Zarbrino south of Vlad is best
Last year we entered Russia from S Korea using the Dung Chun Ferry, it docks in both Vlad and Zarbrino.
From other accounts we chose to enter via Zarbrino as it is quiet and few problems with Russia Customs. We did take all day to pass Customs
and paid $US150 duty, but others going through Vlad took many days. It is likely Vlad is a similar problem going out of Russia.
The ferry is about 18 hours to Sokcho.
This advice only applies to vehicles as S Korea has a problem with motorcycles apparently.
The main port of S Korea is Pusan on the southern end of the peninsular. From Pusan home I would choose to put the vehicle in a shipping container from there. RORO have theft issues, if not on board on the dock before you pick up.
