Just south of Seoul : Suwon.
The city is surrounded by a huge fortress wall (6km long).
I started with a walk at night. I twisted my ankle like a stupid girl in the uneven stairs so the days after was just resting.

After a night stop in Daejon, I arrived in Danyang, a small town surrounded by a large river and high mountains.

I visited the gorgeous and huge temple complex of Guin-sa. A lantern event had to take place a few days before, it was cleaning time. So I help a little and be thanked by the local grandmas with a lot of red beans bread!

Then, I took some fresh air in a funny cave full of monsters!

Just a little bit north of Buyeo : Gongju.

The main attraction here is the fortress. I've been realy lucky, there was a special event. Changing of the Guard ceremony, dances and costumes.

Buyeo, a quiet town, easy to visit by walk.

I went to a small temple, free food and really nice mood. Smiling families and "I try to speak english" grandpa's.
