Amazing active temple on the ocean. There is not too much to see, so only plan about 45 to walk around the area and soaking in the views.

One of only a few seaside Buddhist temples in So Korea (most of the others are all in the mountains). Really a lovely place. Lots of steps, and views from multiple directions. Well worth visiting.

A great day spent at this peaceful sight. Who would have thought to build a temple at this gulf with the backdrop of the mountains so many centuries ago? Magnificent!

We loved our visit to this temple. The steps leading from the temple are quite narrow and steep, so easier to take small children in carrier than a stroller. There’s a lot of beautiful buildings and a wonderful view of the sea. Take you time...More

Certainly the most beautiful in Korea. A lovely attraction to enjoy. Many scenic shots to capture the moments. Do expect crowds and take precautions on the steep stairs. It a little long way off but it presents an excuse to visit the Premium Outlet nearby.

The bus 181 takes you there. If you do not have a bus stop with that number take 100 - 101 or any other bus which can take to the stop. Once you reach to the place one must walk about a mile to get to the entrance of the... More

I'd also recommend the City Bus has 3 or 4 routes and take you to many spots along the way - hop on hop off. It's about 12,000 wan for the day ticket.

Thank you to all the forum members who gave valuable inputs in planning my trip to Korea. Just got back, and would like to share our itinerary, for the benefit of future travelers. We were in Korea for 12 full days, a group of 8 pax including 3 kids. The purpose of our trip was sightseeing, not so much 'relaxing'. Those traveling in smaller groups & without kids can certainly see more places in the same time frame. Haven't posted any driver recommendations here, but if you'd like...More
