Health is the keyword of the year. In Korea, people seek out places where they can heal mentally and physically in nature. From hiking, a national pastime, to a museum tour and a Korean Medicine village – these travel ideas are sure to resonate with the health conscious.
Located 275 meters above sea level, Museum SAN gets its name from space, art, and nature. This stunning architecture was designed by the renowned Tadao Ando and includes both indoor and outdoor exhibitions. Nestled deep in the mountain, the museum is more than just an art space. Soo-yeon experiences for herself how art can meet nature at Museum SAN.
Thanks to the mountainous terrain, Korea is serious about hiking. Foreign visitors are often surprised by the mountains, either seen from afar or explored on foot. Daedunsan Mountain in Wanju boasts steep rocky cliffs that make up a stunning view; hence, its reputation as the Geumgangsan of the Honam region. It’s also famous for its adrenaline-pumping bridges that are not for the faint-hearted. Follow Prescott as he braves the precipices of Daedunsan Mountain.
Jecheon’s hidden attraction, the Uirimji Reservoir is an irrigation system that was built during the Samhan period. A leisurely stroll along a pine-scented trail will lead you to a bridge that cuts across the reservoir and the beautiful Yongchu Falls. Unlike other waterfalls, Yongchu Falls can be observed from above. At night the reservoir offers another scenic view that cannot be enjoyed during the day. Enjoy the B.T.S. moments of the Uirimji Reservoir.
