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.

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
