Korea Day 2: COEX Mall, Gyeongbokgung Palace, Gwangjang Market, Hongdae

COEX + Gyeongbokgung Palace + Gwangjang Market + Hongdae

Well, it certainly took me forever to update this blog series. The number of backlogs I have is too damn high. I just got back from my Japan trip last, last week (!!!) so the travel high is still with me. There’s also a 70% chance that I’m going back to Korea this year SO!!! I’m having a good year, so far! Anyway…

For my second day in Korea, I was going to meet up with Yuna and her family later that afternoon which means I have more than half of the day to myself. I didn’t have much to do in my agenda. I was only planning to visit COEX mall and that opens around 10AM.

Touchdown: Korea 2016

Touchdown Korea - Richel Goes Places

I wish I’m the kind of blogger that writes about her trips days – even weeks – after it happened, but I’m not. Here I am, more than a year after my Korea trip, and I’m just starting my backlogs. But, fret not, as I amazingly still remember everything that happened on my Korea trip last autumn.

Inflatable Island PH: A Comprehensive Travel Guide

Inflatable Island PH - Richel Goes Places

Have you heard of any floating playgrounds lately? I would assume so – it appears to be all the rage lately. And last weekend, I finally set my foot on one! It was a long trip waiting to happen. I was working weekends for the past months that it’s so hard to set an out-of-town trip with my friends and family. So, when I finally found out that I have weekends off this month, I booked us tickets to Inflatable Island PH faster than you can say “FREEDOM!”

Just a three-hour drive from Manila, Inflatable Island PH claims to be the biggest floating playground in Asia. It’s around 3400 of square meters – roughly the size of eight basketball courts! What makes it so huge? Well, it includes slides, towers, bridges, human launchers, monkey bars, swings, etc. Perfect for adrenaline junkies and beach babies – which is coincidentally what they call their visitors!

Finally in Bohol, Philippines

Bohol, Philippines

Just a two hours plane ride from Manila or an even quicker ferry ride from its more famous neighbor Cebu, Bohol offers a different set of adventure. The island is famous for its Chocolate Hills or photos of the wide-eyed tiny tarsiers. Not only that, but Bohol also have a set of white beaches and man-made forests that they can boast about.
