Samgye-tang or ginseng chicken soup, meaning ginseng – chicken – soup in Korean, consists primarily of a whole young chicken – filled with garlic, rice, jujube, and ginseng. It is a must eat food when you visit Korea. We went to Myeongdong Dakhanmari. The restaurant uses fresh young chickens and minimal seasoning to allow diners to fully enjoy the tenderness of the meat. Overall, I think that the marinade sauce was the key to enhance the depth of flavor and taste better.

KTX-III was intended to cut Seoul-Busan travel times to 1 hour 50 minutes with a maximum operating speed of 350 km/h (217 mph). We bought Korea Rail 2 Day Flexi Pass/Korail Pass from Seoul to Busan (slighty cheaper as compared to normal tickets). On the other hand, TRAIN TO BUSAN also the name of a harrowing zombie horror-thriller movie. It is the eighth-highest-grossing domestic film of all time in South Korea. We actually watch this movie during my Cambodia Trip during 2016.
