2 Days in Taean Anmyeondo

August 03, 2022

Do you ever heard about Taean? How about Anmyeondo?

Come to visit Taean, Anmyeondo for 2 days, and find the pleasure. I went to Taean with 2 of my friends on summer holiday. We tried to find information about Taean and what can be done there based on websites and SNS written by Koreans. I think Taean is still considered 'hidden gems' for foreigners, because there is not much foreigners know about this place. Therefore, my friends and I made an itinerary and activities based on how Koreans usually spend their time in Taean.

So, I would like to share our journey spending 2 Days in Taean. Let's play likes Korean!

Day 1: Lunch with Crab Soup -> Mudflat Experience -> Spend night in Pensions and BBQ

The first day is an experience day. We did not visit tourist attractions in Taean except the place for mudflat experience. So, before the activity, we agreed to had lunch with crab soup which has a lot of portions. Taking a set menu is the best choice for lunch, especially who comes in a group. We choose Crab Soup (게국지), and get side dishes like soy sauce marinated crab (간장게장), spicy marinated crab (양념게장), shrimp, and rice.

Then let's continue to the activity: Mudflat Experience. Mudflat Experience is an activity that can be done on a muddy beach, by looking for various marine animals such as shells. In Korea, the mudflat experience is also known as clam catching. This is our first experience in life, and we tried in Taean, South Korea. Such a unforgettable experience!

After the Mud Flat Experience activity, let's spend a night in Taean Pensions and have a BBQ. We can cook the clam at the pensions as part of dinner. So, we take the BBQ dinner that has been provided by the pensions, also eat the clams with noodles. Btw, we bought the noodles and other ingredients in mart before having a dinner. Don't forget to buy some snack-drinks to eat at night while chatting and playing board games with friends. This pensions provide some board games that we may to use.

Morning Day: Look Surrounding and Breakfast

We have time in the morning until 11am, before check-out. So, we take some morning walk to look around surrounding areas of pensions and take a breakfast. You may to wake up early and skip your breakfast either, the morning schedule is up to you. But I recommended you to do these morning activities, because I also didn't plan to do that before, but feel very lucky to be able to do this things in the morning.

First, because I get to know the surrounding area, there is another local village in Taean called "Otjeomhang (옷점항)". Second,  I leave the pensions with full energy because the pensions provided breakfast in bread, egg, juice or milk.

Taean Hydrangea Festival, Korea Flower Park

With full energy and neat makeup, we headed to the first tourist spot today: Hydrangea Festival or 2022 Taean Hydrangea Flower Exhibition. This festival located in Korea Flower Park (코리아플라워파크), near Kktotji Beach. We enjoyed the first visit by taking a mobile cart inside the park, and after that choose the spots that we are gonna taking photos.

Lunch, Snack and Drinks

After enjoy the Hydrangea Festival, we move to Anmyeondo Fish Market to have a lunch and try local snacks. We find the seafood kalguksu (해물 칼국수) just beside the market with the affordable price. After that you may try the local snacks 'fried seafood' that sold here.

We still have time before having a sunset in Kkotji Beach, that's why we go to the cafe with ambience after lunch. We need to take a rest for a while, drink a cold water, and share our taken photos. So, we find a cafe 'Travel Break Coffee' because we find it beautiful and has it ambience from the websites. In my personal opinion, this cafe really has their ambience, but not for the taste. So, if you come to find the tasty drinks, you may to visit other cafes.
