As I hit the six month countdown on my life in South Korea, I’m trying to ensure I see everything I can! One thing on my list was the Blue Crystal Village, also known as Asan Mediterranean Village. It’s a themed village of shops, restaurants and cafes in South Korea built in the likeliness of Santorini, Greece. It’s not far from where I live, so a quick drive away for an late afternoon day trip was in store!

In the 5-6 rows of the village, there are tons of cafes, a few antique shops, some children’s boutiques and a small handful of restaurants. There is plenty of parking if you get there by vehicle. Here are some photos! It’s no Greece, but until I get there someday, this will have to do:

Address: 55-7, Tangjeongmyeon-ro 8beon-gil, Tangjeong-myeon, Asan-si, Chungcheongnam-do
