Gughwa in Gochang

Two weeks ago, we went to Gochang to see the Gukhwa "chrysanthemum" (flowers) that bloom in fall. Gochang County (Gochang-gun) is a county in North Jeolla Province, South Korea. It is a rural area. The temple of Seonunsa and the Dolmen is also located here. (I went to Dolmen in Gochang before i came to the blogging world so i didn't get any picture of them. You may want to check out the Dolmen in Hwasun.)

I was amazed to see this 300,000 pyeong (pyeong=3.3058 square meter) of Gukhwa in Gochang. But what amazed me more was the entrance fee is free even the parking lot. Wow!

We also saw some people selling Chrysanthemum tea. It is a flower-based tisane made from chrysanthemum flowers.

And foreigners from different countries selling native products.

I also saw kids had fun riding this while wandering the place. Of course, this one is not free. hehehe..

Hubby asked me what i wanted to eat so i chose alttang.
