Waking up at 4:30am in the morning, we left the hotel by 5am and drove to the base of Seongsan Ilchulbong. It took about 30 minutes to do the easy hike with plenty of wooden stairs. The sunrise came at 5:43am that morning and I looked in awe at the sky which was a beautiful blend of red and orange.
Next on our list was Seopjikoji which was well known as the place where the 2003 Korean drama, All In, was filmed. In the drama, a white church was perched on the hill but when we went, it was replaced by a white building that resembled ice cream.
It was easy to use the Korean GPS because we just had to key in the phone number of the place we wanted to go to. Although we did buy a data SIM card for this trip, Google Maps was barely helpful compared to the Korean GPS. Google Maps did not have a lot of the places we wanted to go to even though they were popular tourist destinations!
