Destination: Wonpyeong Beach / Bigeumdo (Shihan country, Jeollanam-do)

To put it mildly, Wonpyeong Beach (원평해수욕장) is off the beaten path. Bigeum-do is 54.5 kilometers (about 34 miles) from the mainland of Dae Han Min Guk. Of the 827 islands that dot the shores of Shinan county in Jeollanam-do, Bigeum-do is the seventh-largest. It hearkens back to a time before foreigners taught English in Korea and the locals viewed foreign tourists as curiosities. If you've ever needed that 'far off island getaway' during your stay in Korea - but had to be back to work on Monday - this may be the place.

Pancake breakfast and hike to Chungyulsa

Sunday, May 30, 2010 - 10:00

Pancake Breakfast /Hike to Chungyulsa : May 30, 10am-1pm (We've had to delay it from the 23rd many places are forecasting rain for Sunday). Please RSVP so we can make sure there is enough for all to eat :)  Our location is near Myun-nyun-dong subway station/Dongnae area.

We'll have a pancake breakfast with blueberry syrup, hash browns/eggs/veggies with Cajun seasoning, juice, etc. at 10am that will for sure fill you up (basically all you can eat within reason) for our scenic hike to Chungyulsa Shrine stopping along the way a couple times to enjoy the nice views of Busan, see a small park with demonstrations of ancient Korean scientific innovations and end at Chungyulsa which is one of the most interesting memorials in Busan Along the way is also one of the best rock climbing walls I've seen in Busan (see it here here: It's free, but climbing shoes are required.)
