We took a taxi because we had read that it is a long walk from the Metro.

You must first resist the temptation to stop at every souvenir stand and all those food stalls selling grilled cuttlefish, fried foods, sweets, fruity drinks and other snacks. Save all that for after your trek down to the temple.

The next section that you pass has large human-like statues of the Asian Zodiac animals. Then you will walk uneven, sometimes steep steps downwards toward the sea and the temple.

There are a few locations where you can take some great photos.

Workers were setting up scaffolding when we visited in mid May. Many tours arrived at the same time we did. The temples are nice. If you want to do more walking, you can climb up even higher but the views are not much better. For us, the highlight was finding miniature sets of clay figurines of monks in the little nooks along the cliff.

This temple was very busy on a Sunday afternoon but definitely worth the drive out. Will go there again at a different time.

The temple located on Haeundae beach. Very beautiful temple on the seaside of Haeundae. So many beautiful photo spots from here.

Going to the temple, you will meet some stalls selling foods and drinks. You can find apple size watermelon and they will make juice then put it back inside the watermelon.

Nearby there is also lotte mall with the premium factory outlet

This place closes at 7pm. If you are a photographer, you might want to be there for the sun set. Other than that, it has they typical oriental architectural design.

A nice temple by the sea with a view. The walk to reach the temple could be challenging for old folks and young kids as there are lots of uneven steps. Other than that, it is a pleasant place to walk around and take in the peaceful surrounding.
