My mom in law called on the phone and said that she saw on tv a good place to visit. She was talking about Cheonghakdong.

Cheonghakdong Village, located at the southern foot of Samsanbong Peak on Mt. Jirisan, maintains the traditional style ... Cheonghakdong is one area where no harm was ever done under any circumstances in the turbulent history of Korea. Here's the view on the way to Cheonghakdong.

There are many korean traditional houses and some people who live there have long beard.

I couldn't take any picture of them but here's a tile wall with a picture of a man with long beard.

Cheonghakdong is famous for koreans because some parents send their children to learn Korean traditional manners while staying over at Cheonghakdong Village. Here's the school where they teach good manners to students.

I think most traditional places in Korea have this kind of trees. Koreans said that they send the bad spirits away.

And here's a museum. The wall is made up of stones. Click the picture to enlarge.
