Ganjeolgot, Ulsan

(4.2/5 based on 45+ reviews on the web)
Ganjeolgot is a park and popular tourist destination in Seosaeng-myeon, Ulju County, Ulsan, South Korea. Every New Year's Eve, people gather at the park for the Ganjeolgot Sunrise Festival. Ganjeolgot is the easternmost part of the Korean Peninsula, so it is where you can see the first sunrise of the year, earlier than anywhere else in Korea. Ganjeolgot is also home to the world's second-largest mailbox, which was built in 2006. People write their wishes on postcards and put them in the mailbox with the belief that doing this will make their wishes come true. The name Ganjeolgot is composed of two parts: Ganjeol, Chinese for a long bamboo pole used to harvest fruits from tall trees, and Got, a native Korean word meaning "cape." The name refers to the geographical shape of the area.

  • 南韓最早看到日出的地方,每年元旦都很多人來這裏看日出;有全南韓最大的郵筒。 海岸線很美,風車和燈塔在藍天白雲襯托下特別美,輕輕鬆鬆在這裏踱步,慢活半天,很寫意。
