A surprising little enclave of quietude Nov 23, 2013
The House of Changwon is one of the very few preserved old structures of Changwon. Historically, it holds little significance, it's the former resident of a Korean scholar. But the carefully preserved architecture and landscape is what makes it worth seeing. After spending a week in a busy concrete jungle, it's nice to come someplace like the House of Changwon and remember that plants do grow, and not all buildings are covered in fluorescent advertisements.

Admission is free, and you can see all 14 buildings in the complex, in addition to a pond and two gazebos. You may run into a wedding or some other traditional ceremony taking place, but everyone seems pretty understanding if you have a camera with you. The grounds are very lush and picturesque, so lots of opportunity to use those cameras!

To get there, it's best to take a cab, and show the cab driver the name in Korean. It's right in the middle of Changwon in a quiet residential area surrounded by cafes and schools.
