Korean President Former Summer House

Beautiful gardens around it. Very quiet place. Perfect for vacation. You have to change shoes to get in. No picture or food allowed inside the house. Nice visit overall.

This is not actually in Cheongju. It's about an hour outside of the city by express bus. The house was cool, but it wasn't anything to rave over.
