Ullengdo (Ulleung island) - Kyungbuk, Korea

Ulleungdo locates in East sea. It takes 2:30 hours boat riding from Gangneung city. It also takes full 2 days trip from Seoul. Ullengdo is a volcanic island and it looks like Kauai in Hawaii. It really does but smaller.
Ulleungdo was an independent countrry until the year of 513 under the name of Usanguk. But Silla dynasty conquered this county and named it as Ulleungdo.
There are several ports where boats leave for Ulleungdo. They are Pohang, Hupo, Mukho and Gangeung. But most convinient port from Seoul is Gangeung.
Are you ready to enjoy the beauty of Ulleungdo?

  1. Hi! I am planning to visit Ulleungdo Island around June 29. I do not speak Korean, and I am looking for a personal tour guide for a couple of days to explore the island. Would you be available around that time? Please let me know, as this is the top place that I want to visit during my 2-week vacation in Korea! Thank you!
