I am back from my Korea holiday two months ago. I do not see a need to drive in Seoul or Busan. Both of these cities are very public transport friendly.

Only place you need to drive are at Jeju island or if you going up the mountains.

But most travellers stick to the normal POI. So really no need to drive in the city at all.

Hi Adrianli,

 

Yes, you are right it is actually very convenient to travel in public transport around in the major cities in Korea. 

 

But there are also places outskirt or off the beaten tracks which are less accessible and a driving holiday will be the choice for some to explore these places. As Jeju is an island, it is one of the best choice to start off  your first Korea self-driving trip.

 

Do start tune to this thread as we share more information about self driving in Korea. Perhaps it will give you some inspirations for your own next holiday in Korea and maybe a driving trip. 

 

Best regards,

KTO Singapore

A very Happy New Year to all!
 
Many of us say hello and goodbye to each day as we watch the sun rise and set. Although it is a repeating cycle, the last sunset and the first sunrise of the year feel extra-special especially in Korea. Many viewing spots in Korea hold annual celebrations on New Year’s Eve and on the day of the New Year to welcome this once-in-a-year event. Here are some of the good spots to watch the sunrise of the year. 
 
Though you may have missed the 1st day of the year but the sunrise is still as beautiful if you are planning a driving trip to these spots in Korea in 2018 for the best instagrammable sunrise pictures! 
 
If you have had beautiful sunrise pictures taken on your Korea trip, do feel free to share them here!
 
Jeongdongjin Beach, Gangwon-do
 
1961884_image2_1.jpg
 
Jeongdongjin gets its name from the word jeongdong, which means due east in Korean, as it is exactly due east from Seoul's Gwanghwamun Gate. Its train station is known to be the world's nearest train station to the ocean. Watching the first sunrise of the year from Jeongdongjin will be a unique experience to begin the upcoming year.
 
Address: Jeongdongjin2-ri, Gangdong-myeon, Gangneung-si, Gangwon-do
 
Gyeongpo Beach at Gangneung, Gangwon-do  
 
2360068_image2_1.jpg
 
Gyeongpo Beach in Gangneung is one of the top sunrise viewing spots among Koreans. Every year on January 1, the area around the beach is filled with people enjoying the sunrise festival. The sun rising over the ocean fills the sky, helping to clear one’s mind and focus on positive thoughts for the year ahead.
 
Address: San 1-1, Anhyeon-dong, Gangneung-si, Gangwon-do
 
 
Homigot Sunrise Square, Pohang city, Gyeongsangbuk-do
 
685473_image2_1.jpg
 
Homigot is located at the easternmost end of the Korean peninsula, in what is thought to be the tail of the tiger based on Korean peninsula geography. Following the resources of Korea Astronomy and Space Science Institute, the sunrise time of Homigot is at 7:32 am, making it the earliest sunrise in Korea since January 1, 1999. 
 
Sangsaeng’s Hand, a two-part bronze sculpture shaped like a pair of hands, was constructed in December 1999 after starting the construction work in June. It is a signature symbol of the sunrise festival. The left hand is on the land and the right hand is in the ocean. It was built to give the message that all people are living together by helping one another like Sangsaeng, meaning coexistence in Korean. The base of the platform is an image of the sun and its two round rings refer to harmony. These two hands have memorial sprits of reconciliation and coexistence for celebrating a new millennium.
 
Address: 20, Haemaji-ro 150beon-gil, Nam-gu, Pohang-si, Gyeongsangbuk-do
 
 
Mukho Port at Donghae, Gangwon-do 
 
2504256_image2_1.jpg
Of the many ports and harbors along Gangwon-do’s coast, Mukho Port is perhaps the prettiest, with its small, charming fishing village. Visitors can’t help but fall in love with the cheerful murals along Nongondam-gil Road, and the coastal sunrise views afforded from Mukho Portside Park and Mukho Lighthouse. If you’re looking to relieve your stress from everyday life in the city, take a trip to Donghae!
 
 Address: Mukho Lighthouse, 289, Haemaji-gil, Donghae-si, Gangwon-do
 
 
Sorae Ecology Park at Incheon
 
2504313_image2_1.jpg
If you’re looking for more of an exotic sunrise view, head to Incheon’s Sorae Ecology Park. The sun rising behind the windmills in the field will have you feeling as if you travelled to the Netherlands. On winter mornings, the whole park is filled with mist rising off the marsh, providing even more light diffraction for a fantastic sunrise.
 
Address: 77, Sorae-ro 154beon-gil, Namdong-gu, Incheon
 
Seongsan Sunrise Peak, Jeju-do
 
2503094_image2_1.jpg
 
Seongsan Sunrise Peak rose from under the sea in a volcanic eruption over 100,000 years ago. Located on the eastern end of Jejudo Island, there is a huge crater at the top of Seongsan Ilchulbong Peak. The crater is about 600m in diameter and 90m high. With the 99 sharp rocks surrounding the crater, it looks like a gigantic crown. While the southeast and north sides are cliffs, the northwest side is a verdant grassy hill that is connected to the Seongsan Village.  As its name suggested, it is definitely one of the most beautiful place on Jeju island to capture the sunrise!
 
Address: 284-12, Ilchul-ro, Seongsan-eup, Seogwipo-si, Jeju-do
 
Akkeundarangswi Oreum, Jeju-do 
 
2029109_image2_1.jpg
Akkeundarangswi Oreum is a volcanic cone located in Sehwa-ri, Gujwa-eup, Jeju. The name comes from attaching the Jeju dialect for small, “akkeun,” to the name of the larger Darangswi Oreum to the southeast. This previously rather hidden gem has become quite popular in recent years. The small volcanic cone is easy to hike up, making it a great sunrise viewing location for people looking to surround themselves with nature.
 
Address: 2593, Sehwa-ri, Gujwa-eup, Jeju-si, Jeju-do

To add a touch of glamour to the event maybe can pair a driver from Singapore with an idol from Korea like members of SNSD.

I am sure a lot of people would like to see pics of this driving event. I am sure this will generate a lot of interest.

Hi Jamesc,

 

Thanks for the support and idea! We would love to see such progarmme as well, hopefully there is a TV producer who is keen on exploring and will approach KTO on this.  [thumbsup]

 

If this programme do materialize, you probably have to try going through an audition to be one of the elderly gentlemen but we can't be sure if it will be SNSD you will be driving though.
