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.

  • It is famous because it was used in the filming of the drama. Let's ride Cappe Cappe even better is that we came from! My grandfather often mean, not squid sundae (strong in Japan and Korea version squid rice) of stores only. All travel to Gangwon-do road tour of the graces the Korean big brother is gone, but the best reputation by word of mouth site 진양 횟집 (じにゃ I'm from Puffy) to went. Squid sundae are very good at is, and... I gingerly ate this horse?! It is too fresh, its not. Blame both lightened the morning you ate more than 150000 won by two people. This area is between the old and half of the vocabulary is often towards North Korea's Korea language, intonation. I can hear the Korea language usually heard and reference it accordingly. I from my aunt lived next door in Japan 40 years ago, 0 since Korea, mouth so I could see all meaning, not knowing he is taught "Korea to you once in a while a gigibaba?!" and I have been impressed with. Japan to speak often that North Korea have a family because the accent is such a place, talk to their 80s or older. Let's read the etiquette when I went to Korea out guidebooks and the Internet because it is a delicate area.

  • Its a residence area than a tourist place. All they have are some tourist restaurants. The view of the beach was nice though.
