Likeable Korea

There are many reasons why I like visiting Korea in the future. First, I would like to see my students. I worked in a Korean company as an online English teacher and I’ve had many Korean students who became close to me. Each of them used to ask me when I will visit them. Well, My students live in different parts of Korea so when I get there, I may have a nationwide tour lol!!!

Next, I want to see the beautiful places in Korea especially the parks, mountains, beaches and islands. I have a student who lives in Jeju Island. He said that there is a lovely mountain there in the middle of the island that is popular among skiers and hikers. Then, I’d like to go to Seoul and see the Cheongwadae (Blue House); the Korean presidential residence.

KES 2011 is Coming Soon!
Finally, I want to buy gadgets and electronic appliances in Korea because a friend said that Koreans prioritize the quality of their products. I can buy affordable and yet high quality gadgets in Korean Electronics market wohooo.
