Kick back amidst the tranquil settings of Ansan Reed Marsh with slow promenades by rippling waters and quiet moments of introspection. Founded as the one of Korea’s first large-scale wetlands, the treatment facility is home to numerous reeds and aquatic plants that organically improve water streaming into Sihwaho Lake. Next, fill rumbling tummies with a Korean barbecue feast featuring a slew of traditional dishes and porcine flavours, before paying homage to General Lee Sun-Shin, one of the country’s most decorated navy commanders at Hyeonchungsa Shrine. Learn about his life at Sipkyeongdo, a pictorial biography complete with some of the general’s prised possessions such as his long sword, diary, and more. Stroll through Hongsal Gate at the shrine, where a portrait of General Lee Sun-Shin made completely of Korean Cheonggiwa tiles and iron-reinforced concrete lies within one’s line of vision, then explore the surroundings of his childhood home, before ending the day by relaxing by the silvery Yeonji Pond and lush greenery.
