This is a very big and old wetland in Korea where migrant birds flock in the winter season. It is very good to walk or to bike around it. You can hire tandem bikes at the entrance.

Upo is unique as one of the only inland wetlands in the country. The location of Upo is very rural, and is relatively unknown even in Korea. The wetland is an important bird sanctuary and has been recognized by Ramsar as of high ecological importance....More
