... so they are all very comfortable around people and will come up to you looking for food. It's was sort of strange seeing a massive crowd of people wandering around and the deer just standing in the middle of the pathways not bothered by being petted. The deer were probably only half the size of our deer at home. Once they kicked us out of the temple after it closed we wandered up to some of the deer to take pictures. There was one bigger buck there who was trying to ...

This is usually not a big problem but with Incheon being a huge airport it could be close. We had to get off the plane, take the train to the main terminal and then get trough immigration and customs and to the bus stop.
