Went here to see the Universiade Athletics in 2015. The stadium looks great and getting around inside is easy. Viewing of the pitch is excellent almost regardless of where you sit. It could be easier to get to though, we took the number 6 or 74 bus to get us there every day. Busses are 1200 won a ride and... More

Great location to do some shopping, hit the driving range and other sports. Had some great Asian food in the lotte mall and enjoyed the architecture of the stadium.

It's interesting to look at, but I've not seen a game here yet. The Lotte Outlets are right here, though so if you're already in the neighborhood shopping, pop outside and take a look. Or go see a game here.

There's a large mall next door, a gym (with skating rink!), and a park to walk around. The mall is standard; nothing special unless you live close by, and you need to go grocery shopping. The skating rink is nice,... More

If you are into soccer/futball you will enjoy the visit to the World Cop Stadium in Gwangju. The group enjoyed watching a match.

I went here for a football match between Gwangju FC and Pohang Steelers. The stadium is just a normal, average stadium. It has quite good facilities, such as clean toilets and food/drink stalls just outside the tribune.

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.... More
