Saturday I took a trip to a southern province, via high-speed train, to view fall leaves and tour a Buddhist temple. I already posted a few pics, but here are some more.
The temple is called Naejangsa, and it is located in Jeong-eup city in Jeollabuk-do province.
There were hordes of people there, transported mainly by tour buses. I am guesstimating that several tens of thousands of people visited the site on Saturday. We managed to get off on our own for a bit though.
As you can see in the pics, there is a blend of tourism (and businessnes catering to the tourists) and nature, along with a dose of religion.
The weather was great--sunny and cool--and made for a very enjoyable day, though it was a long day trip from the Seoul area (left 7am/returned 11:30pm).
