The next day we were taking a tour bus to go to a couple different sights that were harder to get to with our tour group. The first stop was Eulsukdo which is a Bird Estuary. Eulsukdo is a huge wetland where lots of migratory birds, deer, fish and other animals live. They have eco tours for tourists and educate the public about the estuary.
If taxidermy creeps you out don't visit here. All the animals on display are stuffed, but they have some really interesting animals that I have only heard of when I came to Korea.
Like the raccoon dog. I guess so weird inbreeding happened there.
I've never seen a vulture up close. They are huge birds!
After walking around the eco centre we walked back to where our bus was. We would be getting in a shuttle bus to go on an eco tour.
Our cute little shuttle bus.
On the tour the other foreigners and I had no idea what we were looking at or what was happening because we didn't understand Korean. We just snapped pictures of whatever the other people were doing.
I can't really tell what kind of birds these are but the white ones look like swans.
There's really not much happening here but it's a nice place to visit if your interested in eco tourism. I wouldn't come here on my own because this doesn't really interest me. But I am glad I experienced it because I would have never done it on my own.
Getting there: Go to Hadan Station (Orange line), and take Exit 5. Take a cab to Eulsukdo or you can take buses 58, 58-1 or 58-2.
