Things To Do in Gwangju

Mudeungsan Mountain
35 Reviews
M38***13To go to Wudeng Mountain, you must climb to the top of the mountain, or you can’t see the beautiful scenery at all. The hillside is no different from a normal mountain. For details, please refer to my travel notes. There should be few people climbing to the top of the mountain, but it’s really good. !

Cultural Experiencial Area
M38***13From the 518 Memorial Cemetery, return to Gwangju Railway Station, and then change to Bus No. 48 to the Gwangju Folk Museum in the northern suburbs of Gwangju. The Folk Museum is located in a huge cultural park, and the Gwangju Art Museum is also here. Jeolla Province with Gwangju at its core and even the entire Honam area can be regarded as the Baekje Cultural Circle. Although agriculture and fisheries are developed, they have been a place for exiles since ancient times because of their relatively remote locations. This has also become the rebellious character of the residents of the Honam area. One reason for this. In short, it has a unique regional character, so the Folklore Museum, a folklore museum with a ticket of 500 won, is very large-almost on the same level as the National Museum of Folklore in Seoul. It is not only large in scale, but also rich in content. From fishing and woodworking to food, clothing, housing and transportation to weddings and funerals, everything you can think of about traditional folk customs is included here, and most of the explanatory texts on the panels are available in Chinese. But in fact, the most important thing is that this museum is really fun, it can be said to be more fun than the National Museum of Folklore in Seoul! The audience went from one scene to another in the exhibition hall. The most magnificent one was the large-scale scene of local folk entertainment in Gwangju... But this also proved from the side that the collections here are quite limited.
Gwangju National Museum
22 Reviews
M38***13The Gwangju Folk Museum is just across the road to the north and is the Gwangju Museum, which is open for free, but this museum is not very fun. Compared with the magnificent folk museum, it looks boring and pedantic, but after all, it still sorts out the history of the Hunan region: it was the site of Mahan in the Sanhan era, and Gwangju was once the capital of Baekje in the Baekje era. Because it was in the middle of the maritime trade route from the Celestial dynasty to Japan via North Korea, it has also become an important export destination of the famous Goryeo celadon. Broadly speaking, it can be regarded as the northernmost section of the Maritime Silk Road.

National Park
M32***23Jirisan National Park has lush virgin forests and gurgling streams flowing between the rocky valleys. Ascending to the peak, you can see the rolling sea of clouds and rolling mountains. The azaleas in spring and the red leaves in autumn are colorful. There are ancient temples such as Huayan Temple and Quanyin Temple at the foot of the mountain. The scenery is beautiful, and the snow scene is particularly moving.
