Description
The ministry of Communications, in observance of world tourism day designated by the 1973 general conference of the World Tourism Organization held in Mexico, issues two commemorative postage stamps with Ulleungdo Island and Haeundae Beach as their designs, in the hope that the tourism industry of Korea will further contribute to the continuous development and growth of the country.

1. Ulleung-do Island:
The island, which is composed of rocky mountains of volcanic lavas, is 72.92 square kilometers in area, with Seongin-bong peak standing in the center of the Island, 983 meters above the sea level. Fantastic rocks and stones along the shore present a wonderful view, while giant trees and novel plants, along with camellias and such evergreens as Chinese junipers, add to the attraction of the island which is worth being called a fairy-land like the Sea God's Palace. It also abounds in natural mementoes.

The scene depicted on the stamp includes Gadu-bong Peak and woods of Chinese junipers more than 2000years old, and an overall view of Namyang Samdong(Tonggumi) and its surrounding.

2. Haeundae Beach:
One of the eight most scenic places of Korea, Haeundae, embraces along its foremost beach of soft sand, the beautiful island of Dongbaek(Camellia), hot springs and 1st-class swimming resorts. It is indeed a widely renowned lace of recreation well equipped with top-class hotels and other tourist facilities. Especially, :Hae-un-dae's moon in the evening is so fantastic that it is often mentioned in songs. Since olden times, Haeundae has been konwn as a hot-spring resort, and a number of noblemen, including Queen Seonduk of the Silla Dynasty, loved to visit the beach.
