Must go: ski resorts (YongPyong resort is the biggest and got great slopes), Korean BBQ and hotpot shops.
Very nice people. A ski resort. Not exactly catered to english speakers so have to ask around for information.
Close to Yongpyeog Resort. The hotel reception can arrange the cab to go to Yongpyeong Resort. From YongPyeong Resort, you can also ask the resorts hotel reception to call the cab for you to return to Alpensia
you can travel out for trout festival during end dec early Jan where you can try ice fishing. It is a fun experience that we really enjoyed :) can try going to korea website for more information on different festival for different months.
You may try ice fishing in Jinbu (near Jinbu bus terminal), just 20 minutes from Hoenggye bus ternmial)
this place will be hosting winter olympic 2108, so the place is well prepared for the event. so we can have better facilities now.
it is good to come during winter as we can experience snow esp we are coming from Malaysia.
We do not have enough time to travel to other places during our visit. The service of the public transport to Holiday Inn Suites is good & friendly although we have a bit difficulty in communicate in English.
The owner of the hotel can communicate with simple English.He is very friendly and helpful. He drove us to the skiing resorts.
He also prepared to take us to the SAM YANG FARM though it was cancelled for his sickness. The HUANG TAE FISH is a famous cusine in HYEONG GYE where our hotel is situated.
If you enjoy outdoor activities and getting away from the city, this is a great place to go. Don't expect much city life here though, if that is what you're looking for then don't go.
But, there are endless and numerous activities ranging from rafting to mountain climbing and everything in between. Also, it's only an hour or so drive to the east coast of Korea, if you want some beach and seaside leisure actitivies to do.
There is much to be done to promote this resort by improving the facilities and amenities. Good to have a outdoor spa resort around this area.
You have to ride your own vehicle to get there, because of the location quite far from Seoul, about 4 hours driving.
Pyeongchang-gun is rather huge. It depends on which month/weather you visit alpensia.I love coming here during winter esp to ski & to enjoy the weather
