The Cultural Heritage Night Tour is a cultural asset support project supported by the Cultural Heritage Administration to enjoy nighttime cultural properties such as viewing, experiences, performances, and exhibitions of cultural properties using local historical and cultural resources based in a densely populated area.

The Cultural Heritage Administration support project first started in 2016 under the theme of “Creating the night with history”, and Tongyeong was selected in 2019 and celebrated its 4th year this year.

Cultural heritage night trips include night views, yaro (walking streets at night), night paintings, and night scenes.

The theme of the 2022 Tongyeong Cultural Heritage Night Trip is Manhasebyeong  – Dancing Cultural Property

The name of Tongyeong Sebyeonggwan, a representative historical, cultural, and tourism resource of Tongyeong comes from the Chinese poem “Manhasebyeong”, which means “to wash weapons by drawing the Milky Way”.

This year’s Tongyeong Cultural Heritage Night Trip is a night tour that connects cultural assets and surrounding cultural facilities such as museums and art galleries, centered on Tongyeong Samdo Sugunjeongjeyeong, the base cultural property, through a historical experience demonstration program, traditional games, traditional food, and traditional culture accommodation experiences.

Utilization of stories and images of the Big Dipper, Yi Sun-sin, and Artist Street

Last year, the Tongyeong cultural heritage night tour program was operated by dividing it into five zones, east, west, north, and south centered on Jeongjeongyeong Street using the traditional Korean color of Obangsaek.

Tongyeong City Museum, and Yun Sang Memorial Park are planned to operate a variety of programs along the 1.7km route.

In addition, depending on the participation level, Sangpyeong Tongbo and Seoho Traditional Market discount coupons, Tongyeong Bam Sea marine tour boarding discount coupons are linked with the stamp tour so that it can be an opportunity to look around the living places of famous artists such as Yoon Sang Memorial Park and understand their lives and activities.
