Daecheon Beach

When you think of Korea, you probably don’t think of beaches.  Korea is not really a world surfing, fishing, or scuba diving destination.

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?
