Let's say you'll only have a day and you really would like to go out of Seoul for just a day, where would you go? There's a lot of beautiful place out of Seoul where you can visit within a day, and the place I'd like to talk about today is 청평사 (Cheong Pyeong Sa), a temple located in Chuncheon Area.
It's a little bit complicated to get into this place since the bus no. 18-1 which can takes you directly to the main gate of this place from Chuncheon station only operated 2 times a day which is 9 45 AM and 10 PM. HAH! And what worst is it doesn't even operated during weekend~ What a good arrangement from the local government... m.m"
So the other option is a little bit complicated but well who cares since it's a vacation~ ^^ You need to take bus no. 11, 12 or 150 from the opposite of Chuncheon Station and stop at So Yang River Dam (Soyang Gang Daem) stop. You just have to get down when you see this thing...
Can you imagine a famous King from a big Dynasty of his time, with a daughter who is married having an affair with a disciple of famous monk from the time? How huge the humiliation is it to him!! If I were the King, I would definitely not only kill the guy, but I'll kill the princess as well. =_=" And later on, after the death of her father, her brother take the throne as Emperor Gaozong of Tang, by this time she plotted a rebellion with her husband and in the end being sentenced to death by hanging by Empress Wu.
Keep going on, you'll see this "Turtle Rock"~ They said it looks like turtle =D
