Yeosu to Accelerate in Efforts to Develop Thematic Tourist Attractions in Local Islands

 

Previously attracting more than 10 million visitors to various local tourist sites, the city of Yeosu is accelerating its efforts to develop thematic tourist spots in regional islands.

Following Wando Island, the district that contains the largest number of islands in Jeollanamdo, Yeosu continues to diversify tourism programs for domestic and international travelers.

Geumodo Island, which became popular since the 2012 Yeosu World Expo, is now offering greater access to visitors with the newly launched water route linking the island with the neighboring Baekyado (백야도) Island.

In addition, the Ministry of Security and Administration project, ‘Most Wanted Islands for Travel’ is currently being carried out in four islands in Yeosu including Gaedo, Geumodo, Baekyado and Yeojado Island.

A total of 10 billion won will be invested in constructing coastal hiking paths, experience programs and ecological and art travel centers in the four islands by 2017.
