More About Donghae

Donghae is a coastal city in Gangwon, South Korea.

The Port of Donghae is located on South Korea’s east central shores on the Sea of Japan in Gangwon Province. The Port of Donghae lies in mountainous terrain and is rich in natural resources, including some wonderful beaches. The Port of Donghae is a free industry zone and has seen much investment in the past years.

There are two ports in the province, and Mukho Harbor is about six kilometers north-northeast of the Port of Donghae. Much of the traffic that used to go to Mukho now goes to the Port of Donghae, and Mukho is primarily a fishing port.

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.) Donghae also serves as the Korean stop in the ferry service between Vladivostok, Russia and Sakaiminato, Japan. Ferries leave from Mukho Port, a 5 minute drive north of downtown Donghae.
