My own scenic driving route
Dongbaek EmbankmentWhy not visit Dongbaekhang Port, a quiet fishing village in Gijang? Commanding a vast view of the rolling East Sea, this port also features the landscape of a typical rural fishing village. It may be small in size, but it has a romantic pebble beach that features red and white twin lighthouses proudly guarding the port. As you walk around the embankment, you can feel the warmth and coziness of the seaside village. Look up to the autumn sky, and admire at the cotton candy clouds that are part of this wonderful landscape. Come and relax as you walk along the picturesque scenery of this secluded fishing village and enjoy the ocean breeze and sunshine.
Byeongsan ReservoirThe road that runs along Jwagwangcheon Stream in Jeonggwan to Byeongsan Reservoir is also a hidden and scenic driving route teeming with cherry blossoms in the spring. In addition to the fluttering cherry blossoms, this road also offers unforgettable views of the mountain terrain that stand in exquisite harmony with the open reservoir on a clear autumn day. A cool autumn breeze on your cheeks, unnamed wildflowers in full bloom, and the wooden pavilion situated at the top of the reservoir bank offer the perfect vibe for you to enjoy a lazy autumn afternoon by yourself. Don’t forget to bring a cup of hot coffee and some snacks for a more relaxing experience.
Sa-ra Esplanade ParkSa-ra Esplanade Park, a hidden little park of Gijang, is accessible to most because it is not far from the center of Gijang. The trail that stretches around the lake provides visitors with amazing and exotic views of the landscape. Meanwhile, the lake’s tranquility offers solitude amid the dense woods and surrounding scenery. Rolling out a picnic mat on the fluffy lawn under the shade of a tree will complete your playground for the day! Autumn is also the best season for reading outdoors, so let’s sit down and open up a book for some intellectual nourishment.
