Welcome to Chuncheon


With several universities Gangwon-do also has a youngish vibe, with a burgeoning shopping and nightlife scene.

On Jungdo, construction on the city's drawcard-to-be Legoland has ground to a halt, and the theme park may never be built, even though the bridge to the city has been completed. The discovery of prehistoric ruins and tombs on the island during foundation construction silenced the jackhammers and concrete mixers, maybe for good.
