Observation Deck Tourist Spot
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.

  • It is the famous Ganjolgot. I don't see any special thing there but saw why people come here. It was famous for a spot to see sunrise and sunset on. From there it started to have many buildings and sculptures and so on. As more people came, it became more famous. Frankly speaking, Ganjolgot is just a place you can see on sea shore in many places in Korea. I mean it is not that special. Now it is a public park and well arranged. This is another reason why it is popular among Koreans. 간절곶. 해돋이로 유명한곳. 그라나 난 그리 특별한 건 못 느꼈다.
  • Park with great views of the water.
  • So pretty!!
