The manifesto of Cittaslow, the international network of Slow Cities details the meaning and significance of a slow paced life through “An Analogue Journey in a Highly Digital Nation”. Since 2007, eight places in Korea have been designated Slow Cities where you can evade the clutches of modernizations, let go off your worries, return to nature and do some soul searching in peace. Slow Cities should have less than 50,000 residents; produce local specialties made in a traditional way and of the land. The Jeungdo district in the Sinan region, Cheongsando district in the Wando region, the Jangheung region of Jeollanam-do province, the Hadong region of Gyeongsangnam-do province, Changpyeong district in the Damyang region, Yesan region of Chuncheongnam-do province, Joan-myeon in Namyangju-si City and Jeonju Hanok Village are some of the lovely slow cities you just cannot afford to miss. They are the ideal places to discover the genuine flavours and spirit of Korea.
