Abai Village, Sokcho

3.1
#1 of 6 in Neighborhoods in Gangwon-do
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.

  • Go into the compare. The first time you go eat where the solicitation came out and looked to pick somewhere else is a little more expensive. The taste is similar to what you'd probably be similar? But how do you sell all Abai sundae .. There are so many sick mind to compete.
