Nakcheonri “Village of Nine Good Things”

Traveling to the west coast of Jeju last week for my paragliding trip, I discovered Nakcheonri, also called the “Village of Nine Good Things” (낙천리 아홉굿 마을).

At first glance, it looks like a park with a lot of wooden structures. But there’s so much more than that. It has n experience center, a seminar, a folklore museum, and a D.I.Y. experience center.

Olle trail 13 also passes by this place.

As I take my time to wander around, I saw how cool it really is. It’s a village of chairs, in different shapes and styles!

There are funky wooden chairs with pirate skulls, looking like they’re the royal pirates holding court in the yard.

In the back are a big ring of green wooden chairs with the image of a four-leaf clover on the back. I can imagine people playing duck-duck-goose here! 🙂

The playground has a fun design as well. Can you see the dragon ship?

I think this set of chairs is one of my favorites though! They look to be made of metal and is shaped like people just casually sitting around. I especially like that guy on the left, who looks like he’s waving to me. ^_^

And here’s a take on couple chairs! Is this for when a couple fight? They’re still together, but won’t have to be next to each other!

The “Village of Nine Good Things” doesn’t only have chairs though. There’s also a nice walking path.

But with all the trees and plants around, beware of bugs! I didn’t walk for long because the bugs were getting to me. 😛

Overall, I’m glad that I had a chance to visit this “Village of Nine Good Things” and get a feel for the humble and endearing culture of Nakcheonri. One can walk, sit, get a snack, explore, or just simply relax here. If you want to learn more about the history of Nakcheonri, read this article.

Jeju has a lot of fun tourist attractions, but its beauty lies also in the tradition and culture of its people.
