  This fifth largest island of Korea, at the mouth of the Han River one hour northwest of Seoul, provides visitors a look at Korea's rural life and natural beauty. Historical accounts of this island span the entire spectrum of Korean existence, from the time of Dan-gun to the opening of Korea to the Western World. Ganghwado offers numerous prehistoric remains and historical attractions. In honor of Dan-gun, the mythical founder of the Korean nation, the Ganghwado Festival is held every year in mid-October.
