"The most open-minded city of Korea" Gwangju by DSwede

Gwangju Travel Guide: 26 reviews and 49 photos

Gwangju is a great city in Korea in my opinion. Most likely due to the violent past of the city, it has kept in its mind the freedoms that it faught for.

Therefore I find the people of Gwangju to be the most open minded and welcoming of all those I have met in Korea.

For some more general thoughts, please visit my S Korea page.

My camera was not working during my visits to Gwangju, but for more pictures, feel free to visit my S Korea Gallery. If you enjoy the pictures, please leave a comment.
