When you think of Korea, you probably don’t think of beaches. I don’t see a lot of movies featuring crazy Korean beach parties or beautiful ocean montages.
But I’m from Missouri, so I’m easily impressed with any beach. That probably wouldn’t be the case if I was from Hawaii or Florida.
I had a few days off in the middle of the week and I didn’t use nearly as much money as I thought I would in Japan, so I booked a fancy smancy hotel by the beach in Daecheon.
Daecheon beach is in the city of Boryeong. You can take a bus, but the train doesn’t take as long. Once you arrive at Daecheon station, you can take a local bus to the beach.
I like hostels but it is nice to have your own big bed and tv with room service every once in a while. I still have the financial mindset of a college student most of the time, so this splurge won’t happen often.
I hung out by the beach, had some tasty waffles, seafood pasta, and watched a harry potter marathon. The water was nice, the beach wasn’t crowded, and the hotel was great. Why can’t everyone hang out on the beach every day?
