Gwangju, South Korea

October 27, 2012
13-14 October 2012

Gwangju is located in south of Jeolla-do (Jeollanam-do). I went there when there were many festivals in Gwangju, such as Kimchi World Festival 2012.

Notes :
  1. Most of transportation in Gwangju is bus or taxi. Especially in Damyang City, I prefer to take Damyang City Tour or going by bicycle because of complicated bus route.
  2. There are many buses from Seoul to Gwangju. Take bus at Seoul , Central City Terminal to Honam Line-Gwangju. It takes about 3.45 hours. Standard bus 16.900won.
  3. There are many buses in Gwangju U-square Terminal from Gwangju to other city.
  4. There is bus from Damyang to Seoul or other big city like Incheon, but it has exact time. I took standard bus at 5pm about 17.000won. *There is no locker in Damyang Terminal.
  5. You can go to Gwangju also by train, but it’s more expensive than bus.
