With lovely green hills all about, sedate little Samcheok (삼척) is the gateway to an unusual mix of sightseeing spots. Within an hour’s bus ride are spectacular limestone caves, an inimitable ‘penis park’ (phallic sculptures, not body parts) within a lovely wooded setting and pretty beaches tucked away in quiet coves. The town has a rousing Full Moon Festival in February, with tug-of-war competitions.
