Favorite thing: The road journey from Danyang town to Guinsa Temple (about 1 hour) passes through some breathtaking sceneries of the Namhan River, surrounding mountains, various towns, bridges etc. In autumn, the colourful foliage makes this even more amazing.
Favorite thing: At the Guinsa Temple, you will see an elephant statue surrounded by the statues of the 12 animals of the Chinese animal horoscope. These statues can be seen as you make your way up to the main complex of the Guinsa Temple. Attached are photos of the statues.
Favorite thing: The bus journey from Seoul to Danyang town is about 3 hours and pass through crop fields, mountains, rivers and towns. Generally, the bus rides are comfortable as the buses are air-conditioned and the seats are wide. The only uncomfortable part are the seat belts which can be rather tight.
Favorite thing: Autumn is the best time to visit Danyang town for its colourful foliage colours. Middle of October to early November is the peak colour season. More photos of the autumn foliage is at the travelogue section of this VT page.
If you like photography, then Danyang town and surroundings offer a lot of opportunities in terms of the local people, town life, cave sceneries, mountains, temples, river etc. I took a lot of photographs when I was at Danyang and nearby Sobaeksan National Park.
