Attractions, Seogwipo 서귀포

Seogwipo 서귀포 : Saeseom Island 새섬& Saeyeongyo Bridge ( 새연교)

I have been wanting to come here for a while but since it is relatively close to the guesthouse, I put it off 🙂

On a nice day like this day, I dragged one of the guests who just arrived to come here with me.  My selling point was “famous Seogwipo bridge”.
The bridge is created with the vision of a Teuw in mind (tradition Jeju boat) and it is the first cable-stayed(?) bridge in Korea as well as the longest pedestrian bridge in the south.

At night, it is lit up by LED lights!

At the other end of the bridge is Bird Island!  It is said that people use to live here up to the 50s!  These days its an eco area with day hikers.  At night, it is pitched black and super scary ….

The distance around the island is 1.2 km.

The bridge from a distance as taken close to the Eco park.
