Gyeonggi-do is the most populous district in Korea, and consists up-to 28 cities, and 3 counties. It is also the backbone of the manufacturing industry and IT/technology industry of major corporations such as Samsung, SK and LG. Gyeonggi-do can be divided into South and North, by the Han River, and the West, to account for Incheon City. The western harbors along the province are centers of major trade routes between Korea and the Asian countries. Most of the Gyeonggi-do province is accessible by the Seoul Subway Line, and the City Bus.
Gyeonggi-do is home to the biggest theme park in Korea, Everland, along with the biggest water park next to Everland known as Caribbean Bay. Everland houses the most thrilling roller-coaster called the T-Express. You can also visit the famous Korean folk village to take a glimpse of Korean history and its culture. Finally, similar to Gangwon-do province, the northern Gyeonggi-do province houses the DMZ border as well.
