I've recently come across some very nice pictorial toursof some of the many beautiful places along the east coast of our province.
Ulleung Island is about as remote as you cn get in Korea, since these rocks are stuck all by themselves (along with the infamous Dokdo) in the middle of the East Sea (aka the Sea of Japan to those of you who live in China, Vietnam, or Northern Europe, and to whom the East Sea refers to other bodies of water).
My wife has been there, and does not wish to go back, due to the severe seasickness she suffered on the speedboat. If I go, it will be solo.
The best pictorial I have found is
Lao Ocean Girl's Ulleung-do Album
there's more at
haunting ulleung island
and if you go you'll find a few secret treasures at
And a site with so-so visitor photos:
Stefano in Corea
As well, there is a nice park next to Gangneung's Gyungpo Beach--it's especially nice in the spring for seeing the cherry blossoms.
Check it out in the fall at Wild Korea.
Jus a bit of what you might see if you decide to visit our lonely province!
