Silversea Luxury Cruises À Yeosu

Silversea Luxury Cruises - Yeosu, South Korea

As South Korea becomes increasingly popular as a tourist destination, Yeosu remains a hidden gem. Punctuated by cliffs, islands and peninsulas the Scenic shorelines are nothing short of spectacular. Host to the EXPO 2012 World Fair meant that Yeosu received generous government funding in order to develop its waterfront and the exhibition centre still stands. This is worth exploring if you want to learn what South Korea is doing to preserve its waters and what we can do to help. View more

The butterfly-shaped peninsula is known for its succulent seafood and, in spring, camellia blossoms abound. Set in the very south of the country, the city is split in two by a mountain, and the two sides are connected by a narrow, keyhole-shaped tunnel. Enjoy the dichotomy of travelling from the modern west side to the stillness and peace of the Manseongri Black Sand Beach in the traditional east. There is a multitude of islands dotting the coast of Yeosu. For those wanting to see it all, ferry buses offer scenic boat trips so that you can island hop and spend as long or as little as you like in each place. However, if time doesn’t permit, a short taxi ride (or long walk) to either Odongdo or Dolsan via a man-made causeway is the best bet. Additionally, if you are feeling sporty, why not walk to the top of the rather mild hill, and be greeted with beautiful 360 views of the surrounding area. Because of its coastal location, fish lovers will be in their element here. Raw fish is a delicacy in all of coastal South Korea, though standard Korean fare, such as kimchi stew and pork loin soup is well worth a try if you are feeling adventurous. For those who want an authentic Korean dining experience, traditional Korean food include the famous ganjang gejang (raw crabs marinated in soya sauce) as well as other variants like the yangnyeom gejang (raw crabs marinated in spicy sauce).

Tea Cerimony in UNESCO World Heritage Temple

Depart the pier for the approximate one hour drive to the Seonamsa Temple. It is located at the west end of Mt. Jogyesan. A walk of approximately 1 km takes you from the entrance to the temple. If you go along the valley, two rainbow shaped bridges appear; the large one at the back is Seungseon Bridge. Seungseon Bridge and is thought to be one of Korea's most admired stone bridges because it blends in so well with the valley below.

Legend states that in 529, the missionary monk Ado built a hermitage at this site on the eastern slope of Jogyesan and named it Biroam. 350 years later in 861, Doseon constructed a grand temple here and named it Seonamsa. As the head temple of the samamsa trio ("three 'rock' temples") with Unamsa and Yongamsa, Seonamsa played a fundamental role in the development of Seon Buddhism, and many masters have practiced, taught and attained awakening here. During the -Japanese invasions of Korea (159298), many of Seonamsa's buildings were destroyed, along with much of the country. Restoration came after the war, and a new plan to restore the temple to the original 11th century configuration has been underway since 1992. About 1 kilometre (0.62 mi) from the entrance towards the main temple grounds, two rainbow-shaped bridges appear; the second-larger one being Seungseon Bridge. Just beyond Seungseon Bridge is Gangseon Pavilion. Past the pavilion, the small oval-shape pond called Samindang comes into site. Inside the pond is a small islet with an evergreen, creating an attractive setting. Going further on the Ilju Gate appears, beyond which the various temple buildings emerge. The large timbers of the main temple buildings are impressive, blending elegantly with the surrounding Jogye mountains and harmonizing with the nature surrounding them. Sunamsa is also known for its traditional wild teas, which are grown nearby.


Gangseonru Tower

Just beyond Seungseon Bridge is Gangseonru Tower, a fitting pair to the bridge before it. Walk by the tower and you will come across a small oval-shaped pond called Samindang. There is a small isle inside the pond, and an evergreen on the isle makes for great scenery. Go further and Ilju Gate appears. The big timber blocks of the temple buildings are impressive, and they blend in elegantly with the surrounding mountains. The hiking course on the left of Seonamsa Temple takes you to Ma-aebuli, the 7m high sculpture engraved on a rock.


Tea Ceremony Experience

The Korean tea ceremony is a traditional form of tea ceremony practiced in Korea. Darye literally refers to "etiquette for tea" or "tea rite" and has been kept among Korean people for over a thousand years. The chief element of the Korean tea ceremony is the ease and naturalness of enjoying tea within an easy formal setting.

Tea ceremonies are now being revived in Korea as a way to relax and find harmony in the fast-paced new Korean culture, and continuing in the long tradition of intangible Korean art.
