|Wolmido Island (월미도), located roughly 1km off the coast of Incheon, has since become part of the mainland with the creation of a new highway. The name Wolmido Island comes from the shape of the island as it resembles the tail of a half moon. Thanks to its location near Seoul and the convenient transportation, many people visit here during weekends.
The Culture street starts with the Doodle Pillar, and continues onward to the Meeting Square, Arts Square, Performance Square, Good Harvest Square and several other notable highlights. Throughout these areas, spontaneous performances are performed, and street artists can draw for you on the spot. Moreover, many cafes and seafood restaurants are lined along the coast so you can enjoy the food while viewing the sea.
A must-see attraction on Wolmido Island is "Play Hill". It’s not as large as other theme parks in Korea, but the Apollo Disco and the Viking rides are truly thrilling. The Apollo Disco ride is fun just watching. You can also get on a cruise to look around the island.
