Hampyeong Butterfly Festival

Korea's many beautiful butterfly species and other local insects are found in this festival which is especially popular with families. The butterfly centre is especially popular to see the various live butterflies among the flowers. The festival also puts a spotlight on the local agriculture and produce with various Gardens and displays. The hands-on activities for kids and families makes it a fun experience for families.

나비축제에요. 수만종의 다양한 나비들의 향연. 아이들 생태학습에 엄청 큰 도움이 될거같습니다.
봄에 개최되는 축제라 화사한 봄꽃까지 넝나 기분전환되는 나들이였어요.

Gwangju Folk Museum

Reviewed By EconProf - Fargo, North Dakota

We took a cab from our hotel (Firenze Hotel) and the cost was about 5000 won. The museum is well-organized and most of the information is available in English. The museum traces the customs of Korea from birth to death. I especially enjoyed the displays of local food since it helped me to identify some of the things we had been eating.
The museum takes 1 - 2 hours to visit and is free. It's next to the Art Museum and you can also walk to the Gwangju National Museum from the Folk museum (ask for directions). It's about a ten minute walk. We visited both museums in the morning.

Pungam Reservoir

Reviewed By Maria L - Gwangju, South Korea

CAn energetic jog or a romantic walk. Pungam Reservoir is a great idea. Connecting World Cup Stadium, Yeomju Gymnasium, Lotte Outlet stores & mall, AND entrances to hikes on Keumnam Mtn. Safe, family friendly with spots to use the communal exercise equipment that is ubiquitous in Korea.

1913 Songjeong Market

Reviewed By Ada W - Manchester, United Kingdom

A nice refurbished historical market opposite the train station with places to eat and drink. Even has a place to wait that will display the train times. Not a long street but packed with interesting little stores selling hand made noodles, a butchers or just small cafes. An interesting mix of old buildings with new store fronts.

World Cup Stadium

Reviewed By Andrew T - Gwangju, South Korea

The World Cup Stadium is a fantastic arena that was a cauldron during the Football World Cup in 2002. Since then it has rarely seen the same attention. Gwangju has only recently formed a K-League football team and with little full time support in a city obsessed with baseball and the Kia Tigers match days can feel a little souless. There is a park and a large shopping centre right by the stadium and you can take drinks and food in which is great. The tickets are also cheap at 10,000 won.
If you have a spare couple of hours in Gwangju on match day then grab a pizza and some beers from the store next door and give it a try but I would not make it a "must do" by any means.
