Jeju City’s ‘Children’s Historic Tours’ aim to boost pride in local cultural heritage among Jeju’s young leaders.
Program participants visit the Samyang-dong Prehistoric Site, the Hangpaduri Fortress, Gwandeokjeong Pavilion, and the Jeju Mokgwana old provincial buildings.
All the destinations are designated as historic sites or national treasures. At the sites experts give lectures and commentaries on their importance to the students.
The first event was held on Oct 16 with 144 Hagwi Elementary School students. Later this month, from Dec 4 to 17, 294 students from Hamdeok, Ora, and Jeju Dong Elementary Schools will join the tours.
