Weekends in South Korea are so much fun. There are so many places to visit & loads of activities to do. You are never short of ideas. This time around we placed to planned to explore the beautiful city of Tongyeong. From Gohyeon bus terminal, we took an intercity bus to Tongyeong, the land of Sea.
There are many tourist attractions in Tongyeong. Having to spend just a day in the city, we decided to go for Mireuksan Mountain & Hallyeo Cable Car.Mt. Mireuksan is considered one of the best 100 mountains of Korea. You can easily spend a full day there hiking & sightseeing Those who are not keen on hiking, like us how could we with kids? can take up the cable car. The place offers breath -taking view of the sea & dense forest, ancient temples. The wildflowers add to the beauty of the place. It is said that in clear weather visitors can see the Tsushima Island (in Japan)
Travel Tip: Check the weather forecast for making your plans. A foggy weather or rain can ruin the whole experience.
