What should I pack when moving to Gangneung?

Answer this Question

We asked people living in Gangneung to list three things they wish they had brought and three they wish they had left behind. They responded...

"When moving to Gangneung, it's important to pack clothing suitable for all four seasons, as the city experiences a wide range of temperatures throughout the year. This includes warm clothing for the winter months, such as heavy coats, scarves, gloves, and hats, as well as lighter clothing for the summer, like shorts, t-shirts, and sandals. You should also pack a good pair of walking shoes, as Gangneung is a walkable city with many attractions that can be reached on foot. Don't forget to pack your toiletries, prescription medications, and any other personal care items you use daily. If you're planning on cooking at home, you might want to bring some of your favorite non-perishable food items, as they may be hard to find in local grocery stores. Similarly, if you have a favorite brand of coffee or tea, consider bringing some with you. Remember to pack all necessary electronics, including your laptop, phone, chargers, and any other devices you use regularly. If you're coming from a country with different electrical outlets, you'll also need to bring a power adapter. Bring important documents such as your passport, visa, driver's license, and any other identification you might need. It's also a good idea to have copies of these documents in case the originals are lost or stolen. Lastly, consider packing some items to make your new place feel like home, such as photos, small decorations, or a favorite blanket or pillow. These can help make the transition to a new city a little easier," said another expat in Gangneung, Korea.
