What is there to say? It's a tower in Sokcho. It looks kind of cool, but there's nothing really going here.

Went to a nearby restaurant for dinner and happened to pass by this place. It happens to be in a quiet (and empty) town of Sokcho and also there happens to have a kpop festival there the next day. It also offers great views.

Sokcho Expo Tower area not far from the city, beautiful lake side and garden. You can walk around the Cheongchoho Lake side to Sinsuro Arched Brigde, next to Abai Village under the brigde. Beautiful view and nice to walk around.

Built fir the 1999 travel expo this tower has a view over the harbour and the mountain. Admission is not expensive and the external elevator is interesting.

Please visit here if you go Mt. Seoraksan and Daeport. Sokcho has also delicious food zone. If you make some combination, it will be a good tour.
