Taste the Peninsula's Best Brews at the Great Korean Beer Festival 2016

Craft beer has been on the rise in the food scene for several years now here in South Korea. These tasty brews, which boast distinct, individual characteristics, are slowly replacing their watery counterparts (cough Hite, cough Cass) that have dominated the beer market over the past few decades.

In the past, one had to go all the way to Itaewon and its surrounding areas to get a taste of craft brews (which may or may not be one of the reasons I moved there), but fortunately, as craft beer has become more mainstream, even general supermarkets keep certain varieties in stock.

Best Spring Korean Festivals in 2016

Spring is a great time of the year to explore Korea. The weather is warm and usually dry, and there are many Korean festivals to enjoy. That isn’t to say that the other three seasons don’t have any festivals. There are ice fishing festivals in winter, and many different festivals in fall, but some of the best festivals of the year are in spring. Here are some of the Korean festivals that you can visit during the springtime.

Budget Travel Tip: Gangwon Shuttle Service

Traveling in Korea doesn't have to break the bank. It's also easier than one might imagine, even for foreigners. Especially for foreigners.

In an effort to increase tourism in their regions, many provincial governments have begun to offer special services to international guests. Lucky us! One such example is the Gangwon Shuttle Service sponsored by Gangwon Province. This shuttle bus is a great way for foreigners to experience Korea's most breathtaking natural landmarks as well as some of its best festivals.



Seoul Lantern Festival

I was skimming through some photos in my camera and found a lot of pictures from last year’s Seoul Lantern Festival which my husband and I came to see before we went to the Philippines in November. I was going to talk about the festival and share the photos in my blog, but I suffered from “temporary amnesia” as a result of my preoccupation with our business in the PI. Now I’m back in Korea, back to sanity, back to blogging… but I miss my Mom and the family back home. I can’t wait to see them again this summer.

Ulsan Art Fair

The new cubic centre in downtown Ulsan.

I had the pleasure of being a part of the Ulsan Art Fair this past Sunday at the new “Cubic Square” public area in Shinae. I must admit that I felt like I was jumping into to someone else’s project a little bit but I was pleasantly surprised by the warmth and friendliness of all those who were a part of the planning and the event itself!


Ulsan’s Daeboreum Festival

Here are some shots from Ulsan’s festival held last Monday. It was a strange festival simply because it didn’t have that “huge celebration” feel to it like other years. Yes there was a stage with acrobats and the announcers mics were on full blast but I guess I wasn’t really in “the mood” or really feeling that creative. Perhaps I was a little burnt out from all the photo work that I have been doing lately but for whatever reason, to me, these photos are simply “meh”
