Chuseok Trip 1 - 태종대

3 October 2007 @ Taejongdae [태종대]

This plan was supposed to be on the first day of the Chuseok holidays, but it was postponed due to heavy rain and strong winds. Once again, on this wonderful public holiday of National Foundation Day in Korea, a gigantic group of international students gathered to visit the beautiful
Taejongdae.

Taejongdae is a huge natural park with magnificent cliffs facing the open sea on the island of Yeongdo. When the sky is clear, visitors can see a few islands from Taejongdae, one of them is the Daema Island of Japan.

This time, our group were made up of 22 people!! There are 4 Germans [Tabea, Ilka, Eva, Sebastian], 1 Indonesian [Liliana], 2 Mongolians [Miki, Bayalag], 3 Chinese [Cherry, Lulu, MeiXiang] and 12 Malaysians. Whoa!

After visiting Taejongdae, I was feeling a little uneasy and decided to go back to my dorm with ChunWei and SuHan. The rest continue their journey to the Yongdusan Park after having their dinner at Nampodong. The main objective of going to the park is to go up to the Busan Tower to enjoy the sensational night view.

Night viewzzz...




It was another long and tiring journey. Too bad I didn't get a chance to go up to the tower. Nevertheless, I still can enjoy the sceneries from the photos taken by our professional photographer, Mr. Hofun. Hehe.. Billy, out.
