Watching seagulls at Wolmido on a ferry is an exciting experience as seagulls follow the ferry to get fed by the tourists (they like potato chips) and also to catch fishes thrown up by the turbulent waves at the rear the ferry. To get good photos of the flying seagulls, use a camera that has fast focussing and can shoot... More

There are many public buses that go to the Wolmido from incheon station tourist center that is next to the incheon station. The bus fare is cash 1300₩ or ticket 1100₩ ($1 or $1.20) and taking around 20 min. If you take off the bus at the last place of Wolmido, you start visiting the Wolmido culture street & talking...

It is beautiful. Wolmido Island is a small triangular shaped island only 0.7km (about 4 miles) in area stretching from north to south with Mt. Wolmido as its center. During the Korean War, its beautiful landscape was completely destroyed by bombing, as it was the first destination of the Incheon Operation. It became a base for the U.S. military, both... More

I liked this park but we were unlucky it was foggy. We went observation tower but couldn't see because of fog. Even that walk was good. Couldn't go boat tour. Food was nice in a restaurant.

Wolmido is okay for a last minute outing but I wouldn't plan my week around it. The rides are old. My younger children enjoyed themselves. I recommend bringing cash. The atm is far and hard to find. Our family's favorite ride would be the bumper cars, they were a good four minutes.

Wolmido is one of famous attraction near Seoul city, Korea. You can drop by China town and Animation village together along with Wolmido trip. You should try to ear Jjajangmyun at China town and amusement park in Wolmido is also not the one which is missing. High recommend!!

We were there with a bus load of military retirees. It was too early to eat or shop, but it was a nice morning to walk around the water, looking at all the shell fish offerings of the many restaurants. It's hard to believe that this was a backup landing sight for the Incheon invasion. Many monuments to look at.

Very good place for family with kids. There are a lot of entertainment for kids. A lot of restaurants here. Those who love to eat raw fish can eat here. You can also go for 1 hour ride in ferry.

I love Wolmido Island!!! The sea so calming and refreshing, its very near Seoul so if you plan for a one day trip and you want to enjoy the sea, I suggest go to Incheon to enjoy the Wolmido beach, the local buses take you to Wolmido stop, so its very convenient!!! :D
