On the southern coast of Korea, Suncheonman Bay is one of the country’s natural wonders. The coastal wetlands are famous for an astounding variety of flora and fauna, and huge golden reeds, taller than humans. The wetlands are of special interest to birders, with some 140 species of migratory birds passing through. There’s an abundance of cranes (including the hooded crane, a symbol of Korea), geese, and swan. The park is open daily from 8 am to sunset, usually a spectacular sight with the sea of reeds waving in the wind and the ocean reflecting the scarlet skies.
