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.

Customer Reviews

3 star rating: Worth doing November 2013

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

3 star rating: Worth doing August 2013

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.
