Introduction of Gangwon-do
Located in the mid-eastern part of the Korean peninsula, Gangwon-do is blessed with beautiful mountains (Seoraksan, Chiaksan, Odaesan and Taebaeksan) and clean beaches that offer some of the best sceneries and vacation spots throughout the year. Top summer vacation destinations include Gyeongpo Beach, the largest beach on the east coast, and Jeongdongjin Beach, which lies in front of Jeongdongjin Train Station. The beaches are popular spots for watching sunrise on New Year’s morning as well. Winter in Gangwon-do is heaven for winter sports enthusiasts, as the province gets a lot of snow. Meanwhile, the 2018 Winter Olympics has been scheduled to take place in Pyeongchang, Gangneung, and Jeongseon.
