Upon arriving in Geoje do just six short months ago I was blown away with it all.  There are sprawling mountains ending at crystal clear blue oceans, white sandy beaches, and a lot of  really amazing history.  I was eager to get out and explore this place to its fullest.  Determined to not get into a rut with work schedules and social events I was on my way.  Now, after seeing so many things here, and consulting with a lot of local residents, I have compiled a list of a few things that I would highly recommend seeing.  In no particular order, I will begin with:

  1. geoje pow campThe POW camp in Gohyun.  This place was a real camp during the Korean War and held prisoners from both North Korea and China.  There are many things to see and experience here and you will be guaranteed to learn a thing or two for sure.
  2. Haegumgang is a place just off the south end of the island and it consists of two small adjacent islands rising 116m above sea level.  In 1971 this place was designated National Scenic Site No. 2.  It is a great view and there is also the option to take a cruise around the area.
  3. Oedo is actually a short ferry ride away from Geoje do but definitely worth the trip.  This small island was actually turned into one huge garden with plants, flowers, and trees from all over the world.  This is truly s must see in this area and a great day out for the family.
  4. Hakdong Black Pearl Pebble Beach is another area that should not be missed.  This 1.2 km beach is one of the most popular places on the island for foreigners and locals alike, to cool down in the clean ocean on these hot summer days.
  5. Mundong Waterfall is just a short drive away form Gohyun and is a nice place to take the family on a weekend afternoon for a picnic.  It’s a very peaceful place where you can enjoy the sounds of the water cascading over high rocky peaks.  It really takes you away form the stresses of everyday life.
  6. Garasan is an area for the more energetic type person.  If you are feeling up to it some afternoon this mountain is recorded as the highest peak on Geoje do at 585m.  It gives a challenge to even the most fit person. Once reaching the top you will be rewarded with an amazing view of the whole island. In the past there was also a Buddhist temple here hosting as many as 70 monks.

This is just a short list of some of the most popular places to see but I highly recommend getting out on the roads and exploring this beautiful place that we are living. Enjoy!
