Okpo City and abandoned amusement park
Geoje Island is one of the fastest growing parts of Korea. Its shipbuilding industry surpasses even Busan, and with rumours of an underwater tunnel being built to Japan, this place could one day be a major hub in Korea. One of the larger cities, Okpo, is one of my favourite spots on the peninsula. It is a very modern place with lots of new growth, and plenty of paths along the water. Craziest of all is an abandoned amusement park sitting atop a ridge on the edge of town.
Here is Okpo City from the other side of the harbour.
Down the main street of Okpo, you can find a park and an abandoned amusement park at the very end.
Some hillside farmland.
Taken from the Viking ship of Okpo Land, you can see the city way below.
In the foreground are the skycycle tracks, where it is rumoured one six-year-old girl died in 1999.
The harbour below. In the upper left you can see the ferry to Busan.
The amusement park is very overgrown.
The blue-roofed building is an abandoned swimming pool.
Okpo in the morning.
One of the many hotels newly built in Okpo.
In contrast to Okpo, here's Gujora, a small town about half an hour south.
