According to Wikipedia “Seogwipo’s atmosphere is similar to other Korean seaside towns – old love motels with tacky fixtures and neon signs, run-down old businesses, a harbor bound in concrete.”
Well we don’t agree! We found Seogwipo an attractive village with an artsy atmosphere on a hillside up from a bustling harbour full of fishing boats; good food, a traditional market, nice forest walks and waterfalls nearby.
We stayed 3 nights; walked Route 7.1 one day and strolled a round town the next. It was a holiday long weekend for Children’s Day then Parent’s Day; all public attractions free so lots of visitors. Found an overseas ATM at WOORIBANK.
