Taejeongdae: A beautiful park on Yeongdo

haps Korea Magazine

Located on the island of Yeongdo, Taejongdae is a scenic park with great views from cliffs facing the sea. There is an evergreen forest to wander around in and several facilities for tourists such as an observatory, an amusement park with a full-on Ferris wheel, a light house, and a cruise ship terminal and, as you can see in the photo below, some funky modern Korean sculpture.

The name of the area comes from King Taejong Muyeol (604-661), who liked to practice archery there following the unification of the Three Kingdoms of Korea.
