Destination: Orchid Garden / Exhibition Hall (Mokpo, Jeollanam-do)



If you're exploring Mokpo for any length of time, Yudalsan will show up on your list of places to see.

It's far from a popular tourist destination, however. Get up to the garden and enjoy the views, almost entirely to yourself:


Destination: Yudalsan International Sculpture Park (Mokpo, Jeollanam-do)



The Lady in Red is both an artist and a lover of sculptures. Thus while in town to see Bigeumdo off the coast of Mokpo, we made it a point to search for this place.
