Number One Rule When in Korea: Wear Hanbok!
19 Apr 2018IDEASBY SweetEscape

There is perhaps no other artifact that captures the richness of Korean cultural heritage as well as hanbok. The traditional attire's origins can be traced back to the ethnic origins of the Korean people - who supposedly began to wear a modern form of hanbok as early as the fourth century B.C. Pretty remarkable, right? What's more remarkable is the fact that It is the hanbok design has largely remained intact for thousands of years. Although popularly worn today on special occasions such as weddings and birthdays, there is renewed interest among modern Koreans in wearing hanbok as everyday wear, just as their ancestors once did.

Therefore, it goes without saying that when in Korea, do as the Koreans do. Whether with your nearest and dearest or alone, put your hanbok on! Check out our some of the looks you could try out when roaming around the scenic streets of Seoul!

THE LION KING: 5 Most Beautiful Savannas In The World
20 Jun 2019PLACESBY SweetEscape

At the mention of the word ‘savanna', your mind probably wanders to the vast grassy plains of Africa. But do you know that there are actually a few savannas in the world that are worthy of your attention? Even more surprising, some of the best ones are located in Indonesia, ready to be explored to your heart’s content. To celebrate the release of the new Disney's Photo-Realistic Animation THE LION KING, let's unleash our inner Simba or Nala, it’s time to roam here in our 5 picks of the most beautiful savannas in the world:

1. Real Life Lion King

Serengeti (Africa)

by Chelsey for SweetEscape in Cape Town

Said to be a major inspiration to the movie Lion King, the Serengeti which is located near Cape Town (www.sweetescape.com/en/cities/capetown) goes as far as the eye can see- and then some more. The seemingly endless grassland is located in Tanzania, Africa and is one of Africa’s most classic safari destinations. It’s the home of the Big Five, over 500 species of birds and Africa’s most well-known great wildebeest migration.

With countless tour packages available for your choosing, more and more attractions are introduced including hot air balloon, camping, walking safaris and so on. Excitement aside, nothing beats the tranquility of just sitting and waiting for sunset or admiring the landscape up close.

2. The Stunning Jewel of Sumba

Home to East Sumba’s savanna, the grassland expanse is an iconic jewel that will struck any traveler with an awe-inspiring wonder. Just a 30-minute drive from Waingapu, the open stretches of grassland gets even more dramatic with backdrop of rolling hills at one side and oceanic stretch at the other. Cue in the galloping sandalwood horses and there you have it, the best nature scene one could ever wish for.

In fact, the golden-yellow savanna and blue skies have made the screen plenty of times in the movies. It’s also a highly-requested prewedding location, all thanks to the beach that is adjacent to the meadow with the same name.

3. The Soothing Colors of Nature

Palouse, Washington (USA)

by Fredy for SweetEscape in Seattle

The Palouse is the most serene and pastoral of the seven wonders of Washington. Located in the Southeast area of the state, the grassland boasts a unique landscape that is also a designated wheat and barley plantations. As the produce matures from time to time, the Palouse changes in colors too, from lush shades of green in Spring to crispy harvest brown in summer.

The meadow is a gem that captivates the hearts of many photographers, ready to hunt for the next most picturesque memory under the sun. One thing is for sure, with such wonderful sight to see, any shot is going to be as good as it gets.

4. Savana Selo

We’re not kidding when we say some of the best savannas in the world is in Indonesia. Just check out our next contender, Savana Selo that is nicknamed after the pathway to reach it. With the majestic mount Merbabu as the backdrop, you can expect to find a few savanna spots, all with the same exotic yet carefree panorama. The beauty often stops hikers in their tracks, inviting them to take a long rest while absorbing the fresh view it has to offer.

Plenty of other mountains in Indonesia also share the same geographical feature of mountainous savannas. To name a few, there are Mount Sindoro, Mount Lawu, Mount Bromo, Mount Argopura and the list continues! So if you are yet to step foot in Africa or other foreign countries, Nusantara beckons your savanna visit anytime of the day.

5. Pretty in Pink

Nari Park, Seoul (South Korea)

by Hendry for SweetEscape in Seoul

Nothing gets more instagrammable than the stretch of lovely pink savanna in the form of one endless park. It’s one of the most visited places in Korea during autumn, the pinkish and violet grass sway dreamily like one huge fluffy carpet.

The pink sea of flowers is not the only thing that you get to enjoy, because Nari Park also houses many different other floral species that share one thing in common : extra prettiness! Just get your camera ready and prepare to experience a day of natural beauty at its finest height.
