SOUTH KOREA

• There is a lit­tle some­thing for ev­ery­one in Alpen­sia Pyeongchang Re­sort nes­tled within the calm Tae­baek Moun­tains in Gang­won-do, South Korea. Alpen­sia is a port­man­teau of Alpen, the Ger­man word for Alps, Asia, and Fan­ta­sia; to­gether it forms the vibe of re­sort: the fan­tas­tic Alps of Asia. A mere two hours away from Seoul, you can find cross-coun­try ski slopes, a ski jump tower, and biathlon fa­cil­i­ties, a sport com­bi­na­tion of ski­ing and ri­fle shoot­ing. Other fea­tures in­clude a 45-hole golf course, a sky lounge, a re­tail strip, a water­park, a sheep ranch, a con­ven­tion centre, the Daeg­wal­lyeong Ski His­tory Mu­seum, and the pic­turesque Odae­san Moun­tain.

The In­ter­con­ti­nen­tal Alpen­sia Pyeongchang Re­sort is your best bet when it comes to tem­po­rary respite – it seam­lessly blends com­fort and in­te­ri­ors for a truly won­der­ful stay.

Be­cause of its largely un­touched scenic views and weather con­di­tions, this Alpine-style vil­lage will host the Pyeongchang 2018 Win­ter Olympic Games from 9 Fe­bru­ary to 25 Fe­bru­ary 2018. www.alpen­siare­sort.co.kr
