WANDO, Mar. 28 (Korea Bizwire) — The 2019 Cheongsando Island Slow Walking Festival will be held on April 6 at Cheongsando Island located in Wando County, South Jeolla Province.
Festivities will be held in various locations of the island under the four themes of healing, sharing, fairness, and value over a period of 30 days.
In the ‘healing course,’ visitors will be able to take a sneak peek at the slow and peaceful lives of Cheongsan residents.
In the ‘sharing course,’ visitors will be able to donate flower seeds by tracking walking distance on a smartphone app to contribute to making a more beautiful Cheongsando Island.
The ‘fairness course’ will allow visitors to express and feel however they want, without having to be trapped in any form of rules or restrictions.
The ‘value course’ brings visitors to experience the unique traditions that the island holds and learn many values from them.
For the festival, Wando County planted canola and cabbage throughout the walking path that stretches along 42.195 kilometers of the island.
Green barley has also been planted along the coast to mesmerize visitors with the scenic view that blends spectacularly with the blue ocean.
Wando County also filled idle spaces around roads to plant Livingstone daisies, pansies, viola, and other spring flowers to create colorful roads. Visitors who complete the courses will be given celebratory badges.
Visitors will also be able to experience a variety of traditions unique to Cheongsando Island, including traditional wedding ceremonies, crafts made out of shellfish and straws, and more.
