Port Pohang (locode KRKPO) is the main seaport in Daegu-Gyeongbuk Region. The city is divided into 2 wards - Nam-gu (southern) and Buk-gu (northern). Pohang is the terminus for several ferry routes serving the cargo and passenger shipping traffic in Japan Sea. The main tourist route includes Liancourt Rocks and Ulleung Island. Pohang is also the northern terminus of Donghae Nambu Line (railway line to Busan). POSCO (Pohang Steel Company) is one of the world's biggest steel production companies.

Pohang's best-known tourist attractions include:

  • Jukdo Market is a large traditional market close to downtown and the seaport. It is popular throughout Korea as a major seafood market. There are many raw-fish restaurants.
  • Bukbu Beach is situated in Duho-dong in the northern part of the city's built-up area. The beachfront was the focus of such developments as restaurants, bars and budget accommodations named Yeogwan. A number East Sea beaches can be found north of the built-up area which includes Wolpo and Chilpo.
  • Homigot, a point of land sticking out into East Sea, lies to the east of urban Pohang, Daebo-myeon. Homigot is among the easternmost points on Korean peninsula and serves every year as the gathering site for thousands to greet the first sunrise of the New Year in Korea. The beach is also home to the sculpture 'Hands of Harmony'.
  • Bogyeongsa is an important Buddhist temple nestled in a steep valley at the foot of 710-metre Mount Naeyeon in Songna-myeon, a region in Pohang's extreme northern part.
