Cameron Highlands – Cactus Point

Cactus Point has a big area for parking and buying (free entrance) succulents and potted plants. There is also a section of old electronics and Buddhism brochures.

Korea Spring – Seoul – Changdeokgung

This is the last palace we went to. We had missed this palace on Seoul City Bus Tour, so we went on another day. If you plan to visit palaces on different days, best to get the Combined Palaces ticket instead of ala-carte tickets (buy ticket at each palace) coz it will be slightly cheaper.… Continue reading Korea Spring – Seoul – Changdeokgung
