Located in South Korea’s South Jeolla province, Yeosu is a picturesque coastal city that has been steadily growing in popularity with tourists. The city is served by Yeosu Airport
, which is located near major ground transportation hubs, so it’s easy to get from the airport to hotels in the city center.
The landscape of Yeosu, complete with the Yeosu peninsula and famous Dolsan Bridge
, makes it a photographer’s dream. Often tourists and locals will gather for a night of drinks and entertainment along Dolsan Park
, taking in the sights and definitely snapping one of two photos. The park is definitely the best vantage point for not only the bridge but for the many different districts of Yeosu, each accentuated by either a coastline or mountain range to create a stunning cityscape. Hyangiram Hermitage
is an impressive structure that serves a monastery and sort of temple, located on a cliff and overlooking the sea. The hermitage offers spectacular views of the sea and surrounding landscape, and the trek up the cliff to witness it is certainly part of the adventure.
