The rich repository of the ecological environemnt, Ganghwa Tideland Center suggests the future of Ganghwa’s environment.


Ganghwa-do is the island of the tideland. It is the passage of fresh water affected by Han-river, Yeseong-river and Imjin-river, and seawater, materials from the river are deposited in the far sea when the tide is on the ebb, and tidal sand ridges are accumulated around the island at a rising tide. Moreover, it has advantageous conditions to develop the tideland, such as a lot of islands, indented coastlines, and many bays that the sea surface is gentle. The southern of Ganghwa tideland was designated as the No.419 natural monument, and it is 52.8 times as big as Yeuido. Especially, the southwest area of tideland, from Yeochari, Dongmakri to Dongeomri, accounts for 86 per cent of the whole tideland of Ganghwa. So, Ganghwa County established  the eco-friendly log tideland center to look down Yeochari tideland at a glance.



It is the educational space to experience the natural ecology of the Ganghwa tideland with five senses. There are the three-dimensional kaleidoscope to see various creatures living in the tideland, the exhibition hall to introduce the four seasons of the Ganghwa tideland, and the observation deck to observe various wild birds of the Ganghwa tideland through a telescope. Its interior is also unique. There are diverse marine life models embossed on the wall of the stairway from a basement to the second floor, and you can touch it. It is another pleasure to take a walk on the promenade along the seashore.
