~~~Happy New Year~~~
How’s your new year vacation going? We really thank you so much for your support of our blog through the 2015! So this time, we want to invite you guys to some awesome Korean spas, and hope they will wash out all your fatigue and help you start a best fresh new year!
Koreans love saunas and spas! Yes we know there are thousands of them around the country, and not a hard thing at all to find a local sauna in every neighborhood in Korea. However, the spas we are introducing here are the ones so famous and unique, which will never disappoint you!
Still remember one of the best ski resort we’ve introduced in our previous post Time for Winter Skiing!!, Daemyung VIVALDI PARK Ski World? Guess what’s better, they have a great Ocean World as well!
The whole ocean world covers 120,923,200 sq ft, being one of the world’s top 4 water-parks. And even now during winter, you can still enjoy the indoor zone offering various facilities and attraction for all ages. There are not only the basic indoor swimming pool, flowing pool, but also indoor slides and kid’s playing area, and aqua pool with built-in water massage system.
Besides the various pools, you can also enjoy Korean traditional bulgama hot rooms, designed body therapy, and modern spas.

Another reason making the trip to Paradise Spa more than worthy is their fabulous caravan camping park. There are different sizes of accommodations for four or six, perfect for family or a bunch of friends. Isn’t it awesome to have some on-site outdoor barbecue after enjoying the spa of day!!
