Day 6

An authentic Korean building

After a busy week, it was time to relax a little bit and enjoy the Korean culture. South Korea has one of the oldest histories in the world. After having a very good breakfast everyone was ready to go explore what the Ulsan area had to offer.

After a ten minutes ride up the hills and a five minutes walk, we finally got to the Buddhist temples. They were situated on top of the hills and overlooked the whole area surrounding Ulsan. It felt good being up some mountains as the weather was a lot cooler. We visited the temples, then drove to another place with more temples.

It was such a good experience. We were all fascinated about how such old places were still in really good shape.

We once again took the bus and went to a little city by Ulsan. We had lunch at this restaurant that offered over 40 different Korean dishes. A lot of us chose not to eat lunch as we had a late breakfast. After lunch we visited the oldest observatory in Asia.

After that it was time to visit the museum. The museum had a lot of different objects from different times. After a long day, everyone went back to the hotel and went to bed.
