This photo, taken on July 27, 2021, shows a tidal flat in Sinan, South Jeolla Province, southwestern South Korea. At a session in the southeastern Chinese coastal city of Fuzhou the previous day, the World Heritage Committee, a UNESCO-backed intergovernmental body, decided to list as South Korea's second World Natural Heritage Site four tidal flats, called "getbol" in Korean, along the country's southwestern coastal areas. The four comprised ones in Seocheon, South Chungcheong Province; Gochang, North Jeolla Province; Sinan, South Jeolla Province; and Boseong-Suncheon, South Jeolla Province. (Yonhap)
