What to Expect

During the Gangwon-do Bangtan Beach Tour, we choose our sub characters and nicknames and write them on name tags. And if you answer quizzes correctly, you will be given priority to choose merchandise. Finally, various events such as giving 'transparent photocards 2 sheets', and presenting 'BT21' dolls through a draw will be held as basic travel benefits! Enjoy a comfortable car ride and experience a trip led by real ARMY amidst various events.

Gapyong Rest Area

Gapyong Rest Area offers a fun experience of browsing various stores and taking a break for lunch while looking around here and there, allowing you to have a moment of mental relaxation. A rest area larger in scale than a typical highway rest area, with various convenience facilities, making it particularly crowded with many visitors during peak season. Especially Gapyeong Rest Area is a rest area that Jungkook, known to many ARMYs, has visited. Enjoy the whirlwind potatoes and sweet potato sticks that Jungkook ate at Gapyeong Rest Area!

Hyangho Beach

Hyangho Beach is connected to Jumunjin Beach and is the location where the jacket for the album 'Spring Day' was filmed. Afterwards, it became a must-visit place on a Gangneung trip, and the bus stop was built for filming but still remains as a photo zone. Even if you're not an ARMY, sitting on the bench at the bus stop and taking a photo with the background of the East Sea gives off a feeling as if it was taken at a secluded beach in the United States, which is why it's popular among many visitors.

Kangneung Central Market

Gangneung Central Market is a global cultural traditional market with cultural experience spaces. It is a delightful cultural space that includes a fish museum, night market, food festivals, specialty streets, multilingual shopping malls, and art lighting. Especially with its abundance of food, you can enjoy with your eyes, nose, and mouth. The main features of Jungang Market are the active trading of local specialties and unique products, and both the population of Gangneung city center and the population of fishing villages along the East Coast frequently visit Jungang Market.

Maengbang Beach

The Maengbang Beach, located about 7km from downtown Samcheok, is the filming location of BTS's song 'Butter' album. The colors of the sunbeds and parasols on the beach are unique and beautiful, making it a place that catches the eye from afar. The operating hours of the Parasol Photo Zone are from 10am to 5pm, and afterwards they are folded to prevent them from being blown away by the wind, so please take note!
