Korea Destinations: Tongyeong Hansan Battle Festival

Check out the turtle ship replicas at the Tongyeong Hansan Battle Festival this weekend, dedicated to one of the world’s four greatest sea battles.

According to the Tongyeong City website, Hansan Daecheop by the admiral Yi Sun-sin is being evaluated as the best naval battle amongst the four famous world battles of the world by the naval battler experts of the world.

The reason is because the battle of the Admiral Yi Sun-sin was carried out without much help of the country but brought a secession of victories and that the Japanese naval had a long stagnation period of nearly 300 years after they lost to Hansan naval battle, and without the admiral’s victory, the Japanese annexation of Korea that took place in 1910 could have been established 300 years ago.

A variety of hands-on experiences make this festival a fun-for-the-family getaway.
