Some Things Look Better From Afar

Famous Observatories of Incheon:
Travel lets you get away from everything and look at your life with a fresh perspective.
Some things look better from afar. Get away from all of the hassles of life. Image you’re holding a cup of hot coffee in your hand and looking out through the window at night from a sky lounge. What a view! If you would like to refresh yourself, come to Incheon and visit one of its famous observatories.
G-Tower Observatory
G-Tower is located in Songdo International City near Central Park. From its observatory on the 33rd floor, you can overlook Songdo International City, the West Sea, and Incheondaegyo Bridge. Come to the observatory at sunset. Look at the sky and the sea. You will be just overwhelmed by the absolute beauty of nature. As the night begins to fall, the luxury of the night landscape of the international city rushes to the peak. Enjoy the dramatic contrast of lights and darkness under your feet. You will be lost for words.
(Hours of Operation-10:00~20:00)
Oceanscope, Incheondaegyo Bridge Observatory
Made of containers, Oceanscope attracts visitors’ attention with its unique exterior design. In Oceanscope, containers constitute an observatory and serve as a telescope, too. Climb stairs built inside the containers. Though not so high, the observatory enables you to view the West Sea. What you will remember the most from the place could be your high anticipations that you had while climbing the stairs and the rather open landscape towards the open sea you saw from the observatory.
Wolmi Observatory
Come to Wolmi Observatory. From there, houses and vehicles at the foot of Wolmi Park look like small match boxes. Surprisingly, the entire city looks tiny, indeed. They say the higher you go up, the wider your perspective gets and the more generous you get. Large container vessels at Incheon Port, which carry hundreds of containers each, have become tiny enough for me to cover them all with one of my hands at the observatory. Will our worries, so large nearby, become tiny when we look at them from afar? The view from Wolmi Observatory seems to shout that we have to look at things from farther away, with a broader perspective, with more courage.
Aramaru Observatory
The floor of Aramaru Observatory is tempered glass through which you can look down Ara Waterway far below. Walk along the round observatory and feel as if you were walking above the clouds. Feel "free from all ideas and thoughts" looking at the sky and the water below your feet combined into one.
Maebawi Observatory in Daecheongdo Island
From Maebawi (literally "a hawk rock") Observatory in Daecheongdo Island, you will see a coastline resembling a hawk's open wings. You can witness the truly magnificent beauty of the island only from the observatory. People say that indeed the island was home to numerous ferocious hawks until some time ago. How beautiful would it be if we could fly high and look at the world from above? Come to Daecheongdo Island. Look down like a hawk from Maebawi Observatory. You will never forget the scenery.
Sunset Observatory in Daecheongdo Island
From Sunset Observatory in Daecheongdo Island, you can see the perfect balance between open seas and incredible cliffs of the island. Out of numerous cliffs, the biggest and the most wonderful one is called 'Seopungbaji (literally "the West Wind Barrier") which awes all visitors. You can see traces of its fight against the wind and waves all over the huge cliff.
Nakjodae Overlook in Deokjeokdo Island
In the moment of sunset, hold your breath and look at the sky. All of a sudden, the sun disappears as if drawn into the water by some mysterious power. You cannot look away from the spot for while because of the lingering image of the majestic sun. In Nakjodae Overlook of Deokjeokdo Island, you witness the sunset with the same emotion that you feel when you send your love away. The memory will linger for a long time not in your eyes but in your heart and soul.
