Nowadays, aside from providing travel convenience and connecting places to places; bridges, being powered with high-technology, have become a favorite subject for aesthetic photos and are now becoming popular as attractions. At 450m long and 11.7m wide, Dolsandaegyo Bridge is the largest cable-stayed bridge in Korea. Since its construction in 1984, the bridge, which connects Yeosu and Dolsan-do Island, has brought commerce and tourism to the island. Today, the bridge itself has become a popular tourist destination, illuminated at night by exterior lighting from the marine park across from the island.
The best thing about this is you can also explore and jump into so many experiences around Yeosu. Just on the side of the bridge is Dolsan-eup known as the raw fish town. On the opposite side is the octagonal pavilion observatory that overlooks the picturesque Yeosu Harbor. Underneath the bridge on the Dolsan-eup side is a cruise ship dock, where visitors will find a replica of the noble Geobokseon (turtle-shaped ship), and may ride a cruise ship to Odongdo Island or Hyangilam Temple on the edge of Dolsan-do Island.
