11 Things to do in Pohang

 

1. Take a surf lesson at Yeongilman (영일만, 서핑 포항).

2. Go to Chilpo-ri Temple (칠포리).  From Shiwae Bus Terminal, go to Heunghae Transfer Center ( bus 100, 500, or 107). There is a country bus without a number you can take from the Heunghae Transfer Center Stop. Ask the driver to stop at Chilpo. The bus runs once/ hour. The 500 and 510 go to Wolpo beach too.

3. Go to Bogyeongsa Temple/ hike the 12 waterfalls (보경사). Hop on the 510 bus from Shiwae Bus terminal- it ends at Bogyeongsa.

4. Visit the Homigot Hand & Guryonpo’s Japanese Street (호미곶/ 구룐포). Take the 200 bus – get off at Guryongpo transfer centre(구룡포환승센터) – then take the “Homigot” bus (호미곶 – there’s no number). Ask the driver to tell you where to get off (but it should be obvious).

5. Go to Jangsa Beach (장사리) – the best beach in Pohang. Buy a ticket at Shiwae Bus Terminal and ask the driver to stop at Jangsa. The journey takes about an hour depending on traffic. Buy your return ticket at the shop next to the convenience store opposite the beach (use the tunnel that connects the beach to the town).

6. Attend an orchestra performance. Bus 200 goes there from Shiwae Bus Terminal.

7. Attend a baseball game– Samsung Lions. Bus 200 goes there from Shiwae Bus Terminal.

8. Attend a soccer game – Pohang Steelers. Bus 200 goes there from Shiwae Bus Terminal.

9. Shop at Jukdo Market (포항죽도). Most buses pass by Jukdo Market.

10. Stay awake all night, party at Tilt and watch the sun rise (포항틸트). Naver has all the bus details!

11. Eat Haemul (cold noodles, grated pear and sashimi) (포항해물). It’s off the hook tasty! There are loads of restaurants that serve Haemul along Pohang’s main beach “Bukbu”, now known as Yeongildae.
