Like most provincial capitals, sprawling Cheongju (청주) – not to be confused with nearby Chungju – is not terribly captivating. Its primary, and frankly hugely important, claim to fame is as the place where the world’s oldest book was printed using movable metal type. The town also serves as a launchpad to Songnisan National Park and the presidential villa Cheongnamdae. Once you've seen these, there's really no need to hang around.
