Day trip to Namhae

[Travel in March/April 2018]

Bringing you to one of the best scenic view in Nam Hae from Boriam Temple, Geumsan Mountain. From Boriam Temple, we will get a panorama view of Sangju silver sand beach below, which blends well with the surrounding mountains. Geumsan Mountain is one of the most significant mountain that respresent Nam Hae, which is also the reason why we choose to visit here for this day trip. Geumsan Mountain is well known for its sunrises too. Catch it if you can ๐Ÿ™‚

Most of us stayed at Sinchon, and it takes 35mins to travel from Sinchon to Nambu Bus Terminal. We took 8am bus and arrived at Nam Hae Terminal 4.5hrs later. The only stopover is at Daejeon Bus Terminal, so please take note.

Almost reaching, we were hungry and munching on tibits that Shumin bought at Nambu.

After alighting from Namhae Terminal, we decided to buy our return ticket as we worried we might not be able to get 5 tickets. And the latest available timing is 5pm, which might resulted us lesser time spend in Namhae. Our decision is to take cab to Boriam temple (at Geumsan Mountain) by 2 cabs. It’s about 30mins cab ride.

Entrance fee of 1000won, taking a real slow walk for about 45mins.
Amazing scenic view, beautiful.

We decided to have our brunch first since most of them shared kimbap at 6am… It’s one of the highlight of our Namhae trip to have our meal with a bird-eye view. You will know why soon…. read on!

German Villageย ๋…์ผ๋งˆ์„

There is a background story why there a german village built for Korean residents. Many Korean lived in Germany during the modernisation of Korea in 1960s. So this was built for them who returned from living in Germany.

We took a cab from Boriam Temple, and arrived at Kunst Lounge.

Having our coffee fix, and with the help of the cafe staff, we got on our cab.

Heading Home. 

We wanted to spend some time at Namhae more due to our time constraint we decided to come back here again. We headed over to the bus terminal and we were late by 4minutes. Our bus left without the 5 of us. So, our next plan was to take a intercity bus to Jinju Bus Terminal as there’s bus to Seoul every 30minutes ๐Ÿ™‚ So, we departed from Namhae Bus Terminal to Jinju Bus Terminal… We were told that we can get 30% refund, thank god for the nice guy to help us with it. So glad that the rest are not panic in fact, having a little fun out of it too ๐Ÿ™‚ Happy people are always luckier! ๐Ÿ™‚

After about 1.5hours we reached Jinju Bus Terminal ๐Ÿ™‚
And we were all ready to get back home. Long journey but I am really thankful everyone were very cooperative and not feeling uneasy over the missing bus ride and everything ๐Ÿ™‚
