View Full Version : jjimjilbang in sokcho?

(Actually, I've found one close to the bus station. I'm still open to advice about this though)

After staying in Seoul the last few weeks, let's try for a little adventure this time.
I've done all the research:

Seoraksan trip this weekend (Jan 25-27)

1. Leave Friday evening from Gangbyeon bus station (near the office) 8 pm
2. Arrive past midnight, stay in a nice jjimjilbang near the bus station (10 bucks)
3. Start out early and do a nice panoramic hike at Seoraksan
4. Sleep at a mountain shelter, or back to the jjimjilbang if we can't find any
5. Sunday: a short stroll around the town, or more hiking
6. Back in Seoul by about 5 pm

Let me know if you wish to join. You only live once!

Does anyone know if there is a jjimjilbang in Sokcho (i.e. Seoraksan) I can sleep at, nearby the express bus station? I was thinking about taking the late bus from Seoul on Friday night, and get an early start on Saturday. It would be a reconnaissance mission for an eventual trad. type climb of Ulsanbawi. (remember this thread?)

Sonia? Anyone? I've always heard about the possibility of staying at the jjimjilbangs instead of minbaks; I hope to try it this time.
