Gangneung is located in the east coast of Gangwon-do. It takes three hours ride from Seoul.
It has been one of the popular destinations on summer season because of its beaches and great view.
GYEONGPO BEACH in Gangneung is famous for its striking sunrise and amicable moonrise. Koreans drag themselves here to behold the first sunrise every New Year.
Aside from the beach, a picturesque sight of Suncruise Hotel & Yacht becomes renowned here. A bizarre architectural design of a ship on top of a cliff makes it a stupendous landscape.
We took the visit on early autumn season. The place is almost empty of beach goers but we did enjoy the sight of the blue sea and the light waves that plunged into the rocks sounds music to my ears.
