Donghae (동해) is a coastal city in Gangwon, South Korea.

Get in

By bus

For those using public transport, bus is the most convenient way to get to Donghae for most people. The bus terminal is a 20 minute walk north of the downtown area (5 minute cab ride.) There are frequent buses to the Express Bus Terminal in Seoul (takes a little over 3 hours), and less frequent buses to Dong Seoul (East Seoul.) There are also buses leaving every 10 minutes for Gangneung (35-40 minutes) as well as buses to most other cities in Gangwon Province. There are 3 overnight buses to Busan.

By train

The Yeongdong line goes through Donghae, stopping at Donghae Station (south of downtown) and Mukho Station (north of downtown.) There aren't a lot of trains, however, and those there are don't go to too many places that are appealing to tourists, making the bus more convenient for most tourists.

By ferry

Donghae serves as the main access point to Ulleungdo, with regular ferry service throughout the year (usually once or twice a day in each direction, more frequent in the summer.) Ferries leave from Mukho Port, a 5 minute drive of downtown.
