Abai Village, Sokcho

3.1
#1 of 6 in Neighborhoods in Gangwon-do
Soak in the peaceful fishing village atmosphere of Abai Village, known for its seafood restaurants and picturesque scenes. During the Korean War, many elderly refugees of North Korea fled here, resulting in its name Abai, meaning "aged person." The village was the backdrop to the extremely popular KBS drama "Autumn in My Heart"; today, you can ride the raft that the main character would regularly use in the show to cross the harbor. The main draw--and the village's livelihood--remains the abundant seafood. Try the popular local delicacy, the Abai sundae: a squid stuffed with clear noodles, tofu, and vegetables. Plan my day in Sokcho using traveler tips and tourist information provided by Inspirock.

  • This may once have been a traditional fishing street within Sokcho but these days the neon and restaurant frontages say tourist not “village”. It’s a short street full of small restaurants. Not really...  more »
  • On the second day of the ivy, i had time until about 17:00, so I was taught as a recommended tourist destination near the city. I got off about 20 minutes by bus, and after a short walk, I got on the boat from the dock like a migratory ship and arrived in about 10 minutes. It was an area with a lot of tourists among the grasses. Ojin Osunde is a famous product and there are many shops here and there. I was at a loss which restaurant to eat. The most popular shop was a queue, so I went to another beautiful shop. It is a shop where a lot of celebrities are coming. I ate Osin Osunde and cold noodles, but the food was exquisite! Corn Maccoli is also the best! I felt elegant though it was cheap. By the way, Abyumaul seems to have a lot of influence of North Korea, and the influence of North Korea is said to be the dish. Abyumaul is like a small island, but there is a small beach and the water was very clean. It is also the place where the fairy tale drama of autumn is taken. We had an event at the dock and enjoyed it for a total of three hours. I recommend that you go to Kusukusa!
