South Korea: Day 4

We started our day to Sangsoo Herb Land which houses 1,000 species of herbs. The greenhouse keeps herbs fresh even during winter. Sangsoo Herb Land is well-know for its flowers that bloom all year. The highlight of this visit was we got to have flowers for lunch. I added too much chili and therefore, mine went kaput. Anyhow, it was a different experience so, I am giving two thumbs up for this.

On our way to Daegu, we stopped at The Gam Wine Tunnel. It claimed to be the world’s first persimmon wine cellar. This tunnel is a the perfect place for aging persimmon wine which is made by the process of fermenting seedless persimmons. It has become increasingly popular due to its scenic location. Inside the tunnel, the temperature stays at 15 Celsius all year! It is really cooling inside but wet. Definitely a good place to hide during summer. Anyhow, the highlight of this trip was wine sampling! I know, right?

We called it a day at Daegu. Before we were sent back to our hotel, we went to a nearby shopping mall.

I walked up to the top of the mall and came across this Ticket Box. It is so advanced in Korea! If this is brought into Malaysia, we can kiss the queue goodbye and welcome ticket box with open arms!
