Ulsan’s version of Seoul’s Myeong Dong, this is a funky area that has been revitalized extensively within the last two years. Great shops, boutique cafes, accessory shops, independent coffee bars, vintage clothing shops and a great place with an Indy vibe. Stroll the arcade at night (pictured) and strike up a conversation.
This beautiful beach is located 10 minutes on foot from our East Campus. Great shallow, sandy beach with lots to do in and around the area. Features large restaurants, many American fast food franchises (McDonalds, Pizza Hut, Subway), lots of great street food, game arcades and coffee shops with nice views of the beach.
Located at the east end of Ilsan Beach by following the wooden stairs. This is a great walking and meeting/strolling area with fantastic rock cliffs accessed by a walking bridge (pictured). There is also the Ulgi Lighthouse and some interesting 100 year old pine trees for you to explore. After your walk, relax in the nearby restaurants and coffee shops recently opened at the entrance to Ulgi Park.
Mobile phones are plentiful and commonly used in Korea. Most have various functions such as texting messages, taking pictures and video calling. The major communication companies in Korea are SK Telecom, KT and LG Telecom. Detailed information can be found on each company’s website in English. To buy a mobile phone, foreigners need to submit copies of their passport, foreigner registration card, and other required documents. In the case of using a proxy, that person should bring an ID as well.
