Gangneung is one of the largest coastal cities in Gangwon-do and the largest economic center in the Yeongdong region. It is located south of Yangyang and north of Donghae. The Taebaek Mountains, which rise up behind the city, help keep it a bit warmer than coastal cities in the west. And unlike in other parts of the country, the rainy season is in the fall, not the summer. It has no commercial port and not a lot of fishing off its coast. Due to its historical significance and its seaside location, it has become a tourist spot for vacationing Seoulites.
