Seosan, Chungnam where you can see the rich nature. Seosan is the place where you can meet sea creatures, migratory birds and their stories from the vast tidal flats, and play freely in the fields in the old castle. Children's dreams will shine on brightly lit planets with pouring stars. Seosan is a place that presents health to children with natural spices instead of artificial sweeteners.
"Mom, I found the clams again!", Jungliao Village Experience Village
'Tidal Flat', where the sea water is missing, transforms into the best natural learning place. Located in Jigok-myeon, Seosan-si, 'Jerieo Village Experience Village' is one of the world's top five clean tidal flats and is full of various attractions, food, and experiences, making it a perfect place for families traveling with children.
Jungliao Village Experience Village located in Jigok-myeon, Seosan-si
This small fishing village with about 170 people in 120 households was introduced to KBS2 '1 night 2 days' program and was widely known.
Jungliao Village Experience Village Office
Children enter the tidal flats in Garorim Bay and are excited first.
Tidal flat experience boots
Accept boots, hoe, and mesh that fit your feet, and hold your hands as you go to tidal flat.
Children walking to the tidal flat
From the experience office, take the electric cart to the tidal flat, and even if you dig a little bit of soil with a hoe, the tight clams pour out.
Electric cart for tidal movement
One year, there were so many clams that I couldn't control even if I didn't buy it.
Children picking up clams with a hoe
The place where there are many clams is called 'pants' base, but when you walk there, the sound of 'pants and pants' sounds at your feet.
A family unit experience visitor who visited Jung-ri village on the weekend
Avoid the place where the water is filled because the boots are easy to fall into the tidal flat. If there is a guardian, it is an experience without age restrictions.
Hand-picked clams
In addition, there are various programs such as 뻘 octopus experience, foot net experience, and can train ride experience.
A child who washes his clams out in sea water
After the experience, you can wash the mud at the waterside and change children's clothes on the 2nd floor of the Fishermen's Happiness Hall next to the experience office.
Kid washing the mud
Make sure you have a plastic bag to hold your spare clothes and dirty clothes. It is also a good idea to bring a snack for the child who will go out after the experience.
Feeding room and fishermen's hall where you can return
Here is not the end. There is a village tour by electric train. In the Seosan Creative Art Village, which transformed the closed school into an art space, all exhibits that recycled the scraps are spread across the playground.
Seosan Creative Art Village
It is also possible to experience salting. It is a natural learning ground by collecting white grains of salt, entering a salt warehouse and touching natural salt.

Seosan Citizen's Garden, Central Lake Park
Jungang Lake Park is a garden of Seosan and a resting place for citizens. It is a place to relax for a while while traveling to Seosan. You can take a baby stroller and walk on the deck.
Seosan Garden, Jungang Lake Park
There are restaurants, convenience facilities, and cafes for infants and toddlers nearby. In the cafe for infants and toddlers, the beautiful scenery of Joongang Lake Park can be seen at a glance.
Inside the cafe for infants and toddlers
It is also a place where children can eat, toys, and a variety of items to cope with emergencies.
Sale of various baby goods in cafes
Migratory Bird Sanctuary, Seosan Bird Land
After passing through the Ganwol Intersection, you can see a pyramid decorated with colorful glass. It is a signboard of birds flying away from the cold in Siberia.
Seosan Bird Land
Seosan Birdland is a platform that protects only the world-famous migratory bird, Cheonsu, and meets birds.
Electric vehicles used by families
At the Migratory Bird Museum, you can meet about 200 kinds of stuffed migratory birds, including the typical migratory birds that visit Cheonsu Bay, such as Gachang Duck, Big Geese, and Yellow Beak Spoonbill.
Inside the Migratory Museum
Be sure to listen to the funny stories of the birds from the ecological commentator. (From 11:00, you can listen to the comment for about 20 minutes at every hour except lunch time.)
Children experiencing multimedia (people and birds)
Just as children memorize difficult dinosaur names for adults, birds are surprisingly well distinguished by adults.
Tree of central stairs
Following the guideline marked with a new footstep, the children see their colorful birds, flap their arms and flap.
A child experiencing multimedia (a bird in culture and art)
On the stairs leading to the exhibition hall on the 2nd floor, you can see birds flying, flowers and trees growing with multi-vision installed on the wall.
A child who chooses experience materials
Children's favorite space is just going up and down.
Children who experience coloring
Various experience classes are also available. During the experience of making new models, making ecological clocks, matching puzzles, and tactile play boxes, the ecological interpreter helps children experience and tells new stories related to them.
Complete the mirror making experience
Inside the Pyramid is a 4D movie theater that shows animations (about 17 minutes) on topics related to birds. It is a place where children are most excited by adding realistic experiences such as vibration, water, and wind in existing 3D movies. Admission is restricted for infants, pregnant women, and patients with heart history less than 36 months old.
4D movie theater
The nest observatory is made of circular spaces of various sizes that symbolize migratory birds. As you climb, only Cheonsu spreads out. Cheonsuman literally means shallow sea, shallow water, literally shallow water.
Exhibition Hall and Nest Observatory
It is now a reclamation site made by filling tidal flats. It has become a farmland where 500,000 people can eat rice for a year. So, winter migratory birds fly to Cheonsu Bay, which has abundant prey. The residents do not forget to care for taking care of the birds of prey by deliberately placing them. Don't miss Seosan Birdland, where you can learn how to grow with nature through stories of birds that are always close to us.

Ganwolam, hermitage floating on water
It takes about 10 minutes by car to arrive at Ganwol-do.
Gwanwolam, High tide
Ganwol-do was the passage of the Goryeo era messengers to the Song Dynasty or the Song Dynasty messengers from Nanjing to the land of Goryeo.
Hermitage floating on the water, Ganwolam
I'm looking for Ganwol-do because of Ganwol-am, which can be found twice a day if the seawater falls. It is famous for hermitage floating on the water.
Ganwolam, where the road was revealed at low tide
Ganwolam erected a hermitage to commemorate the Buddha's success, where Mangung Mangung, who revived Sudeoksa Temple, was here.
Ganwolam Precinct
It is also good to see Gwanwol Island, which is also proud of the West Coast and Seosan. As the children feel cold in the sea breeze, prepare a windscreen or thick clothes. To go to Ganwolam, you need to get a good time. You can also kindly inquire at the Tourism Division of Seosan City before your visit, and be sure to check it out when searching through the Internet.
Ganwolam Sunset
There are a lot of 'Eori Guljeot' sold at the entrance to Ganwoldo. Oysters stop growing when the seawater is drained. In Gwanwol-do, where the difference between the tide and the tide is large, they are buried in the tidal flat for 4 to 7 hours, receiving sunlight, and they are much more savory than other local oysters due to the moderate temperature and salinity. Children don't know the salty salty taste yet, but it's a delicacy for adults traveling together.

Starry Night, Seosan-ryu Bangtaek Astronomical Meteorological Museum
It is too early to turn to the hostel. It's time to see the stars and shining planets that fill the night sky of Seosan.
Seosan Ryubang Astronomical Meteorological Museum
Seosan Ryubangtaek Astronomical Meteorological Museum is not well known, but if you go there, you will be surprised by Ryu Bangtaek's achievements.
Photo zone at the entrance
Let's open the back of the ten thousand won bill in your wallet. If you look closely at the background pattern, you can see the map of the celestial train field, the main astronomical map of Joseon, behind Honcheon. This map, designated as National Treasure No. 228, was produced by a teacher named Geum Heon Ryu Bang-taek from Seosan, Chungnam. It is the second oldest in the world to depict the entire sky, and it is the first Jeoncheon Seokgakdo to express its size differently according to the brightness of the stars. You can learn more in the exhibition room on the first floor, which is free of charge.
The Big Dipper of the Heavenly Train Field Map
The first floor consists of an astronomical projection room, an exhibition education room, and a chromakey experience space. You can observe the sunspots and red flames of the ocean and various astronomical objects in the main observation room and auxiliary observation room on the second floor.
Auxiliary observation room
Admission is 3,000 won for adults and children under 6 are free. It can be used from 2pm to 10pm during the winter season (September to April), and from 3pm to 11pm during the summer season (May to August). However, since daily observations vary depending on the weather, check by phone before visiting.
1st floor exhibition hall
Again At Park Myeong hours (17: 30 ~ 19: 30), neither the stars nor the sun can be observed, so you can only see the permanent exhibition hall. Infants under the age of 36 months are not admitted to the astronomical observation room and the astronomical projection room.

Haemi-eup Castle, a playground in the wall that seems to have stopped time

Seosanhaemi-eupseong, one of the representative cities of Korea, is located in Haemi, which means that the sea is beautiful.

Haemi-eupseong Fortress
In 1416, Taejong was staying in Haemi for a day after doing military training at Dobisan in Seosan.

It boasts the most complete form of the castle. If you look at the castle stone on the outer wall of the castle, each village name, such as Gongju, Cheongju, and Imcheon, is engraved.

The name of the village 'Princess' engraved on the castle wall
After passing the main gate of the castle, Jinnammun, you can see painting trees and jade in a straight line, and Dongheon and guest houses are at the end.
Haemi-eupseong Painting Tree
Because the children are good to play like in a field, there are many group tours from the nearby daycare centers.
Eupseong Guest House
You can also take a stroll around the town with children in a flower cart.
Children who come as a group
Every Saturday from April to October, there are performances such as North Korea, Samulnori, and tightrope walking. Folk games and folk experiences are also free.
Couple of haemicheon riverside
From March to October, it is open until 9:00 pm, and you can tour the town from late. In addition, there are many restaurants nearby, and you can take a walk around the Haemicheon River, making it a popular spot for citizens.
