Must-Try Activities in Tongyeong

As a charming port city off the southern coast of Korea, Tongyeong is often likened to Naples in Italy. With its romantic views of the sea, natural attractions, and cultural villages, you can expect to have a relaxing and enriching trip here. To take in all the beauty of Tongyeong, consider the following activities that are recommended to first-time visitors:

1. Experience the thrill in Skyline Luge Tongyeong

Start your trip at Skyline Luge Tongyeong, which is on the list of the Top 100 Must-Visit Tourist Spots in South Korea! The attraction offers two rides that will give you a good first impression of the city: the Skyride and the luge.

The Skyride is a 5-seater chairlift that will take you up a hilltop, which is the base point for all luge riders. As you ascend, you’ll be able to see Hallyeo National Marine Park and the hundreds of islands that surround Tongyeong!

View of Tongyeong’s surrounding islands from Mt. Mireuk.
