I have been to Daewangam Park for my cultural trip with the school when I did my language course. That day, the weather was superb! Thus, photos turned out to be really nice on a good weather. However, during this trip, it was raining the whole rain. The rain did not stop us from exploring Ulsan!

After visiting all these places in Ulsan, we headed to Ulsan station and took KTX train to return to Seoul. Although I have been to some of the places before, but it was really a memorable trip going with the Wow Korea Supporters and of course, our beloved managers who took so good care of us during the trip. That was the end of Busan – Ulsan 3D2N trip! I am already looking forward to our next Wow Korea Supporter field trip.
