Ulleung Harbor, North Gyeongsang Province, South Korea.
A secret in a vast sea of secrets, Ulleung Island is one of the most remarkable travel destinations in all of Asia. Gaining popularity among Korean holidaymakers, Ulleung is still generally viewed as a stopover en route to Dokdo Island - a couple of rocks in the Sea of Japan. Ulleung Island has a fascinating harbor where cuttlefish boats come together after long days at sea, a towering mountain peak waiting to be conquered, a picturesque coastline, and a verdant valley perfect for an afternoon picnic.
