Happy National Doughnut Day!

Yongyeon Pond (용연)

Yongyeon (Jeju Island, South Korea)

#Jeju #제주 #용연

This place on Jeju Island is supposed to be most beautiful (and crowded) at night, but I was there alone in the day. This is where the fresh water at the end of a mountain valley meets the salty sea water on the north side of Jeju. The name means “Dragon Pond” as the dragon in the nearby rock is said to have come to this pond to play. I don’t remember if I strolled on over to the pavilion.

If I ever find myself in Korea again I will not pass on this opportunity. I wandered through this place while doing a day hike in the Naejangsan National Park (내장산). I didn’t see a single soul, but apparently you can stay here, participate in zen activities, and be fed for under $50 a night.
