Guinsa Temple

Reviewed By thelonious22 - Seongnam

While most Korean temple structures are not multi-levels, many of the structures here were three or four floors high which looked cool from a distance but looked just like any modern building up close. It was a very steep uphill walk for about two kilometers to get to the main structure, Daejo-sajeon (which houses the golden image of Guinsa’s patriarchical figure Sangwol Wongak) but there are couple of gates and numerous structures and pagodas on the way to check out. While a unique complex, it was not one of the more scenic Korean temples.

Gosu Cave

Reviewed By thelonious22 - Seongnam

The eleven dollar admission is a bit steep, but the steel walkway that that guides visitors for the two kilometer walk inside the cave system was pretty impressive and probably where lot of the admission money went. The cave system naturally insulated heat and it was actually about ten degrees warmer inside the cave (outside was around 0 degree). The walkways were extremely narrow and there were lot of spots where you have to watch your head. Luckily, this was low season and the walkways weren’t clogged with tourists. Visiting during busy season would not be good for people with claustrophobia. Everyone has to walk through a small museum with information about the cave system and there are explanations in English every 100 meters or so.

Danuri Aquarium

Reviewed By HelenaGuerra - Washington DC, District of Columbia

Our bus from Seoul (east Seoul bus terminal) dropped us off right next to the aquarium which ended up being very convenient. We found free lockers, bathrooms and a tourist info counter that gave us the schedule for guinsa temple buses. We didn't visit the aquarium, but I thought this would be useful info. So here it is.

Dodamsambong Peaks

Reviewed By thelonious22 - Seongnam

A picturesque rock formation sticking out of the Namhan River. About three kilometers outside of the town center, it is a comfortable 30 minute walk with wide pedestrian path leading to it. It’s one of those seen-in-done-it sights but definitely worth checking out for its postcard image.

Danyang Ondal Cave

Reviewed By JH L - Seoul, South Korea

This is the cave in Ondal Gwangwangji(Tourist Site). It was awesome ponds and stalactites.
- Accessible by the bus from Danyang-eup(the center of Danyang-gun). The last stop is Guinsa Temple.
- Locating in the Ondal Tourist Site, it is accessible after paying the admission. No additional fee to enter the cave.
- 1~2 hour is enough to watch properly.
- This cave has much water and there are nice ponds.
- Many stalactites with own names. Pretty good to imagine.
- Some points are narrow and a helmet is mandatory. Not recommended for very old people.

Aqua World

Reviewed By new88 - Singapore

A nice place to visit in autumn or winter. Visited here as part of a group tour itinerary. As such, time were restricted. They have various facilities here, such as indoor bench jet, hydro jet, massage spa and foot bath and outdoor and outdoor hot natural spring pools. It is a wonderful experience here after spending a few hours here. Felt more energised and relaxed after visiting the spa and water jet here. The place is spacious and not so congested during our visit.

Mancheonha Skywalk

Reviewed By JH L - Seoul, South Korea

This is the magnificent Observatory built on the mountain which provides 360 degree view and sky walking. Running since July, 2017.
How to get there
- The traffic near the facility is really heavy. Getting off the bus at Danyang Tourists Hotel and walk along the cliff path(느림보강물길) is recommended.
Costs
- Since this facility is operated by the public office of Danyang-gun, the fee is surprisingly cheap. Only 2,000 won including shuttle. And there's discount upon conditions.
How to enjoy
- After purchasing the ticket, the free shuttle sends the people to the top of the mountain and it's easy spiral walking from that on.
- The bottom of the top floor consists of glasses and steel grid parts. People can get thrilled seeing below and forward.
Others
- Zipwire(zipline) is also available with separated charge. Not cheap. Discount is also available depending on conditions. And they are preparing some more attractions to run according to the website.

Cheondong Cave

Reviewed By Andrew H - South Korea

A small cave at the end of the track to the soenaeksan mountain park (one of them anyway). However, it size does not take away from the beuatiful formations (sadly some are damaged).
You need to be able to get wuite low and to pass a few thin bits, but any one who is ordinarily active should not find any problem. The route through the cave is all on stainless steel platforms whcih can be a bit slippery, but makes it easier to get around. Be prepared for a lot of steps!!!

Danyang Market

Reviewed By JH L - Seoul, South Korea

This traditional market is located in Danyang-eup(district of Danyang-gun) and very famous for foodies.
There are some fine eats with garlics which are the best products of Danyang-gun. That's the main reason tourists wish to visit. And local people come to buy some farmer's products as well.
The marketplace is not that big. 15~30 min walk from corner to corner.

Sainam Rock

Reviewed By RlfDinky - Roubaix, France

If you want to go, you have to take a local bus in front of the bus station of Danyang. A bus every hour ( but not regular ask the time table to the tourist information center). The bus stops you on the road and after 10 minutes on an easy platform you arrive on the temple. The rock is really particular ( like an old scottish castle) and you can visit a small temple if you decide to climb . If you want to do a bigger tour you can still continue until the top of the mountain ( but be careful) . Around the river in the week end you can the corean people making camping and swimming. If you arrive before 5 pm you will have some Buddhist songs . There is some restaurants and coffee shops if you want to rest. Not so easy to catch the bus for coming back. Don t stay on the curve, Do 100 meters so the bus driver can see you . You need at least 3 hours if you are dependent with the local bus.
