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. Use our South Korea trip itinerary builder to arrange the details of your trip to Ulsan and other destinations.

Where to stay

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.
