  • Nice area with lots of nice murals. There are also heaps of cafes and restaurants around the corner. Some of ships at the Port are very fancy and seem to have lots of history . The tour guide told us those old fancy ships are battle ships from long time ago. Definitely well worth learning about the history of this place it makes your visit ever so more facinating!!!!!!
  • A beautiful area in Tongyeong! If you're in town, this cute area is a must see. They also repaint the murals every year or so, so there's lots of fresh artwork to admire. There's also several good cafes and snack shacks there. Finally, there's a little shrine thing at the top of the hill. It's also very close to the turtle ships so you can easily visit them as well.
