    Of Perriers and Monks

    Osaek Mineral Springs, Inner Sorak Area

    Rumour has it that a monk discovered a wonderful, life-giving spring in Osaek. Yes, the story was wonderfully... bizarre as the monk later disappeared ( maybe he got a green card or something ) . But the water supposedly gets rid of all ailments so give it a try.
    It tastes exactly like Perrier as it's naturally carbonated. I don't know about the magical disappearing properties though.
    So, if you are keen for some free perrier, just grab your little red pail ( free) from any restaurateur and head for "Osaek Mineral Spring". Once you're there, you'll see a soup queue for the free stuff.

The pots that you see over here in Osaek contain fiery sauces that fermenting in chilli and shrimp. The thieves would have died sitting in those sauces...

    Monument, Mt Sorak Park

    This statue is a grim reminder of the Korean War . Not many know this but Mt Sorak was the site of a fierce battle. Lots of soldiers fought and died here due to the harsh, cold conditions...
