"Where foreigners stay while on Geoje" Okp'o-dong by DSwede
Okp'o-dong Travel Guide: 20 reviews and 26 photos
Okpo-dong is the home to the largest shipyard on Geoje-do (visit my Geoje Island page for more comments about the vicinity).
Due to the industry associated with the shipyard, Okpo is home to many foreigners and business travelers. With this, it will be the most comfortable area for foreigners to stay due to restaurant options, hotels, western bars, etc.
The town itself may be the center to rest and feed yourself, but if visiting, the sites to see are spread on the rest of the island.
- Pros:There is a large influx of foreigners working in the port area, so western amenities are easier to find.
- Cons:While here, you will most likely be confused as being a shipyard inspector or engineer.
- In a nutshell:A very blue collar town in the shipbuilding industry, with ties to old POW camps.
Having spent too much time in Korea, I often get cravings for some comfort foods of the west. I do not visit fast food... more travel advice
