Hello Again Everyone!!

Silleuksa Temple is located in Yeoju, Gyeonggi-do. The name of the temple means “Divine Bridle Temple,” in English, and it has to do with a legend that surrounds the temple. The name of the temple relates to a horse that was uncontrollable. The horse was reined in by the power of the Buddha.

It’s 07:30 and my alarm is chirping away at me. Time to drag myself out of bed, eat breakfast in a hurry, shower and go to school. Just another work-day. But, wait! It’s Saturday, why am I up at this unwelcoming hour? That’s right, you’ve decided to spend the Chuseok public holiday cycling across a whole country…

Destination: Hwanghaksan Arboretum / Forest Therapy Place (Yeoju)

Destination: Sejong's tomb (세종대왕릉) (Yeoju)



With a little help, the tomb of Korea's greatest leader could rise to become a great tourist destination. Most of the pieces are already here - good English explanations, interesting things to see - but one issue makes the place less than tourist-friendly.
