Here we present the recommended places to take photographs in Gangwon-do, where you cannot resist taking a picture of the breathtaking scenery or where you can take a life portrait that everyone craves!

 

 

Frame-shaped Benches at Gangmun Beach 

 

 

Gangmun Beach has drawn much attention thanks to its uniquely designed benches, which present one of the best photogenic moments for visitors. Couples looking for a snapshot-like a scene from a romantic drama or brides and grooms taking wedding photos can be often found here. 

 

 

The frame-shaped benches allow tourists to take an interesting photo and leisurely enjoy the sea at the same time. You can either appreciate the view framed in these artistic benches facing the East Sea or take a seat and photograph yourself against the sea for a fantastic picture.

 

 

 

Cosmos Field at Gyeongpo Ecological Reservoir

 

 

Who could ever resist not taking a photo at a flower garden? Gangneung, a venue city of PyeongChang 2018, has a cosmos field where you may want to release the shutter against a background. The Gyeongpo Ecological Reservoir is an eco-park created to restore the ecosystem of Gyeongpoho Lake and when fall comes, the cosmoses in a field the size of 17 soccer stadiums all burst into bloom.

 

 

Wherever you go, you can snap a great shot against cosmoses dyed in various colors with a tinge of autumn sunshine, even without the need for any editing. It is a place where you may want to put your special memories into the frame with friends or loved ones. Sadly the late fall makes the flowers all wither away.

You can either appreciate the flowers across the year in the greenhouse or enjoy taking a selfie in the cozy indoor facilities, including the museum and the gallery full of diverse herbs. Its restaurant also offers visually pleasing, tasteful meals made of organically produced herbs, which often wow and entice guests to bring out their cameras as soon as they see it.

The cliff overlooks Korea from the sky! Why don’t you become a Taoist hermit for a while and take a picture of yourself at this end of the world? Jeongseon Skywalk is a famous attraction where you can photograph yourself against the beautiful Korean Peninsula-shaped cliffs that have been shaped by Donggang River, as if you were the landlord of the Korean Peninsula.
