Soyanggang Sky Walk
Soyanggang Skywalk is an observatory facility set up on Uiamho Lake. The walking path, comprised of transparent glass, is 156m long and offers a thrill to tourists as they feel they are walking over the lake.
And it was featured in drama Switch: Change the World Episode 30, the first scene of Do Chan and Hara walking was made on the sky walk here 🙂
Mulle-gil means “happy waterway” in Korean and Chuncheon Mulle-gil is a great place to enjoy water sports like canoeing and yachting on a beautiful lake and river. Not only this eco-tourism destination offers visitors a chance to surround themselves in an enchanting natural atmosphere, but also a popular filming site for many TV shows and programs.
Myeongdong Dak-Galbi Street
Chuncheon Myeongdong has been known for its famous Dakgalbi (spicy stirfried chicken) and now there are around 25 restaurants in that area. The dish is prepared by marinating chopped chicken in a spicy red pepper paste for about one day and the customers will need to mix the chicken with cabbages, green onions, sweet potatoes and rice cakes when it is served in a large cast iron pan.
Kim You-jeong House of Literature
Known as one of Korea’s leading short story novelists, Kim You-jeong (1908-1937) was born in Sille Village in Sindong-myeong, Chuncheon. A restoration of his birth house, the Kim You-jeong House of Literature is part of an effort to turn the whole village into a literature village in honor of the novelist.
Kim You-jeong spent a great deal of his life in Seoul and returned to his hometown in 1931 at the age of 23. He published his first novel Sangol Nageune (The Wanderer) followed by numerous rural-based novels such as Dongbaekkkot (The Camellias) and Bom bom (Spring).
Gubongsan Cafe Street
Gubongsan Mountain Observatory is one of the most scenic driving courses in Chuncheon, stunning with its breathtaking views both day and night. With fresh brewed coffee in hand, go for a stroll to its outside terrace or garden where you can gaze out on the beauty of Chuncheon. The observatory offers the best spot to see the night view of Chuncheon. Cafes and restaurants decorated with different themes provide good coffee and a great food. You can enjoy sitting on the wooden deck and watching the world around you at its finest.
