Hwangji-dong is the main town in Taebaek. It’s also the location of the City Bus Terminal and Train station, making it the center area for travelers visiting by public transportation. It’s certainly well worth visiting Hwangji-dong, especially if you’re seeking an escape from the city. You can slow it down and enjoy photographing a small town. There are many interesting details to explore and document.
Hwangji Free Market
A highlight of visiting any area in the South Korean peninsula is exploring the traditional markets. It’s always a highlight of my trips to visit such areas. I thoroughly enjoyed exploring and photographing at the Hwangji Free Market in the town.

With Taebaek being mostly mountain ranges, there are mountains everywhere, which are nicely seen from the high peak of the location of the goat farm. You can enjoy a latte, photograph the animals, and have a view of the surrounding mountains and the town below.
