World's largest community-driven hospitality company Airbnb has announced “What’s Trending for Summer on Airbnb.” This year’s trending summer destinations are chosen based on the percentage growth in booking during the same period last year from June to September. Yeosu ranked 8th place, reaching five times the number of reservations compared to last year’s with a growth of 408%. The list’s number one is Valenciennes, France, which had eight times the number of bookings with an increase of 704%.
Some of the major attractions in Yeosu include Odongdo Island, Hyangiram Hermitage, Yeosu Marine Park, and Geumodo Island’s Bireonggil Road. Odongdo Island, located approximately ten minutes from the city’s center, can be reached on foot. With over 3,000 camellia trees spread throughout the island, fully bloomed camellia flowers can be seen in March. The theme park within the island offers a 25-meter high lighthouse, musical fountain, barefoot trail and more.
