A total of 29 tourist attractions in Korea have been designated as barrier-free tourist spots that promote accessible tourism. Accessible tourism refers to the idea of designing tourist destinations and services that are accessible by all tourists regardless of age, race, and disability. In order to provide a barrier-free environment, improvements were made to parking lots, ticket booths and restrooms for convenient access and use of the facilities.

Notable attractions among the 29 include Gaetgol Eco Park in Siheung, Gungnamji Pond in Buyeo, Haeundae Beach in Busan, Oeam Folk Village in Asan, Samrye Culture & Arts Village in Wanju, and Odongdo Island in Yeosu. These attractions have undergone reconstruction of walking paths to provide convenient accessibility for wheelchairs and baby strollers. Also, restroom improvements were made by making accessible ramps and installing grab bars for people with disabilities and the elderly. Lastly, the attractions have installed a large guide map with clear texts and images that are easier on the eyes.
