There was Catholic sacred place in Korea. I didn't expected but there was very reverent and calm. I wandered this area with good feelings. I felt good in this area like standing Buddhist temple. Especially, the main Catholic church was very beautiful and grand. I were satisfied about visiting this area. Recommendable place.

The Independence Hall of Korea

Reviewed By Sean B - Cairo, Egypt

The architecture of Independence Hall is striking and slightly Stalinist. The surrounding parks are quite beautiful in the Spring. The highlight for me though was definitely the museum. While I don't doubt that there's a fair amount of one sidedness and the exhibits can get a little propagandaish, the museum is an interesting look at the Japanese occupation. It's a good way to gauge how the Korean government and many Koreans view their past relationship with Japan and why there is so much bad blood between the two peoples even today.

Shinjang Shopping Mall

Reviewed By Angela H - New York City, New York

This little strip is the best thing right outside the base. Lots of stores for nice trinkets, luggage, and food. Food selection from McDonald's, Indian, Korean, Vietnamese to Turkish. Street vendors come out later in the day but also offer tasty snacks. The bars get quite busy late at night and there are plenty to chose from.

남사당 전수관에서는 매주 남사당 풍물놀이 여섯 마당이 펼쳐진다. 풍물단은 바우덕이를 기리고 과거 남사당놀이를 본격적으로 재현하기 위해 2002년 5월 시립으로 정식 창단했다. 10월에는 축제를 연다. 가장 백미는 줄타기. 정말 재밌는 공연이다.

Buraksan

Reviewed By podrozniczka60 - New Jersey

This beautiful nature preserve is in Songtan district of Pyeongtaek about 2 miles from the Osan Air Base and near the Songtan Middle School. There is ample parking available and during our stay the parking was free. The hiking shoes cleaning stations like in most places in South Korea are available at the parking lot.
At the entrance to the preserve there is a large map with signs in Korean and English.The network of gorgeous trails of about 8 miles leads to Deogam Mountain and Burak Mountain. While hiking you will see strolling pheasants, interesting flora and burial sites . After a couple of miles one can reach a large picnic area with bathrooms and drink stations available. Going further we get to cross the Ecobridge over Rt 317. On the way there are pagodas, towers, exercise stations, benches and great views of Pyeongtaek.
All parts of the trails are very well managed. As a community service American troops clean the trails on second Saturday each month.
Entering the trails look for a signboard "Buraksan Guide Map".
The Buraksan Hiking Preserve is great and enjoyable for all ages. A must-see place while in Pyeongtaek.

Yongin Daejanggeum Park

Reviewed By Hans S - Corpus Christi, Texas

I went here with a group and it was one of two activities on this day trip from Seoul. I had expected a series of sound stages and facades of buildings. No... They rebuilt an entire village!
In some ways it is better than going to some "real" historical sites in that it is built to be complete and reconstruct a functioning village for their films and dramas. The day we were there MBC was actually filming. With only an occasional "shh" gesture, they let us wander throughout the complex. When the actors were not needed for a particular scene, they gladly posed with visitors for photos.
Had I been a Korean Drama addict, I would have given the MBC Dramia 5 stars. Had I spent 4 hours on the road to see only this attraction, 3 stars. Overall, more interesting than I had expected.

NACF Anseong Farmland

Reviewed By mhybork - San Diego, California

The drive from Seoul was long due to traffic and the line for the ticket booth on the day after Chuseok was ridiculous but once we were in, it was pleasant. Tip: Buy your tickets in advance online in order to be in the shortest line (#8 on the left). The regular admission is 10,000 won which includes one tractor ride around the farm. My child was free since he is under 36 months old. The kids’ rides can be purchased separately inside, or you can buy a more expensive ticket to include a few rides. The best part was feeding the farm animals, such as sheep, cow, horse, pigs, goat, deer and more. You can buy a little hay for 1,000 won. Cash works best. When you want to feed the birds though, you should bring two 500 won coins. There are places to eat inside and outside. Lots of Photo opportunities! Despite the traffic and ticket line, we would recommend the farm, especially if you have small kids, and hope to go again.
