Wando Seaweeds Expo 2014, the first international seaweed-themed expo, will take place in Wando-gun, Jeollanam-do from April 11 to May 11, 2014. This time is also a great opportunity to explore Wando because expo ticket holders are entitled to free or discounted admission to some of Wando's tourist attractions.
The main attractions that offer free admission include the Wando Arboretum, Wando Tower, ChangPoGo Memorial Hall and the Wando Fishery and Folklore Museum, among others. Expo ticket holders can also visit the Filming Site of Cheonghae Port and use the passenger boats at discounted prices.
With 20 countries in participation and under the theme "Seaweeds and Their Role in Mankind's Future," the expo will be holding events such as international academic conferences and various exhibits. Hands-on activities include sampling a slow-melting seaweed ice cream, cooking with seaweed, making seashell crafts, and mud flat-related programs.
