    This trip was well worth the price. There wasn’t any traffic so we did everything early. It was my first time eating pizza using black rice as the dough and it was a little sweet but still delicious. The fortress has beautiful views and the cool wind was a welcomed respite from the heat. I’ve always wondered what the inside of the tombs looked like so it was fascinating to be able to finally see it.

    Someone didn’t keep social distancing well. They sat together. And the children are obstructed indirectly. The children’s parents did not ask us in advance or say they were sorry. The driver was not so kind. He would be nice to pick us up somewhere close on a hot day like today, but we walked a lot because he didn’t. And even though he was in the parking lot, he didn’t care about turning on the air conditioner in advance. I think this is the basic consideration he can do for us.

    • KoreaTravelEasy
