Thai-Korean Friendship Bridge

The restoration of Pond I is complete and the area is now open to visitors. The pond, which had been covered with reeds, has recovered its original beauty. The bridge that connects to the islet in the middle of the pond had been originally donated by the Thai government in 1976. Busan Bank donated funds so that the old and unsafe bridge could be replaced by a new one. Visitors are now able to cross the pond and enjoy the view from the islet.
