For the Oedo option, meet your tour guide at the meeting point and start your journey to Oedo Island. You will first visit Windy Hill at Geoje Island, where you can enjoy the amazing view from the top of the hill, with a classic windmill. Afterwards, take the ferry to Oedo Island from Janseongpo ferry terminal. Upon the guide's recommendation, you can enjoy your lunch here as well. When you arrive, your guide will give you a brief explanation of the geography and history of the island. Enjoy some free time to visit each part of the island, take photos, and enjoy the aromas coming from various flowers and plants. Climb the Stairway to Heaven, and see the magnificent views out over the sea. Leaving the island at around 4:10 PM, you will arrive back in Busan between 6:40 PM and 7:30 PM.

For the Tongyeong option, you will arrive at Tongyeong after an approximately 2-hour drive. Visit Joongang Market, the central market, and Donpirang Village which is filled with interesting murals.
