Places to visit near Elysian Gangchon Ski Resort


1. Nami Island

Nami Island, covered by the white snow blanket, cannot be more romantic in winter. No wonder the half-moon shaped island is loved by a lot of international travelers as well as local people in Korea. The cold temperature may give you chills, but this poetic scenery will warm your heart up.

2. Garden of Morning Calm

This dreamlike scenery is what you will witness when visiting the Garden of Morning Calm in winter. Illuminated by 30,000 lights, the whole garden, tucked in the deep valley of mountains, shines under the dark sky. On every step forward, you’ll hear snow squeak under your feet and see the lights change their colors as you move.

3. Petite France

Doesn’t this place look familiar to you? If you have watched the hit K-drama “My Love from the Star”, you’ll be able to recognize it in a few seconds. Yes, this is the place where Do Min-joon, the alien, casts a spell that lights up the buildings around and makes Cheon Song-yi fly to kiss him. If you’re a fan of “My Love from the Star”, don’t miss out on Petite France during your visit to Korea!

4. Hwacheon Sancheoneo Ice Festival 2018 (Jan 6~28)

Here is another one-of-a-kind experience you can have in Korea’s winter: sitting on a frozen lake, making a hole in the ice, and catching fish through it.
