Wolmi-do Island in Incheon

Travel 2019-09-06

Wolmi-do is one of the most popular places in Incheon, Korea. It’s located about 1 km off the coast in Incheon. They have a small amusement park which is called Paly Hill. I wasn’t very much into rides but just watching people could still be exciting.


It has been a while since the last time I visited and I just figured we could eat some seafood but I could tell that many things have changed. The amusement park itself looked much cleaner and modernized so we definitely enjoyed walking around. Besides, just being there was so much fun and you can smell the fresh ocean air.


The restaurant we visited was very popular with grilled clams and I know many foreigners might not like it and I’ve even heard some people say that it’s disgusting. But if you like seafood, then you definitely must try this. I didn’t have high expectations myself at first, but this restaurant has their own recipe for grilled clams and it’s much better than other restaurants that I have been to. This was the only place where it was packed and we had to wait for a while to get a table.

You can also take a road leading to a lighthouse which is called Incheon Wolmido Lighthouse Road and you can see a bright sign at night so you can't miss it. 

When you get to the riverside, you might see some people fishing there and you can also see the night sky lit up with fireworks. It was really beautiful.

They provide cruise service as well so if you want to take a short tour near the island, you can buy a ticket for that. Watching it pass by very closely was very impressive to us. You better see it with you own eyes because it's beyond description from the picture.
