Yeosu's night sea is famous for its beauty. At Jongpo Marine Park, centred on Yi Sun-shin Square, you can experience the wonderful night-time sea. The view of the sea at night from the Yeosu Maritime Cable Car is especially breath-taking. The Hamel Lighthouse and the Yeosu Expo Marine Park also face the beautiful sea of Yeosu, creating a unique landscape. The night-time view of the sea at Yeosu will feel even more romantic while listening to the music played by the fountain of the Big O in Yeosu Expo Marine Park.

    The Sky Tower Observation Deck is a symbol of Yeosu EXPO Ocean Park along with Big-O Show. This structure, which plays the sounds of a pipe organ five times a day from spring to autumn, was originally a cement silo for Dongyang Cement, but it was remodeled after the Expo 2012 Yeosu Korea was held and transformed into the observatory that you see today. Nothing obstructs your view at the observatory, so you can really appreciate an unhindered view of all of Yeosu's top tourist spots.

Each stop of the Yeosu Marine Cable Car has a beautiful night view, so the waiting time tends to increase in the evening.

The lighthouse has a romantic atmosphere with its red colour contrasting with the blue sea and sky. It’s loved greatly by couples. The nearby Hamel Pavilion is open to the public with no entrance fee, and you can learn historical facts about Hamel's drifting. Also, at night, the lighthouse and Geobukseon Bridge are lit up and really shine, so you can enjoy a beautiful night-time view.

    Yeosu EXPO Ocean Park

    When you get off at Yeosu Expo Station, you can see the entrance to the Yeosu World Expo right across from it, which is still being used as a park. The Big O, installed over the night sea in Yeosu, famous for its beauty, presents a colourful fountain show every evening from April to November. However, some facilities on the site of the marine park, including the Big O and the Sky Tower, charge a fee, so it is better to check in advance.
