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.
