There is nothing like seeing the first sunrise of the year to solidify your resolve and achieve your New  Year’s resolutions for the new year.  Watch the first sunrise of  the New  Year at a top sunrise viewing spot in Korea, wish for good luck, and start a new year of hope. 

A top sunrise spot where the sun first rises in Korea, is Homigot in Pohang, Gyeongsangbuk-do.  “Homigot Sunrise Festival” is held from evening on Dec. 31 until Jan. 1 of the next year.  There is a fireworks show, sunrise concert, other performances, and then, with the sound of the drum signaling the new year, which reverberates all over Homigot,  you can witness the breathtakingly beautiful sunrise of the new year. If you want to ride on a train covering 58km along Korea’s picturesque East Coast and see the surging sea and the sunrise of the East Sea, Jeongdongjin is recommended.  A beautiful scenic spot with a quaint, little railway station standing alongside the sandy beach, it is Korea’s most popular sunrise spot.  At  “Jeongdongjin Sunrise Festival”,  you can see a fireworks show,  the ceremonial “turning of the hourglass”,  and the sunrise of the new year.
