What to do and see in Wando-gun, South Korea: The Best Places and Tips

October 13, 2017 Dorsey Hagwood

Wando County (Wando-gun) is a county in South Jeolla Province, South Korea. It takes its name from the island of Wando, which is the largest island within the county and serves as the county seat. Wando island is perhaps most famous for Cheonghaejin, the former headquarters of Jang Bogo, a 9th-century Korean historical figure whose private fleet and army dominated the sea routes in the Yellow Sea. Wando's most famous native in modern times is champion golfer K.J. Choi.

There was located beside sea on the small mountain. The tower was about my expectation with beautiful sea view and good atmosphere. The view was very beautiful, and the atmosphere was very good to us. And small garden and trail was very good, too. If visited Wando, must visit. Recommendable place.

Sinji Myeongsasimni Beach

Reviewed By RlfDinky - Roubaix, France

Située à une dizaine de kilomètres de Wando, nous avons rejoint cette plage en taxi ( environ 15.000 KW). Une immense étendue de sable adossée a une petite colline, ouverte sur une Baie où les différentes îles décorent une mer bleue. Encore isolée et locale cette plage dispose de quelques hôtels d accueil ( moins de 5 étages) et d infrastructures réduites ( café, super marche). Idéal pour marcher au bord de mer dans la tranquillité ( et pourtant nous y avons été un Dimanche ...). A voir dans sa simplicité ... dans 5-10 ans je pense que ça changera. Pour le retour nous avons demandé à une personne de la supérette a l entrée du village de nous appeler un taxi ( il y a peut être des bus ?)

Mihwangsa Temple

Reviewed By gaferna - Toronto

I just finished my temple stay at Mihwangsa. I must say it's one of the best experiences I've had while traveling. You are free to explore as much as you want. You can learn about meditation, Buddhism and also be in contact with nature. The temple is beautiful plus very well located. The sunset is one of the best I've seen anywhere. Also, Jajae, (who is in charge of the temple stay,) is the nicest, warm hearted person that you will meet. I really recommend this temple stay for anyone, anytime and no matter from where you are.

Dadohae National Park

Reviewed By RlfDinky - Roubaix, France

La baie de Wando se compose d un chapelet d îles montagneuses couvertes de forêts avec pour certaines des très grandes plages de sable blond en forme d arc de cercle. Certaines îles sont accessibles en taxi ( pas eu le temps de voir les bus) et d autres avec des petits bateaux. Cette baie a un air de la Baie d Along avec d ailleurs quelques maisons flottantes et des parcs de pisciculture. Les gens de cette partie de la Corée sont vraiment très aimables ( mais tous les Coréens sont aimables). Disons que nous sommes dans le Sud et qu ils sont donc un peu plus cools. Vraiment je vous recommande d y rester 2 nuits pour profiter de cette ambiance plage et port.

The impression of that this is the southwest end of Korean peninsula could get me emotional. The sea and Islands! I rode a monorail but if I could have hike it, it would have been better.
