Yemi (예미) Gangwon-do

Yemi is a small village in Jeongseon County, Gangwon-do, with a population of around 1000. Yemi is small, yet in a beautiful area surrounded by mountains, and offers a really authentic Korean experience (there isn't even a Family Mart!).

The nearest town is Hambaek , a short bus ride away (buses few and far between), a 50 minute walk, or a 20 minute bike ride. Koreans here have no shame in staring at someone different – there are very, very few sightings of anyone Western around here, so don't be alarmed - revel in the fleeting celeb moment!
