Yesterday I mentioned Pyeongchang and the ice fishing. Well, not too far from there you will find the city of Gangneung, which is where the indoor sports will be held (curling, ice hockey, etc). It's right on the coast so the most popular place to visit in the area is actually Gyeongpo Beach. Doesn't it look beautiful! Sure, it'll be freezing in winter but you can go swimming in summer or enjoy the Festival of Cherry Blossoms in Spring (I desperately want to see cherry blossoms!). There are also old cultural buildings in the area to explore, if you're not a beach person. You'll find lots of info at the Visit Korea website (english.visitkorea.or.kr) and FB page so definitely check them out when you're planning your visit!
