South Korea seems to be more famous for its food, culture, drama & handsome & pretty actors/actresses than it outdoor adventure & nature. South Korea is a small country with a lot of people, so there is a huge demand for space. As a result, many of the country's natural habitats have been squeezed into smaller areas. There are 21 national parks, but the only areas of true wilderness left are the mountain forests. Hiking is more than just a pastime in South Korea—it’s a way of life. In a country where mountains make up about 70 % of the total land area, it should be no surprise that hiking is one of the top choices for recreation. In fact, according to the recent findings from a survey by Gallup Korea hiking is the most popular pastime in South Korea among natives 13 years and older. If you're the kind of person who enjoys the great outdoors, you are in for a treat.

Our route ending @ Pasir Panjang Wholesale Centre. Very interesting experience walking thru this 24 hrs place. Our General Walking Route ╠► https://goo.gl/maps/EPqHLdtQpaz ■▬► The Bukit Chermin Boardwalk, together with the Berlayer Creek mangrove trail, allow visitors to come up close to mangrove and coastal areas that were previously inaccessible. Experience nature as you walk along the shoreline of Keppel Harbour. Hugging the shoreline of Keppel Harbour, this 300 m long boardwalk provides views of mangrove trees and the rocky beach. Try spotting the fauna along the coast while enjoying views of the Sentosa and the Keppel Harbour. From the boardwalk, you can also walk along Belayer Creek, one of the few remaining mangrove creeks along the Southern part of Singapore. The boardwalk is also connected to Labrador Park. ■▬► Pasir Panjang Wholesale Centre is located on the western part of Singapore. Well-known for its buzzing morning activities, the centre is the main distribution point for imported fruits and vegetables in Singapore. With a wide variety of exotic & fresh fruits and vegetables selling at wholesale prices, the centre is also a hot shopping spot for consumers and tourists. Drawing its core crowd of wet market hawkers and restaurant owners, the wholesale centre is operational 24 hours a day. In the day, people arrive to buy and sell fruits in bulk. Night market vendors arrive to set up their stalls from 7pm onwards. ■▬► Southern Ridges: Comprising 10 km of green, open spaces that connect Mount Faber Park, Telok Blangah Hill Park, HortPark, Kent Ridge Park and Labrador Nature Reserve, these ridges are an alternative for walking enthusiasts, history buffs, shutterbugs, nature lovers, bird watchers and families looking for a different kind of family outing. ■▬► West Coast Park was first developed in 1979 on a piece of reclaimed land. The 50-ha park runs along part of the West Coast Highway, extending from the mouth of Sungei Pandan to the Pasir Panjang Wholesale Centre. The park included part of the coastline. In the late 1980s, Port of Singapore Authority (PSA) commenced reclamation on the coastline, removing almost two-thirds of the park. If you are looking for a super-duper park playground in Singapore, they don’t come much bigger or better than the West Coast Park Playground. ☺☺☺Seah Im Food Centre 5 Stalls that You Should Patronise at Seah Im Food Centre https://www.misstamchiak.com/seah-im-food-centre/ --------------------------------------------- Who is Suitable ?

My favourite is organic soya - reasonably priced. ᴥᴥᴥᴥᴥᴥᴥᴥᴥᴥᴥᴥᴥᴥ ► The Right of Common Access A big part of Swedish culture is having access to nature. In fact, it’s built into law as a public right. It basically gives people, including visitors to Sweden, the right to spend time in the great Swedish outdoors. But with this right comes responsibility. A responsibility to nature, to preserve and protect it
