Annyeonghaseyo Korea: Skin Anniversary, Sheep Farm & Railway

Not sure did I mentioned, but the very first destination after touched down is to Skin Anniversary, a beauty town. The tour management must have think that we din't get a good sleep on the plane so it's time to pamper ourselves with a relaxing facial treatment before we started our sight-seeing. How thoughtful is that?!

其实离开机场后第一个地方就是去Skin Anniversary美容城,据说是世界上最大的美容城哦!(应该吧,韩国都是出名美容/整容的,有一个这么炫的城也不出奇)^^

The center has just opened when we arrived, as early as 9am. But all the staffs were ready to welcoming us

The beauticians will start off with a quick analysis on our face, then given us the proper mask type from the brand Nuganic, and off we went into the big treatment room, and enjoyed a 20 minutes facial treatment. They were so efficient and professional! While I was enjoying my facial, I could hear some tour members started to snore........ xD 

Walked around the center after the facial, you can also purchase Nuganic products here, and enjoy manicure/pedicure (but we don't have extra time) 

There's a small make up room and all of us can use those samples for free

Face so smooth and clean after the facial!

Many Korean celebrities came here to do their facial treatment too!

For example, the handsome sexy Choi Si Won, seriously his body can make all ladies scream out loud!!


There's a small art gallery on ground floor...

And a mini teddy bear museum


According to the tour leader this Skin Anniversary is the world largest beauty town!

Hmmm but I wonder what does teddy bear has to do with beauty?? :p

Some toys are for sell but luckily I din't buy from there cause it's more expensive than the teddy bear museum in Jeju Island

虽然不便宜不过这些泰迪熊真的很可爱啦!女孩子都爱bear bear嘛!(小朋友上身

There's a small cafe too!

In the bus with mummy! Leaving the beauty town and proceed to our next stop~

Remember the DIY cheese experience I blogged before? It's situated at Daegwallyeong sheep farm, so definitely there're sheeps here.


See the sheeps behind us? They were so excited when they saw us walking in, they must have thought we brought them some food but no, we din't feed the sheeps that day.. So they could only continue to 'meh...meh...meh...'

Snow boarding time!


Weather is perfect this day!! Just nice~

Spotted this handsome dog at the sheep farm!
我妈不爱狗狗不过连她也忍不住要和这只帅狗拍照呢!(Erm 其实我不知道它是雌或雄,paiseh 哈哈 xD)

Heard of sea scenic train? We boarded this train during our Korea trip and we saw some fascinating sight and scenery of the coastline. 

Jeongdongjin station, world closest station to sea shore


It was so cold here!! The wind was blowing so strong!


Quite love this shot! Don't worry no train is coming from my back or front that time :p

Simply love the scenery here!

我最亲爱的妈咪,有没有像脸?嘻嘻 ;)



After 10 minutes of waiting the train is here! Let's go!

Mummy and I in the train, the ride is about 10 minutes leaving Gangneung, our bus is already there when we arrived at the next station

Thanks for reading and wishing you guys a great weekend ahead!
