Yeongju-walker.com was created to help people find their way around Yeong-ju, South Korea, a rural district in Korea, through crowdsourcing information. It was originally created when one of the website founders was relocated to Yeongju for work. Having trouble settling into the community and finding lack of information about activities in the city, we learned that many others relocated to work in Yeongju experience the same issues, and decided to create this website to share information.
Yeongju is a city in the mid-eastern part of South Korea, that some companies have established factories in and hence has a decent population of non-local residents. It is also famous for its high quality ginseng, apples, and beautiful mountains (in which the ginseng grows in), as well as traditional temples that attract visitors from all over. Above all, it is home to some wonderful people and some amazing Korean food!
