We took an evening stroll along the waterfront area straddling from two major attractions, the water fountains and the Gatbawi Rock, in Mokpo, South Korea. There are lots of locals walking briskly or slowly like us. The lifestyle is relaxed in contrast to the big...More

Gatbawi Rock has a great walking path. The lights attract small fish and jellyfish. The only thing that I didn't like was that fishing is allowed on the boardwalk. Some inconsiderate and seemingly inexperienced 'fishermen' obstructed the path and even cast their lines over groups...More
