7. Picturesque Views
When the sun rises over the ocean, it outlines the train station and pine trees, creating a sight straight out of a fairytale.
6. No Sea Sickness Here
Sounds of crashing waves are played over speakers throughout the hotel, enhancing the cruise ship theme. The resort’s swimming pool is filled with saltwater, adding to the authenticity.
5. Cruise Without The Cost
There are no fuel costs or crew members needed to operate this boat, so the resort offers a cruise-like experience at much more affordable rates. Family-sized rooms, complete with views of the sea, rent for around 220,000 South Korean Won per night ($197 in U.S. dollars). All of the resort’s guest rooms feature en-suite bathrooms, too.
4. Top Floor
Party animals will find themselves at home in the karaoke room. It’s stocked with a high-tech sound system, video projector, and disco lighting.
3. Weddings, Parties, Anything
Before the construction of the Sun Cruise, Jeongdongjin was one of the lesser-known tourist spots in South Korea. The resort spurred tourism growth to the region, and it’s accessible from the Jeongdongjin harbor, train station, or the nearby Moraeshigae Park.
