Alpaca World in Gangwon-do, South Korea

I found this place from Jaslin Puasa during his last trip to South Korea, I thought I should blog about it as I feel it will be a great place to visit when you are coming here. So, I am going to share some tips for you guys to ease your travel.
1. Good walking shoes is a must because Alpaca World is 110,000 square feet making it the largest forest experience farm in Korea.
2. Alpaca food can be bought at vending machines that is conveniently located around the farm.
3. You need to purchase the "Pacacoin" at the ticket office in order to buy the Alpaca food. Each coin is worth ₩1,000.
4. Bring lotsa cash as the vending machines accept only cash.
5. There are indoor and outdoor activities, incase of rain just run indoor.
6. Do ride on the safari train around the hillside. It takes a brief stop for you to take close-up photos with the alpacas.
7. Aside from alpacas, the farm animals such as rabbits, deer, duck. eagles, peacock, pony and etc are available for guest.
8. There is also a colouring land for kids. Head there for some kids’ activity time.
9. Don’t worry about food as there’s food court available near the Alpaca walks and an Alpaca Cafe located near the ticketing office.
9. Souvenirs can be purchase at the Alpaca World at its Art Shop gift shop. Get the soft toy Alpaca!
10. Best time to go is Spring and Autumn. Having said that, Alpaca World operates whole year round except during Lunar New Year's Day and Korea Thanks giving Day. Obviously!
Herd animal such as Alpacas are usually inhibiting high mountain areas of Peru, Bolivia and Chile. You can see them in group of 20 at an altitude of 3,500 to 5,000 meters. Alpacas have a natural life span of 15–20 years and their diet are mostly grass, but occasionally leaves wood, bark or stems.
Fun fact : Many do not know that Alpacas are also known for being a therapy animals that can help people with traumatic experiences. Interesting huh!
