    Seoul Sports & Outdoors

    High1 is the best winter resort I've seen in Korea. A brand new resort, '08 is their first full season of winter operations. A multitude of slopes and lifts, and their terrain actually has real snow instead of the typical man-made crap most of the other resorts here offer. They run 5 chairlifts (4/6 person) and 3 gondolas (8 person). I think a...

    If you want to watch a baseball game, go to the Jamsil Baseball stadium and you can watch either the LG Twins or the Doosan Bears. Both of these teams call this stadium home. Tickets are really cheap.. about 6,000 Won and fans really get into it. One difference from Major League baseball is that there are Cheerleaders at Korean baseball games.

    There are a few skate parks in Seoul. One is at Yongsan Garrison, but you need to be US military (or a guest) to go there. Another is in Hangang Park near Yeouido Park (but it is closed in the summer, I think, as the area is usually a massive swimming/wading pool in the hot months) and another is in Hangang Park near World Cup Stadium (but it is...

    Seoul Sports & Outdoors

    Hiking is definetly a favorite Korean passtime, and it's something that everyone should endulge in at least once while in Korea.

  • Golfing In Korea

    There are 3 places to hit balls in Korea:1. One of the many driving ranges--you'll know them from the green netting. Balls are a bit more expensive than you amay be used to, and some of them are on 2 or 3 tiers so the feel is a little different from hitting one into a field, but at least they are located within the city.2.

    Maybe swimming pools seem too mundane to you. And the ocean is too far away. A water park is a good alternative.

There's something for every family...

  • Golf - Cheonan Sangnok Resort Golf...

    A great course. So large, which is great for Korea. However the fees are pretty steep. But they are worth it. This course is large enough, and far enough away from Seoul to be able to have a good hit. The Outer course is best because Punter golfers like me can really get into the swing of things (parden the oun). Golfers can hit the ball as far as...
