The tram makes six stops along the way – nearest to the most common places worth seeing. A wide sidewalk makes it
easy walking if you want to hike.
There is a lovely Observatory Deck – where you may be able to see quite a few ships on the horizon. Going inside
from the Observation Deck, you can also get some lunch – a western-style restaurant makes up the first floor, while a
Korean-style restaurant makes up the second floor. It is, of course, nice to know that beer and soju are available...
A maze of stairs leads the tourist past a lighthouse, down to the waves and rocks close to the water. Just keep
heading down stairs until you find the water – you’ll make it!
Taejongsa (a Buddhist temple not far from the main road) is also worth checking out.
Being here is guaranteed to be a wonderful time filled with mountains, water, hiking, and pictures. More than a few
Koreans bring their dates here for the sights.
The main attractions of this area for some are the also clam tents. There’s a line of them along the pebble beach
near the park entrance. Spend a few hours hiking around the park, then go cook and eat some clams (and other seafood)
at your table. Especially interesting if you’re there around sundown as you’ll see many of the ladies in diving suits
going out to get dive for more clams.
Directions: Take bus 8, 88-A or 88-B to the last stop from Metro Line 1 Nampo-dong station (exit 6).
From there, face the main street and turn left. Alternatively you can take a taxi.
