Hydrovolcanic eruptions formed this majestic volcanic crater 5,000 years ago on Jeju Island.A UNESCO world heritage site, the peak is famous for many things, including numerous rare plant species, but is best known for the magnificent sight of the sun rising over it (hence the name).

Located four kilometers southwest from Anmyeon-eup, this cream-colored beach is the ideal place to go for a drive and watch the sun sink into the ocean between two large rock formations known as the Granny Rock and the Grandpa Rock.

Darangee Village, a small well-preserved village in the southernmost area of west Namhae-gun, features an extraordinary sight of countless tiny fields (over 100 levels) on a steep mountain slope against the open sea.

Also known as the Diamond Bridge, this two-story bridge connects Suyeong-gu and Haeundae-gu and offers an astonishing view of mountains, sandy beaches, hills and city lights. Kwang-An Bridge is not for pedestrians, but anyone can enjoy the spectacular night view of the bridge from afar; its state-of-the-art lighting system allows an exterior lighting of over 100,000 colors.

This small whistle-stop bustles with tourists and amateur photographers every spring. Cherry blossoms rain down on the train track and countless shutters click madly away as the train approaches the station under the cherry blossom tunnel.The cherry blossom road at Yeojwa stream, (number 17 on this list) is also nearby for those who want more photo-ops.

At 2,314 kilometers squared, Upo Marsh is the largest inland wetland in Korea and thrice the size of Yeouido. Formed over 140 million years ago, the marsh is home to 1,500 plants and animals, some of which are endangered species.Visitors can bike or walk around this beautiful natural swamp, where migratory birds are known for flying low.

Physical fitness and mountain climbing experience are prerequisites to viewing these curious peaks in the Seorak mountain range. Thought to be shaped like the spine of a dinosaur (hence the name, “Dinosaur Ridge”), this rocky ridge offers spectacular views of both inner and outer Seorak.

Uleung Island, nicknamed “Mysterious Island”, is a popular weekend getaway spot for Seoulites.Curious rock formations, shore cliffs and numerous waterfalls adorn the island’s Seaside Road.Anyone planning to walk or bike their way around Uleung Island should make sure they set aside enough time, as they will inevitably stop countless times to admire the glorious view.

The fifth item on this list already touched on the festival of cherry blossoms in Jinhae, but the cherry blossom road at Yeojwa Stream is so strikingly beautiful that it deserves another mention (and another photo).Lovers visit this site to cross the “Romance Bridge”, which has been used as a shooting location for “Romance,” a drama starring Kim Ha-nul and Kim Jae-won.
