We travelled by coach to another of Hyundai’s factory complexes for a demonstration of construction equipment, with machines across the full range being operated to and beyond there capabilities. After this we continued on up the country to the Millennium Hotel in Seoul where we were to stay for the remainder of our tour.1
Free time, and a choice of destinations to go to, we all visited Minsok Village in Yongin, a museum displaying elements of traditional Korean life and culture, this was followed by a performance of Mi-So an original Korean musical very similar to Romeo & Juliet.
Onto a restaurant to experience true South Korean cuisine, it was at this stage we established why there are no overweight Korean’s.
Once again free time, after a BBQ at a local restaurant we had a choice, ours was the dizzy heights of Seoul tower and the exceptional views over this vibrant city from the observation platforms.
In the evening we had our leaving party, all week we had been pestered by our tour guide Cindy to do a performance of “Gangnam Style” with one of the other dealer staff as our front man; this evening was the point of no return. As a team we took the stage, and as a team we dominated over the rest of Europe, good old Blighty wins again.
We leave South Korea sleep derivated, and probably with our livers a little worse for wear, however, an experience that I am sure I speak for us all, would not change for the world. An amazing insight into the manufacturing process of Hyundai Heavy Industries along with a brief glimpse of the South Korean hospitality and way of life.
