Jeongdongjin Station, which is listed the Guinness Book of World Records for the closest railroad station to the sea in the world, is the most favorite place for Korean young lovers to visit. The romantic view of the station, which is directly connected to the white sands right after getting off the train, is frequently used as the main background for various dramas and advertisements. Also, in the Hourglass Park beside the station, there is a large hourglass running all year. On December 31st every year, this hourglass turns upside down over a period of 13 minutes when all of the sand has dropped. In addition, at Sunrise Park on the cliffs, which is the best observatory on the east coast, there is an exotic sculpture park surrounded by two huge real cruise vessels (restaurants and condominiums) and coconut palm trees.
