Abai Village, Sokcho

(3.1/5 based on 100+ reviews on the web)
Soak in the peaceful fishing village atmosphere of Abai Village, known for its seafood restaurants and picturesque scenes. During the Korean War, many elderly refugees of North Korea fled here, resulting in its name Abai, meaning "aged person." The village was the backdrop to the extremely popular KBS drama "Autumn in My Heart"; today, you can ride the raft that the main character would regularly use in the show to cross the harbor. The main draw--and the village's livelihood--remains the abundant seafood. Try the popular local delicacy, the Abai sundae: a squid stuffed with clear noodles, tofu, and vegetables. For travelers who use our custom trip planner, Sokcho holidays become easier to arrange, with trips to the Abai Village and other attractions mapped out and timetabled.

  • If you go there, just like a real House called eat a measly referred to look so tasty in!! The sponge boat ride, but ate a sundae! Life soon! If you don't see the car, even to drink rice wine

  • Autumn fairy tales and famous as a place to shoot 2 days 1 night ~ squid Sundae, Abai Sundae, grilled fish, a House packed with quaint houses, where to get the mood going into the central market place-the sponge could be said to take to the streets in a funny ship slowly looking around and see only one place ~!

  • No train from Seoul will arrive about 2 hours 15 minutes by express bus. Near Ocean City offers at the same time village, Mt. snow and sea and mountain attractions.
