Introducing Gangneung

Gangneung is the largest city on the northeast coast of Korea and hosts an annual Dano Festival, held for the past 400 years. It is the gateway to Jeongdongjin beach, Odaesan National Park and Korea’s top ski resort, YongPyong. It’s also pretty in itself, with a lagoon, beach, ‘tofu town’ and more.

The main tourist information centre (640 4414; www.gntour.go.kr; 8am-10pm) is near the bus terminal and there is a smaller booth in front of the train station. They have both English- and Japanese-speaking staff.
