Sneak Peak: Inside the Pyeongchang Winter Olympics Village

With under a month to go before the opening of the 2018 Winter Olympics in Pyeongchang, South Korea, the Olympic village and all its facilities seem to be all ready to go! Which is a huge improvement from previous years…

The apartments are basic, clean, and appear to be fully functional – and thankfully don’t seem to be in the same state as the Rio village back in the 2016 Olympics, where teams called it ‘uninhabitable’, having problems with plumbing, electricity, gas and cleanliness, forcing them to move to nearby hotels. Talk about horrific!

Well, the Olympic village in Pyeongchang seems to have raised the bar higher this year.

Let us take you through a little tour of the village below:

The village has been built right next door to the Pyeongchang Olympic Stadium, and consists of eight 15-story buildings.

The village is fully equipped with dining and laundry facilities, as well as a convenience store, bank, post office and, of course, a recreation centre for all athletes.

The rooms are simple and modern, and seem to have a high standard of cleanliness. Perfect for a three week-stay for the Olympic Athletes!

Most of the rooms appear to have balconies, if they’re lucky athletes may get a good view of the Olympic stadium next door.

All beds have comforters with the Pyeonchang Winter Olympics logo stitched into them. Wonder if the athletes get to take these home as a souvenir?

The bathrooms are basic and modern, at least it doesn’t look like its leaking!

The kitchen is also modern-looking and quite spacious. Looks a lot better than what the athletes had at the Rio Olympics!
