In Ulsan is built the largest port, which can simultaneously berth about 90 large ships.

Ulsаn is known as the city that in the past was the center of Korea`s whaling town, near the which is located the oldest lighthouse in Korea. In fact, there are actually two beacons: Kanchzholgot and Ulgen. Both are served, although these beacons in South Korea less than 8% of the total. Each of them is interesting in its own way.

Beacon Kahchzholgot is located on a promontory of the same name, and on top of a hill. By virtue of local geography and altitude it is the point in Korea where the dawn comes earlier than in another parts of Korea. That is, if the weather allows there can be seen the sun before all the people on the Korean Peninsulа, in the Korea Republic.

The Ulgen beacon is famous because it is one of the oldest light-beacon in Korea. it was built by Japanese in 1906th, the lighthouse has two rowers now-the old and the new, 6 and 24-meters high respectively. It is located in the Ulgen park, which is one of the most popular tourists destinations in the South Korea.

In Ulsаn is also one the most popular sight of Korea-the big  sand and pebble Ilsan beach with the clean cool water, surrounded by wild flowers(stretching more than a kilometer). It is argued that this beach is loved to visit by the royal dynasty of Silla.
