What You Can Expect
Your two-day tour to Mt Seorak begins with pickup from your Seoul hotel. Then sit back and relax on the 3.5-hour coach trip to the foot of the mountain, where you’ll take a cable car ride to Gwonkeumsansung Fortress. From the top of the fortress, take in the mountain’s amazing scenery of forests and rocky cliffs.
Overnight: 4-star Hanwha Resort in Sokcho or similar
Day 2: Daepohang Port – Naksan Temple – Seoul (B)
After breakfast, visit the live fish market at Daepohang Port, where eel, flounder, yellowtail and gourmet seafood are sold. See the lively stalls and restaurants surrounding the fish market, selling dishes featuring the local seafood, and then head to Naksan Beach, where Naksan Temple is regarded as one of the Gwandong region’s top sights. Don’t forget your camera to capture the lovely Korean Buddhist temple’s picturesque setting on the edge of the sea, perched on the slopes of Naksan Mountain.
The drive and guide was one and the same person. We were left pretty much to guess and figure out what the various sites were about with his limited English. The hotel we stayed at was disappointing. Old and dull. Had expected Hanwha Resort! Or similar!
Breakfast was terrible. Hardly edible. Expensive tour
We would have given more stars however the hotel was definitely NOT a 4 star establishment. It was old and run-down and the carpet was stained. The A/C condensate drained onto the carpet. The Casino and Sauna were closed and the restaurant was only open for breakfast. The tour itself and our guide Mr. Oh were great.
