When I first arrived in Ulsan, I was surprised to see that the city is actually huge. I had been imagining it to be a small suburb, with few places to see. Boy, I was glad to be proven wrong.
First, I saw a lot of dance studios around the city! Yay to that! 🙂 Although I can’t afford them at the moment.
So, I will focus more on the FREE places to go to in Ulsan.
First up: DAEWANGAM PARK.
This is a park situated at the easternmost part of the city, and yes, probably, one of the easternmost parts of the peninsula.
The park is adjacent to Ilsan Beach, and it features some very nice rock formations and lighthouses.
I think Daewangam is a well-maintained leisure spot in the city, and I would love to see more of it in the future. It is relaxing, and I particularly liked that you can breathe fresh air from the conifers, plus a brief walk will take you to some nice sea breeze coupled with a wonderful seascape.
Other places we can spend some nice weekends in:
The Ulsan Grand Park
I did not take a lot of pictures, because I know I will definitely be back here, especially when the flowers have bloomed. 🙂
So for now, please bear with these images.
Who would have thought that there will be a Filipino-owned Filipino-style bar in the middle of a remote city in Korea?
Located in the Ulsan’s old downtown Seongnamdong, the ambience inside the bar will take you back home. It screams Manila in all corners. 🙂
Aside from being able to use the karaoke for free, you can also do it with the live band playing right behind you. How cool is that?!
I think I am going to like living in this city. 🙂
