Located along the south of a wonderful attraction, Geum River, Kunsan is a city in South Korea which is an ideal spot for swimming, boating, and other water activities. It is the home of the popular Gunsan Islands and other wonderful land and water attractions. The city is easily reachable by booking cheap flights to Kunsan, though you can also ride a bus and take advantage of the city view.
To make the most of your stay in Kunsan, remember to visit the Eunpa Park. The place is perfect for families and youths. Eunpa, also known as “Silver Wave”, was once a reservoir for agriculture before it actually became a national tourist attraction in 1985. It has a cherry blossom tunnel and a musical fountain that operates eight times daily. The Mulbit Bridge, which is a 370 meter long bridge, is also found in this park. Common outdoor activities in the park include windsurfing, biking, and boating.
Aside from Gunsan Islands, visitors can also book cheap flights to Kunsan to be able to visit Gogunsangundo Islands. It is one of the eight most famous spots in Seon-Yu that is well-known for its natural beauty. Among the islands that constitute Gogunsangundo Islands are Bangchukdo, Maldo, and Shinsido. Passenger ships are available to get in and out of the island though departing times may differ every month due to changes in the flow of the tide.
Although buses and taxis are available at the center of the city, be reminded that touring around the islands of Kunsan requires you to go on foot or by bike as most islands are not contaminated and do not allow cars. There are no banks or even ATMs in these locations too, so make sure you have enough money to spend while in the islands.
Unlike banks, hotels in Kunsan are easier to find. You can find some good accommodations in the city. While dining options are limited, the dominant cuisine, hoe (raw seafood items), can easily be sold in hoe markets and food stalls. So if you are planning on staying here for a long time but do not like Korean food, you may end up miserable unless you bring some food from the mainland.
