Located at the tip of Korea's southwestern coastal region, Mokpo is a small but important trade port city, and connects the peninsula to Jeju-do Island. The Mokpo City Tour takes visitors all over town, stopping at points of interest to allow visitors to explore the areas on foot. The old town area around Yudalsan Mountain is of particular interest, featuring architecture that dates back to the industrialization period of the early 1900s. On Culture Street, popular attractions include Gatbawi Rock, a prominent natural monument, as well as a number of cultural experiences offered at the National Maritime Museum, the Natural History Museum, the Ceramic Living ware Museum, and the Culture Arts Center.
