The 23rd Chindo Yongdung Festival
May 3 ~ May 6, 2000

If your want experience of crossing from one island to another on dry land, do not miss this festival.

It is held at the time when tide drops six or seven meters to part the sea between Chindo and Modo Islands, often compared to Moses' miracle.

Admiring this eye-opening, spectators walk across the seabed gathering brown seaweed, turban shells, clams, octopus and various preth shells.
