IntroductionThe western and southwestern coast, along the Yellow Sea, is characterized by mountains, pristine forests, temples and the spectacular narrow valleys of Naejangsan National Park. The park, about a four-hour drive south of Seoul, offers magnificent scenery, hiking trails and an opportunity to relax and view colorful foliage in the fall. A little farther north is the town of Buyeo. For those interested in bamboo baskets and everything related to tall grass, plan a few hours in Damyang, 20 mi/32 km northeast of Gongju. Other sights in the area include Daecheon Beach, Sudeok Temple, Seosan Marine National Park and Hongdo Island.
