  • Korea, South Korea, almost unknown in this Gorge is especially water color is really beautiful. In South Korea, the fear of the unknown is a feeling that cannot be seen. Looking at the scenery from above the bridge is also cool but definitely recommend mounted Kayak. ID give only 1 hour can be rented at a reasonable price and also in South Korea, will be a special experience, not experience. If you use the car rental in southern France just a day or so, including bringing in schedules. Going to have to pay attention to the somewhat challenging drive.
