Guinsa: The right mix of spirit and nature
Guinsa, from what I understand, is the 3rd largest monastery in all of Korea; located about 40 minutes from Danyang city (town). The scenery from the bus to this holy place is as breathtaking as the location itself. I really love how colourful Buddhist temples in Korea tend to be; the opposite of their Japanese counterparts. Also, the monks and worshippers alike do not seem to have any issue with you being there - actually quite the opposite - and encourage your interaction, and leave you to meditate when you want. I really enjoyed this trip and highly recommend it.
