The very first Roman Catholic church in Korea. If you're going just to see it, I suggest maybe visiting on a weekday. They close the church to sightseers during mass times on Sundays, which is practically almost ever hour. PSA—if you're late for the 9am English mass, you can't get in anymore, so be early!!! Or actually, there might be a way to go in but we didn't try hard enough.

Beautiful temple complex. I wish I had more time to explore the area. I originally wanted to book a temple stay here, but they only held the one-day ones on Thursdays, and they cancelled the one on the week were in Seoul for an event. Definitely coming back for that one though. Check out the gift shop before you go. They have great Buddhist-related stuff, like lucky bracelets. (I got one and I wear it everyday.)

Work your way up to the northern part of the country with the White Temple as your first stop! The White Temple we have today is the brainchild of Chiang Rai-born artist Chalermchai Kositpipat. He reconstructed the temple in a way that is representative of Buddhist philosophies and teachings on life and death.
