The season of autumn deepens on southernmost coastal city of Yeosu (Õòâ©) in South Korea. Among the four distinctive seasons in the nation the fall season is called the most beautiful of all in the country.
The above photo was taken in mid-October in 2020 by Madame Audrey Shim Jae-Sook, an advisor for The Seoul Times when she went on a weekend trip to Yeosu, a resort and tourist city with wonderful nature and rich marine tourism resources.
Among dozens of islands scattered around Yeosu, Madame Shim visited two islands — Geumodo Island (ÑÑè§Óö), a fairly large island off the southern tip of Dolsan in Yeosu and Jangdo Island (íïÓö), literally an island of water deer.
Geumodo Island (ÑÑè§Óö) in Yeosu is the island right off the southern tip of Dolsan. The island is famous for the beautiful beaches and for several kilometers of hiking trails. Geumodo is a good place for camping and trekking.This island is only a ferry ride away from Yeosu.
In particular the island is called the island of culture with such artistic facilities as four creative studios for artists, a multipurpose exhibition hall, the archipelagic garden, and observatory decks.
Madame Shim said that she and her fellow travelers enjoyed the park of sculpture donated by GS-Caltex on Jangdo Island.
"Pristine beauty of Jangdo Island blends into the blue waters down at the sea," Madame Shim said. "I particularly appreciated the clean and fresh air there"
She said that she took the ferry to go to Geumo Island from Yeosu and took several hiking courses on the island.
She visited a cafe run by her friend, which was decorated by Korea's traditional millstones on the ground.
She said her photos were taken by her while she was sipping teas with her colleagues within the cafe.
Yeosu (Õòâ©), a coastal city in South Jeolla Provionce, is a very popular travel destination for local Koreans.
The city located on the southern coast of the Korean Peninsula was the venue of 2012 World Expo.
With the deep blue ocean views during the day and with a fantastic nightscape after sunset, Yeosu attracts a number of tourists including foreigners. and the neighbouring city of Suncheon, South Korea¡¯s center of ecology, was designated by UNESCO in 2018 as a biosphere reserve.
