YeoSu, The Venice of Korea?

Yeosu(pronounced “You” as in “young” followed by “Soo”), a city of two big bridges that glow beautifully at night. People call this port of the south the “Venice of Korea”. Well a bit over-exaggerated city has enough attractions to fetch everyone’s eye and I enjoyed every bit of it.

First we jumped on a cable car which goes over the sea water connecting the city with an Odongdo island. It is a 3.1km long and floats higher than the top of the nearby bridge.

If you ever been to the Sentosa island in Singapore on a cable car, well I think this one probably borrowed the idea of how to build the system from Singapore. The French company POMA had built this with 50 cabins attached, while each cabin can accommodate 8 passengers at a time.

You can buy two different cabins, ordinary and glass-bottomed cabin.

Now we empty our wallet for another must-see in Yeosu, that is Hanwha aqua planet, well simply fish tanks after tanks, this is exactly what it was.

Some unique dolphins, seals and the fantasy shows didn’t actually make us wow but my little girl seems to believe that a mermaid really exist as she saw one swimming in the water with dolphins.
