Gangneung

4
A large coastal city, Gangneung has been historically separated from much of the country because of the long, stretching mountain range that runs parallel to the sea. This has allowed the city to retain aspects of its distinct culture, in a number of festivals and in the distinctive architectural style of the well-preserved buildings. Trips to Gangneung offer the chance explore the local culture through visits to museums, temples, and shopping streets, and to lap up the scenery down by the coast, where the sandy beaches offer extensive views of dramatic sunsets. Gangneung is in Gangwon-do. Take stress off the schedule by using our South Korea road trip site .

Where to stay in Gangneung

Gangneung offers a little rest and relaxation for many residents of the capital, so you'll find a good number of established accommodations here. The Gyeongpo Beach area has a welcome number of seafront hotels, from sprawling resorts to humbler guesthouses and the odd motel. The urban areas further inland feature several clusters of commercial and touristy developments, usually pretty close to the main train stations, with a good mix of standard hotels and guesthouses found here.
