Saemangeumjeonsigwan (Seawall)

The Saemangeum was an estuarine tidal flat on the coast of the Yellow Sea in South Korea. It was dammed by the government of South Korea in April 2006, after a long fight between the government and environmental activists, and is scheduled to be converted into either agricultural or industrial land.

The Saemangeum lay at the mouths of the Dongjin and Mangyeong Rivers, on the coast of Jeollabuk-do. It is just south of the estuary of the Geum River. Neighboring districts include Gunsan City, Buan County, and Gimje City.

I went there with hubby last time and i was amazed of this seawall that is still under construction but visits by many tourists.

Here's the beautiful sea.

There were boats stocked because they couldn't go to the other side of the sea. I think it's another reason why some people specially fishermen are against of it.
