One of the four seasons in South Korea is Summer! The summer period from June to August sees hot and humid weather. But, that doesn’t stop tourist from visiting the country. Actually, it is also the best season to visit the hidden gems of Seoul, discovering new places and wear your most fashionable Summer outfit. Just don’t forget to wear sunscreen every time!
Our Summer Escapade starts in one of the most beautiful resorts in South Korea. The Hanwa Resort Seorak Sorano. Located in the Seorak Mountain area, province of Sokcho! Where you can enjoy the picturesque scenery of Mt. Seorak and East-Sea all year long. The resort has a vibe of Italian style, for its infrastructure designs are inspired by Tuscany in the South of Italy. You can book a staycation which price starts from 80,000 Korean won, or $60 (Php 3,200).
It is also just 20-minute drive away from the Sokcho Beach and Sokcho Market!
The resort has a waterpark which is called WATERPIA, a hot spring theme-park, where there are a lot of giant slides, wave-pool, athletic pool, jacuzzi, and different water activities. Perfect for kids, friends, families, and for everyone. The resort requires proper swimming attire and also a cap. This waterpark is a really fun place to stay a day. For just about 60,000 Korean won, or $50 dollars (Php2,500). Affordable yet amazing place to spend your Summer!
It’s actually so cold outside the waterpark since it is located on the mountain. That’s why you have to go inside the hot-spring pools and jacuzzis! If you can’t bear the cold breeze outside, there is still a lot of indoor water activities. On the second floor of the resort, there are also cafes and restaurants, where you can have a cup of coffee, have a snack or even large meals.
Here are the MAJOR AND EXTREME WATER ACTIVITIES I HAD ENJOYED SO MUCH!
