Jade Cave

What a weekend! We started Sunday by venturing out to Hwarok ( Jade) Cave with some of our dearest friends! Nestled in the mountains of Chongjiu-si, sits the “only talc mine in Korea that was developed during the Japanese colonial period in 1922”. This cave is perfect for families with little kids! With dinosaurs and rides my boys were instantly impressed! the whole path throughout the cave was flat and stroller accessible, there were light shows and fun fixtures throughout the whole thing. You can even do a boat experience, where you can kayak with your family through a small pond filled with fish! There is even an arcade inside the cave as well as a winery were you are able to purchase a variety of different flavors! It took about an hour and a half for us to venture through the cave as well as doing the boating experience. The boys were carried however they definitely would have been fine walking. After exiting the cave we picnicked in the grassy area letting the boys run and play. There are several cafes on location, offering ice cream, sandwiches, and coffee! I highly recommend the iced caramel macchiato! I am not sure as to why the photos uploaded sideways but oh well you get the gist of how much fun this place is!

Jade cave is located about an hour and half east of Camp Humphreys so long as traffic is good! It did take us longer to come home as traffic was packed.

We came home changed, and set off to our next adventure, the Osan Beer festival. This is a festival that hosts 50 different venders where you can go and try different types of beer, there is also many food venders, and face painting for the little tikes! We got some of the best ice cream I have ever had at this place! I am not a huge beer fan but it was fun tasting the different types they had to offer. My husband and I both enjoyed taking in different cultures and trying the different foods. If you get the chance, I highly suggest checking it out just for the experience.
