Gunsan is located in South Korea’s North Jeolla province, and is home to the US Air Force Base as well as a free trade zone that has encouraged a lot of commerce and investment in the area. The most common way of travel into the city is by rail, although Gunsan Airport
also serves daily domestic flights from Jeju. Eunpa Lake Park
is a beautiful urban park that features paved walking and bike trails that circle the lake, with live entertainment on the weekends and a beautiful scene of lights and decorations around the lake and trails. The park is complete with many dining and entertainment options, and a favorite destination among locals and tourists alike. During the day, it’s a great place in which to walk along the trail and maybe hop on one of the many public exercise machines at the workout stations – it’s a great way to stay active while on vacation, and while getting to interact with other tourists or locals of the city. Originating in Jangsu-eup and terminating into the Yellow Sea, the Geum River
is a major river that flows through much of North Jeolla province. As Gunsan is the final stop on the river’s tour of this province, it’s a big part of the city’s landscape and much of the region’s history. If looking for beautiful views of the river and beyond, be sure to select a hotel near the riverfront.
