Chongup Travel Guide: 13 reviews and 58 photos
Jeongeup (sometimes also called Chongup in English) is a relatively small and laid back town located at the southwest Jeollabuk-do province of South Korea. In fact, it is just next to the famous Honam Expressway which runs from Seoul all the way to the southern part of South Korea.
I had a chance to have some brief stops at Jeongeup as I travelled from Seoul to the famous Naejangsan National Park (see my VT Naejangsan page) which is located just a few kilometres south of Jeongeup. In fact, Jeongeup is the gateway town to Naejangsan National Park and other attractions around the region.
Let me share with you some information and photographs of Jeongeup, which hopefully will be useful to you.
This is the scenery as I was about to enter the town of Jeongeup by bus from the Honam Expressway. There are lots of agricultural fields around Jeongeup, which is also surrounded by mountains on the western and southern sides.
The bus journey from Seoul to Jeongeup along the Honam Expressway was very scenic indeed. It will pass by many agricultural fields surrounded by mountains and valleys, rivers, small towns etc. The weather was very good and sunny during my bus journey, and more photographs are at the travelogue section of this VT page.
