The historic port city of Tongyeong is located in the South Korean province of South Gyeongsang. The city is accessible via the expressway linking Busan and Geoje, making it a lot easier for buses and cars to reach the city.
Tongyeong is a great placefor taking a few days off and just relaxing by the coastline, taking in the views and enjoying the local cuisine. It’s also home to the Geobukseon Turtle Ship Replica
, which is a remake of the naval ship that was used to defend the country from a Japanese invasion. The ship is now a tourist attraction, along with the Nammangsan Sculpture Park
and the historic port. The city is also famous for a special Korean-style sushi, as well as offering many other local cuisines to sample between days spent exploring the landmarks and public parks.
