Some of the popular facilities of Yeosu Expo will be available again for 6 months during the Suncheonman Garden Expo.

From April 20 to October 20 (6 months), the 2012 Yeosu Expo venue will reopen under the name of “Expo Marine Park”. Some facilities that received good response during the Expo period last year such as the Big-O, Sky Tower, and Expo Digital Gallery will be available again to the public. In particular, Yeosu Expo’s iconic attraction, the Big-O, was highly acclaimed by both locals and international tourists for its gigantic multimedia fountain shows on water.

Admission to the Expo Marine Park is free, but fees may apply for admission to some of the facilities. Travel time from Yeosu to Suncheon takes approximately 1 hour by car.
