Exemplary rural village

A resident of Hwatap Village in Naju, South Jeolla Province, leads a mule towing a carriage for visitors as part of the village’s tourist programs, Monday. President-elect Park Geun-hye recently lauded the village during a transition team meeting as a good example of rural development by linking farming with tourism and operating direct sales shops for beef from cattle the villagers raise there.                                                                                / Yonhap
