During my summer vacation in Korea, I went to Yongpyong Resort in Gangwon-do. I took KTX from Seoul Station to Jinbu (Odaesan) Station / Jinbu (Odaesan) Station. The KTX fare was 21,900 won, and the journey took one hour and 40 minutes. Afterwards, there is a free shuttle bus to reach the resort, and the transportation is very convenient throughout.
We booked a relatively large family-style suite (390,000 won, because July-August is the peak season), which has two bedrooms, two bathrooms and a large living room. The environment is relatively clean, opposite the mountain, the air is very good, suitable for the whole family to travel, there is also a kitchen in the room for cooking. (Even if you don’t cook, there are many restaurants to choose from.) There are many entertainment programs in the resort, there are stress-relieving sound meditations (recently popular in Korea), and exciting and fun mountain bikes, mountain bikes, and Tobogganing, etc., the cost of each project is basically about 15,000 won, and there is also a cable car to Fawang Mountain (the round-trip cost is 20,000 won). The elevation of Fawang Mountain is 1458 meters. It is suitable for going up the mountain before the evening, so that you can watch the beautiful sunset and the beautiful night view. (Special reminder that the mountain is a bit cold, even in summer, it is recommended to bring an extra coat.) There is a cafe on the top of the mountain where you can drink coffee while watching the scenery, and the price is not expensive.
At night, there are performances by resident singers in the resort, night scenes with lights, and outdoor barbecue (barbecue ends at 9 o'clock) are very good! It is suitable for traveling with friends or traveling with children.
PS: This is also the filming location of the Korean drama "Ghost"
Yongpyong Resort is also a good place where this location is outstanding. The resort has a lot of facilities and settings, and you can see a lot of good things here. Also like some of the good things to visit here.
I was as excited as the kids when I took the cable car in the afternoon on the first day. I played various slides in Snowyland, the snow amusement park. The snow was not soft enough. Christmas themed lights and music seemed to be in a fairy tale.
The next day ⛷ It’s troublesome to wear the equipment before and after skiing, and it’s ugly to take pictures, haha, but it’s very difficult when skiing. I want to play next year.
Yongpyong Resort is quite fun. There are many good ones in the resort. There are many hotels and entertainment facilities in the resort. You can feel a lot of Korean-style things here, as well as delicious food.
Great ski resort, slightly higher price, beautiful scenery
