Ulsan is Korea’s smallest metropolitan city with a population of 1.2 million people. The city is located in the southeast corner of the Korean peninsula, right next to Busan on the East Sea (also known as the Sea of Japan). Due to its southern coastal location, Ulsan residents get to enjoy mild winters and beautiful weather in the spring, summer and fall.
Traditionally, Ulsan’s been recognized as an industrial port city. Car and auto parts manufactures dot the inland industrial areas of the city while ship building companies line the coastal region. The world’s largest cargo ship manufacturers are located in Ulsan. Although part of the city is home to large industrial facilities, city planners created a green belt which divides the metropolitan core, industrial spaces and agricultural areas.
More recently Ulsan has made major steps to modernize its image as a cultural city and country wide tourist destination; most notably for Gangdong Seashore, a large beach lined with smooth black ball shaped pebbles.
