This is the third International F.I.C.C. Rally to be held in South Korea and will take place in Wanju Camping Park in Wanju-Gun, Jeollabuk-Do.

The booking fee is €120 per adult, €65 per teenager up to 18 years of age, no charge for children under 12.
F.I.C.C.’s Rally Liaison Officer has visited the venue and been on several of the excursions to places that are worth visiting.
The nearest airports are Incheon International Airport and Gimpo International Airport. There are airport buses (to Jeonju-si) and shuttle buses (to the rally site). English-speaking staff and
volunteers will be at the airports and at the bus stops in Jeonju-si to welcome participants and accompany them to the Gosan Mugunghwa campsite.
Mobile homes on the campsite are very simply equipped and, in keeping with Korean sleeping and living arrangements, no beds or chairs are provided. One just sits and sleeps on the floor!
The campsite is in an idyllic location in a river valley. In the summer months one can swim in the river and walk in the surrounding hills. The rally site covers a very wide area and for this reason there will be a small bus/train to drive people from one end of the camping park to the other.
There are no shops or restaurants on the camping park. The nearest shops are 30 minutes’ drive away.
The organisers have drawn up a very varied programme including exhibitions of camping equipment, seminars on “Experiencing the natural world and ecology“ and “Back to nature“, camping photo competition, traditional Korean cultural events and games, quality evening entertainment, a jazz evening, friends evening etc. etc. A shuttle bus to the nearest town will probably be provided.


The rally site has a first aid post and there are doctors in the local town.

The Korean writing system is known as hangul. It consists of 40 letters – 21 vowels and 19 consonants. Of these 40 letters 24 form the basis and the others are compounds. If you learn the basic letters, the rest just follows!
Double consonants are hard guttural sounds.
