Sinan County consists of 857 islands distributed across the southwestern part of the Korean peninsula. All islands are connected by bridges or ferries for the convenience of transportation and they are famous with beautiful sceneries and sites. It is 350km away from Seoul (About 3.5 hours by express bus) Sinan has been nominated in the tentative list of UNESCO World Heritage Convention as one part of Southwestern coast tidal flats in Korea. Tidal flats are valuable for marine and life of human being so that they should be conserved and known to public more for that.
