Yongma Land, a small abandoned and dilapidated amusement park near Mangu Station, has been on my must-visit list for a while. I finally made it there this week, and it was worth the wait! Continue reading “Yongma Land”
After Nami Island, the shuttle bus took us to Petite France, a teensy amusement park that is supposed to be a sort of French village slash homage to Le Petite Prince. It was cute, but there’s not a whole lot to it.
On a sunny but cold Monday, Mom and I took a shuttle bus to Nami Island and Petite France. It was great to go back to Nami Island with my mom, and we were lucky to find the place fairly uncrowded.

After a tasty breakfast in Ugyen’s kitchen, we left the farmhouse and spent a little time walking down the street of the small nearby town, enjoying some of the shop signs. We also stopped and bought some chocolate as I was all out (the horror!). As we started on the road to Paro, we stopped for some great photos of Haa Valley.
