Unique Tour of the Month in Gyeongnam~

  This month let me recommend unique places to travel that is worthwhile for a visit in Gyeongnam. Sacheon is located at the southwest of Gyeongnam and one of major attractions include the aerospace museum and the Sacheonpo Port. 
  What many probably did not know is that there is a wine gallery constructed from an abandoned train tunnel in Sacheon. If you love art and wine, it is worthwhile for a visit. 

Wine Gallery Tour in Sacheon-si 


 Here is the entrance to the wine galley. As you can see the this was actually a train tunnel. Let' see how deep the tunnel goes~!


It is truly a unique space. An abandoned train tunnel becomes a cultural space filled with wines and artworks. It is an wine gallery and also a wine cafe where various house wines can be tasted. The tunnel is a perfect place to keep the wine for constant temperature of 12~17 degrees Celsius.


Another special local products of Sacheon is the kiwi that are grown in many of the farming lands. A kiwi wine is sold here at the wine gallery and a free tasting is available.
Not many people probably ever tasted or even heard of kiwi wine.^^


If you do not enjoy wine or liquor there are coffee and other drinks as well. 


How about an elegant experience at this hidden attraction of Sacheon?

Night Market Tour in Changwon 

Another place you might want to visit if you are especally a night lover is the Daekiri Night Market located inside Sangnam Market in Changwon. Changwon is the downtown area where the popular traditional marketplace is located. 


From 12 p.m to 12 a.m it operates all year round. The traditional market in Korea in order to attract more visitors have made some new improvements over the years to improve sales since they can no longer compete with big franchise markets. The market was cash only but now credit card transactions and various gift cards are available for convenience of the customers.


As you make an entrance, you will be struck by so many different kinds of foods in front of you. Let's see one of the popular menus at this market.

 Gold fish bread and chocolate fountain~!

 Sweets lovers will go crazy with this dessert. A gold fish bread filled with either red bean paste or cream covered in various frostings and toppings.


If you want a decent meal, then you must try the hand made dumplings.


You will see all of the great street foods of Korea here at the night market.



You will be just full tasting every little bit of the foods here. There are so many foods to choose from and to enjoy. If you worry about gaining a few pounds when you take a visit here remember the famous saying-"don't count calories, count enjoyment"! ^^
