Take a walk in province of Jeolla
It’s composed of the province which are all in the south of Korea, Jeollanam and Jeollabuk-do which also link onto Jeju Island.
You can contemplate its beautiful beaches in the south west of Korea. Put on your trainers and climb the rolling hills in the centre and the Sobaek high mountains to the east. You can visit some of the 2000 islands along the coast. A fun fact, almost 300 of them are uninhabited. This region is a bit special because it has its own government and a separate telephone area code.
The climate there is gentle and humid, which makes the land well suited to agriculture. The region therefore has a large number of rice fields. This captures the eye because these rice fields are populated with white herons. For the more spiritual or those who wish to discover the methods of “zen”, introduce yourself to zen Buddhism in the temple of Songgwang-Sa.
The traditional culture is particularly accessible in this region with its Buddhist temples and ancient villages. One of the most emblematic places is the historic quarter with the Hanoks (traditional houses) which have been converted to allow artisans to work in museums, ….. This province is also the “birthplace of pansori”, which are traditional songs which are accompanied tambourines.
It’s equally a mountainous region, but not like the majority of other provinces, because in the heart of winter, you will find strong sensations on the ski tracks the highest and most beautiful in Korea.
