Cho Ha Young, Year 7, Taylor’s International School
Korea is the land of morning calm because of its spell binding natural beauty of picturesque high mountains and clear waters and its splendid tranquility, particularly in the morning. There are several reasons why Korea is a good place to visit.
Firstly, there are beautiful and famous mountains in Korea. Baek Du San is the highest mountain in Korea. There is fresh air in the mountain. If we go there, we can relax. When we breathe in the fresh air, we will feel calm. Seol Ak San is a another famous mountain. It is a good place to exercise. There is a temple there and Buddhists like to go there to pray. It is very stony at the top so it is difficult to climb.
Secondly, Korean cities are beautiful, especially at night. In the famous cities, there are many things to see. We can go to a famous park and ride bicycles. At night, if you go out, you will see bright lights. Moreover, there are many interesting and beautiful festivals in Korea. There are very colourful firecracker festivals. There is also a Cherry Blossom Festival. We can see wonderful cherry blossoms and many other flowers too. The festivals are really amazing.
Thirdly, there is a lot of delicious food in Korea. The most famous food is kimchi which is made from cabbage. When we go on a picnic, we usually pack and eat kimbap which is made with vegetables. We eat brown seaweed soup when it is our birthday. We have rice cake soup and manduguk when it is Korean New Year. We enjoy eating sweet rice cake when it is Independence Day. There is a spicy rice cake which you need to try at least once in your lifetime!
In conclusion, there are many things to see, buy, eat and wear in Korea. If you go to Korea, you should stay at least ten days. I hope it is fun for you!
