    "Sophia,

    We have returned home and we are going through our many pictures (around 700). We had a wonderful visit to your beautiful country and I must say that working with you and the tour guides made it even more special. When we return to that side of the world, we will be contacting you again. We still need to come to Guilin and see the beautiful sights that you see every day.

    Angela was great. She is a pleasant and pretty young lady and she knows so much about the sights in Chengdu. My son really liked talking to her.

    Peter was very good but his English can use some improvement. He was extremely patient with us and accommodated our needs wonderfully.

    May was also very good and professional. It is obvious she knows her subject and she is a great sales person.

    I look forward to using your services again. Thank you for everything and thank you for the gift. It is hanging on the wall in my home. I think of you every time I see it.

    Sincerely,

    Andersen "

    Chuncheon, city surrounded by water
    [Introduction to Chuncheon]

    The provincial capital city of Gangwon-do Province is nestled in the heart of the famous tourist city of Chuncheon. This city is tucked away in a basin with Uiamho Lake to the west, Chuncheonho Lake and Soyangho Lake to the north, and Sinyeongang River to the south making this a city surrounded by water. The numerous lakes in the region cause many foggy days. Close proximity to Seoul makes this a popular daytrip destination. 
    This popular riverside tourist destination has many places to visit, including Namiseom, Jungdo Island, Cheongpyeongsa Temple, Gongjicheon area, Wido Island, Soyanggang River, Samaksan Mountain, Deongseon Waterfall, Gugok Waterfall, Jipdarigol Natural Forest, and Chuncheon Hunting Camp. Looking at the topography of Chuncheon, one can clearly tell that it is a lakeside city, with Wido, Namiseom, and Uiam Islands near the center. As a result, aquatic sports are very popular. There are regular ferries at Soyangho, Uiam, and Chuncheon Lakes; many people enjoy fishing in these areas. Famous foods in Chuncheon include makguksu and dakgalbi. 
    Festivals in the region include the Snow and Ice Festival, Chuncheon International Mime Festival, Chuncheon Anitown Festival, Chuncheon Makguksu Festival, MBC Riverside Song Festival, Chuncheon Puppet Festival and Chuncheon International Theatre Festival. Chuncheon also hosts the Chuncheon International Marathon and the Korea Open Chuncheon International Taekwondo Championship.
