Understanding Rational Secrets Of
(Se-Woong Koo/Korea Exposé) Living and working in Seoul means I seldom travel beyond the capital region. When I do, Gyeongju is certainly enjoyable for its temples and grassy royal tombs. Mt. Seorak has majestic peaks and waterfalls. Jeju beckons with a semi-tropical climate, myriad beaches and a stunning volcanic landscape. But I have been here long enough to see them all. And most sights of lesser renown often fall short of expectation, no matter how glowingly government-sponsored brochures describe them. Seocheon, on the southwestern tip of South Chungcheong Province, was never on my list of places to see, much less on my radar. Located between Boryeong, busy during its well-attended summer mud festival, and Gunsan, a port city that boasts an assortment of colonial-era architecture, Seocheon, with a population of 56,000 and decreasing, is one of those places you might drive through but hardly think about. Eat Local , a travel startup that aims to take foreigners to such under-the-radar destinations, contacted Korea Exposé about a weekend press tour in Seocheon last month, and I decided to join mainly out of curiosity. As the name makes clear, the company emphasizes food as a big part of the travel experience.
