OSunmoonlake is one of the top tourist attractions for visitors.  In fact, I have never stayed in the Sunmoonlake (SML) region.  This time, I planned for a 2D1N stay in Sunmoonlake. There are many minsu or hotels in the SML region.  After much consideration, I decided to choose a new minsu called ‘Love to stick […]
