Gateway to the Yeongnam Alps

A powerhouse of industry not just for South Korea but the world, Ulsan offers up a thriving metropolis dominated by trade but interspersed with some undisturbed scenery. Home to the world's largest shipyard and automobile plant, the city pulsates with the bustle of industry, operating on a mammoth scale. To escape the sometimes-claustrophobic activity of factories on your Ulsan vacation, look to the city's "Twelve Scenic Sights;" each offers its own unique glimpse of nature in and around the city. Situated on the coast with a strong whaling heritage, the city boasts black pebble beaches and whaling museums. Travelers also use the city as a gateway to the Yeongnam Alps.

Where to stay in Ulsan

Providing everything from comfortable business hotels to budget-friendly motels, Ulsan reveals an ample range of accommodation options. Many places to stay in Ulsan are centered around the downtown Samsan-Dong area, which offers some of the city's most premium choices to more economical bed and breakfast motels. In the area near the intercity bus terminals, a handful of traditional Korean overnight “jjimjilbangs” bathhouses also provide a low cost yet unconventional option.
