Yeongdeok Crab Village is a typical fishing village blessed with the natural beauty of the mountains and East Sea, located on the east coast of Gyeongsangbuk-do. There are about a hundred snow crab restaurants in Gangguhang Port, which has remained the center of the Yeongdeok snow crab scene since King Taejo of Goryeo Dynasty, and is now one of the top tourist destinations in the East Coast.

During the season of snow crabs, which lasts for about seven months between November and May, the area bustles with local and international tourists visiting for a fresh snow crab meal. Visitors can experience both romance and various cultural activities of the fishing community.

Price: Between 60,000 won and 150,000 won per person (depending on the type of crab)

Nearby Tourist Attractions: Yeongdeok Sunrise Park
