Gangneung

Trip Planner Asia  /  South Korea  /  Gangwon-do  /  Gangneung
Beaches Museums Historic Sites
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. With the Inspirock custom trip planner, Gangneung and other destinations across the globe can be made central to your personalized travel plans.

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.
