As we were content just chilling in our hotel, we didn’t do much sightseeing in town. Yeonggeumjeong Pavilion is just a typical pavilion but its location at the end of a pier makes it a good spot to enjoy the ocean view. Sokcho Lighthouse nearby has a slightly better vantage point if you are willing to walk up some steps.

When I was at the observatory of Sokcho Lighthouse Observatory, I saw this pavilion along the coastline, protruding from the pier. As such, I visited this pavilion on my way back to my hotel. It was near sunset, the view was peaceful and nice. I suppose it is best to come here for sunrise, as its name implies.

I visited this attraction in end October. Good to check out the sunrise timing in Sokcho before planning your visit here. If you are coming in autumn, good to reach here by 6.30am latest so that you get a good standing space to catch sunrise, before hordes of tourists coming in tour buses reach the pavilion. There are two pavilions in this area, one perched on the top of a rock surface, while the other stretching out a few metres into the sea. Either are great for catching sunrise. Alternatively, if it gets too crowded, head to the right side of the pavilions, beside the port and small eating places; there is a short walking path. While there are fishing boats in the distance, you'll still catch a magnificent view of the sun coming out from the horizon. A great place to visit in the early morning, especially if you stay near the inter-city bus terminal.

Two pavilions facing East Sea of Korea. A great view and worthy of visit. - One is connected to the path that has a pretty good illuminations in the evening. - The other one is on the rocks to look down. - Yeonggeumjeong had been existed as a rocky area since long ago. But, destroyed in 20th century. Pavilions look traditional. But, they have been built lately for tourists. - Better during sunrise or sunset. - The guiding light is close and also popular touristic spot in Sokcho. Good to come by together.

There are two pavilions in this area, the Sunrise pavilion over the ocean and the Observatory Pavilion on a small rocky headland. The Sunrise Pavilion is at the end of a 50 m walkway that stretches over the sea, and as the name suggests it is a good place to catch the sunrise, and an even better place to catch the breeze fro the sea on a warm day.
