[Travel Diary] buzz KOREA Tour: Sancheong-Busan, October 4-6, 2013

Last August I came across buzz KOREA‘s Facebook page and their website, and read about the Hot Summer & Hot Event that they had and the prize was a FREE trip to Sancheong and Busan on October 4-6, 2013 to people residing in Korea or was planning to visit Korea on those dates. As I had booked my flight last year to Busan from Manila and really was planning to attend the Busan International Film Festival 2013, I joined the contest and luckily I won. 🙂 I was very thankful because my travel buddy backed out because of work and I had to travel alone, and it was my birthday on October 6 and I didn’t want to be alone in Busan (as my friends are based in Seoul).

Here is a short video made by buzz KOREA of the entire tour! Enjoy 🙂
