Instead of a busy schedule visiting several tourist attractions in a day, I much enjoy slowing down a bit and visit local towns. Taking a walk in a small village and see how people live can be more interesting. Myeongwol is a peaceful town where visitors would definitely enjoy walking around and enjoy the atmosphere. I visited in a grey winter day. I was the only person walking around except the locals there. Some newly built cozy houses with the old beautiful nettle trees along the small valley made unique view of the town.
1.5Km north from the town is Myeongwol fortress. On the top of the wall, beautiful scenery and the wind will welcome you.
