Hoengseong is a county in Gangwon. It is known for its clean environment and its cattle industry.

Get in[edit]

Hoengseong borders on Wonju City, the most populated city in Gangwon-do.

By Train[edit]

A KTX will connect Wonju to Seoul and Pyeongchang in time for the 2018 Winter Olympics, but for now the only option is a regular-speed train on the Jungang Line, which can be caught at Cheongnyangni Station in Seoul.

By Bus[edit]

Hoengseong is a remote place. Travelling from many major cities, you may have to transfer. Direct bus service is offered from Chuncheon, Wonju, Cheongju, Gangneung, and Daejeon.

By Car[edit]

Hoengseong is very close to Jungang Expressway, which runs through Wonju and goes as far north as Chuncheon and as far south as Daegu.

Get around[edit]

The downtown core of Hoengseong is very small, and walking is probably easy enough. To get to one of the parks, it's probably best to take a bus.
