Famous site

This is probably the most famous site in Gangneung. However, you will not see many tourists especially during the winter! You can enjoy the view of lake.

This place is really pretty during the Cherry blossom season. Although it rained when I visited, it was still worth the visit. There wasn't too much walking involved so it's really perfect for families to visit.
