#TrazyMemories: Jade Garden + Alpaca World

My top highlight of my #AutumnInKorea was the visit in Alpaca World followed by a coffee break at Santorini Café, and an afternoon walk at Jade Garden. These places are not the usual go-to places when someone is going to South Korea that’s why I opted for this tour offered by Trazy – less crowd and definitely, a relaxing activity that I always look forward in a vacation. Though, this tour is only offered every Wednesday and Fridays until further notice so I guess, grab the opportunity to have this once in a lifetime experience, book your tour here.

Welcome to Aplaca World!


We had an early call-time (8:00AM) and gladly, that the meeting place was just a minute-walk away from the guesthouse we’re staying in Myeongdong. Technically, just across the street where the Daiso building is located. Our tour guide, Dabin was very approachable, helpful and informative as well throughout the day. It’s always a plus to have a cheerful and energetic guide – it makes the trip more delightful and fun. Kudos, Trazy Crew!

Meanwhile, the Jade Garden + Alpaca World 1 Day Tour was priced at ₱2,817 (₩64,000) per person which is already a discounted price given that Alpaca World is about 1.5 hours away from Myeongdong. It already includes roundtrip transportation, entrance fees and 1 drink at Santorini Café which cost up to ₩6,500. Well, it was a nature-filled getaway with a relaxing panoramic view of Chuncheon, South Korea. 




    Alpaca World


    Our first stop was the Alpaca World. Literally and figuratively, we had a close encounter with different kind of animals from birds, owls, deer, ponies, rabbits and finally, with the alpacas. I was able to walked and fed the adorable alpacas. They’re so cute and fluffy! We were given a card that needed to be stamped at 10 stations, if completed you’ll get a reward – an alpaca stickers perfect for scrapbooks any anything artsy and crafty. The farm is quite an uphill so be ready, though the area were nested with trees so there’s nothing to worry about! For me, the best time to visit is Autumn and Spring maybe so that the weather is cooler.

    We spent almost 2.5 hours exploring the farm and had a great time with the alpacas. Though, if you like to feed and walk with the alpacas, there’s an additional payment of ₩10,000 per group (we were 5 in the group so we paid ₩2,000 each) and lasted for 15 minutes. It was a great experience so I would recommend that you should try it, too. 😊 We also had our lunch in Alpaca Farm, we ordered the pizza and it tasted delicious – they have 2 flavors which we had since we were a group of 5; each cost around ₩11,000 - ₩13,000.  After lunch, we headed back to our meeting place, exchanged the stamped card with an alpaca stickers at souvenirs shop and moved on to our next destination – Santorini Café.

    Santorini Café


    Per Dabin, our tour guide, Santorini Café is the best café in the street of Chuncheon with an astounding panoramic view of Gubongsan Mountain. I must say, it’s a perfect place to hang out, relax and just enjoy my coffee after a long day while having a wonderful view in the backdrop. We had free coffee which we already pre-ordered as soon as we hopped in the bus for day’s tour. It’s also a perfect place to do photoshoot as every corner is picturesque and Instagram-worthy. And did you notice that I repeatedly says “perfect” well it really is. It also came to my knowledge that, Santorini Café host wedding ceremony and reception. So yeah, you might consider this on your big day, it is highly recommendable to include on your itinerary. Chill and relax ambiance.

    Jade Garden


    Literally, save the best for last! Jade Garden is a European-themed botanical garden. Also, a k-drama “That Winter, the Wind Blows” was taken. Upon entering, I was at awed seeing its beautiful landscape and colorful plants. Definitely, autumn season stole my heart. I was mesmerized with all the colorful beauty presented on my very eyes that I couldn’t stop wondering and goofing around with in-between camera clicks from here and there. Make sure that your camera’s battery are full and even your mobile as everything is worth capturing for keepsakes.
