Examples of Rural Tourism in Korea

Hence, regarding the fact that planning capability for rural development of these two villages is tourism, its development plan should be based on tourism. Regarding the close relation of tourism development and bio-environmental, economical, socio-cultural, and legal-political factors, it is necessary to consider the capabilities and limitations of these factors.
