patio where you can hold some party or gatherings.
Here are some of the photos we took when we were inside the motorail car going up.

Here are the views you will enjoy when you are on top of that building.
Okay guys I hope you've enjoyed the short tour about Chinhae Korea through the photos...but wait... Watch out for the third part, the journey is not over yet hehehe.

Je-Hwangsan Park Part 1

When we first came here, the building on the other side of the town immediately captured our eyes. It light up every night that it's very beautiful to watch. It has 365 steps going up, a good place to do exercise eh? Our daughter calls it "My Building" because she always look at it eevery night because of the colorful lights. We decided to go there last Saturday. EJ is telling us to hurry up... He has a gas butt in him lol..

One of the famous circles in town..
See that building on top? That's the Je-Hwangsan Park
Entrance and Exit to Motorail.
waiting for the motorailcar..
My daughter's photography contribution.. Featuring my ugly face lol..
Inside the motorailcar going up..
Before going up, I took some pics of my S-Hearts. You can go up to the top by riding the elevator or by climbing up through the stairs.. Of course we took the elevator lol..

A young Korean couple who were dating are very nice, they took a picture of us.


Taken on top of the building

EJ was so fascinated by these ants.
