I spent quite a bit of time over on Wolmi Island mainly as I was living in Incheon City so it was walking distance for me to get there. I'm a big fan of carnivals and seaside type, funfair action so this is the reason I ended up there so often!
Wolmido has an interesting and harrowing past in terms of it's wartime history and these days it tends to be a family orientated place popular with tourists and children alike. Aside from the funfair and promenade amusements there is also the traditional Korean gardens in Wolmi Park, a mountain with observatory and a culture centre (where you can even try on some traditional Hanbok and Korean National dress!).
I mainly spent time down near the funfair area which at weekends was packed full of people, exciting rides, candyfloss galore, street vendors selling snacks of dried fish, lemonade and sweet potato fries. The place has a really fun vibe and the atmosphere is happy, brash and loud! It's a worthwhile day trip seeing as it can be easily accessed from Seoul via the Metro (Take the blue line 1 all the way to the final stop 'Incheon' and from there you can take a 10 minute taxi or it's a 25 minute walk~alternatively there are a couple of buses outside of Incheon station but I don't remember the numbers~there is a little tourist office there so they should be able to help you with which bus to hop on!)
There are a zillion and one food options on Wolmi~mainly fish based with touts trying to entice you into their restaurants! The nearby residential areas are interesting to have a wander around as people living there tend to customise their homes with colourful wall murals which was really cool!
Really fun place~ seaside type action, Korean style! Definitely worth a visit if you enjoy noise, bright lights, candyfloss and waltzers!
