My Korean friend drove the car and took me to Naksansa (낙산사)... Its been on my bucketlist forever and I'm glad to cross it off my list!

The fee for the entrance to the temple is ₩3,000. The temple itself is very big and took my friend and I 2 hours to walk the entirety!

Naksansa is very famous for the fire that had occurred not too long ago: It's famous in the sense that everything else burned to the ground but the pavilions and building that housed yhe buddha did not burn at all (I am very superstitious and I am Buddhist so this made me believe even more that there is indeed another force above us, looking over us).

Another thing Naksansa is famous for it the big gwangyin (观世音菩萨) statue in the middle of a plaza. The plaza itself can see the ocean and it is surrounded by beautiful and surreal sceneries.

After Naksansa, We continued out journey towards the east~
We visited the traditional market in Sokcho! This is my second time here but being with a native Korean is really different. She introduced me to lot of different things as well as the things people come to this market for: the chicken with a special sauce.

We visited the infamous filming site for Goblin (도깨비) in Jumunjin! Another place crossed off the list!

But an important question comes to mind: Where is 도깨비?

Jokes aside: this place really have huge waves! I have never seen waves this huge in Korea! Its definitely worth the visit!
