Seoul will forever be the number 1 tourist spot in Korea, and for obvious reasons. It’s nightlife is unbeatable, you can get pretty much anything delivered anytime any place, and everything is ridiculously efficient.
But these days, Gangwon-do province seems to be the new up-and-coming place to visit for both Koreans and foreigners alike. Here’s why.
1. It’s Hosting The Winter Olympic Games In 2018
Pyeongchang, Gangwon-do is the location of the 2018 Winter Olympics – for more information about Olympics in South Korea click here!
2. Seoraksan National Park Is Absolutely Stunning.
Though Busan remains the travel hotspot for those wanting to get away from the hustle bustle of the city life and to the relaxing beaches in the summer months, you’ll often find yourself fighting for elbow room on their beaches. In Gangwon-do, however, you’ll be able to relax in a much less crowded and more peaceful version of what the beaches on the East coast will offer you.
If you’ve been living in Korea for a while and haven’t brought yourself to travel outside your city, then start with Gangwon-do. It’s easy to get to, absolutely gorgeous, and offers no shortage of places to see and things to do.
