Things to See
From the top of Susi Tower, which looks like a flame or sail blowing in the wind, you can see all of Gunsan City, the sea to the south of Gunsan, the mouth of the Geum River, and the giant Janghang smelting factory.
The gardens have been well kept, and 30-year old rattan and cherry trees can be seen.
