Sokcho

3.7
Tourism in Sokcho mostly revolves around the local national park, a UNESCO Biosphere Reserve. The park and other scenic areas represent the main attractions of Sokcho, where the valley, cliffs, hot springs, and waterfalls inland complement the rugged headlands and beaches of the coast. Culturally speaking, the far northern city includes a village set up to house refugees from North Korea, and many residents here have relatives in the neighboring nation. A trip to Sokcho should also include sampling the local cuisine in one of the numerous restaurants--try the raw or grilled fish, highly regarded on a national level. Sokcho is in Gangwon-do.
