Jeollanam-do, or the Southern Jeolla Province, Jeonnam in short, is the least populous district in mainland Korea, excluding Jeju Island. The capital city of the province, Yeosu houses only up to 300,000 people. Along the beaches of the province lies several islands which are both isolated, and inhabited.
Yeosu was famous for hosting the International Yeosu Expo back in 2012, and the night-beach of Yeosu has always been a popular, romantic destination for couples. Other notable cities include Boseong, for its Green Tea plantations and farms. Finally, Goheung City was famous for being the launch destination for the Naro-ho Space Rocket, the first ever Satellite Rocket fired by Korea into Space.
