I usually travel by plane in summer with my family. The city I like the most is Seoul. It has many landscape and fresh air. However, I always have to come to airport before 3 hours, because I won't get on the plane if I come on time. Even if, I still like moving by plane, It is known as a fastest transportation, so I can save a lot of time.
