Did not know what to expect when we visit this spot. But it turned out to be cute. Very close to the shops area. The place has several cute café to sit back and relax. It is not as bad as other review really. Although this place has several english classes, communicating can still be very very VERY challenging. Expect... More

Because I live in Seoul I always compare other cities to Seoul. Gwangju is not a tour site, and there are only a few memorial, or historical monument, so I don~t think It's a good idea to visit Gwangju. If you are travelling Jeunlado, then just visit Haenam,Jeonju, Damyang , Suncheon and Yusoo. If you like trekking, Jili Mount will... More

While my friends and I walked down it all we saw were art schools. A bit of graffiti but not too much other than that. We thought there would be arts and crafts for sale, art galleries and the like (well, one school had a viewing area) but there wasn't much.

The Gwangju tourist authority will have you believe that the street of art is a kin to Monmarte in Paris and although it is not without its charm this is a little wide of the mark. The street is easily reached from the main shopping area of down town Gwangju and is worth a stroll if your in the area.... More
