Travel Tips for Gwangju
The court room
Inside this area they also "installed" a court room. It was made in memory to the people who demonstrated against the dictatorship in the early 80's. The officals litigate against them and they went into prison. One of them was Kim-Dae-jung, who became later the president... and he got the Nobel Peace Price due to its "sunshine policy" with North Korea ....
You have to know that even South Korea was a dictatorship until the early 90's. The first democratic president was elected in 1993 and it was Kim Young-sam.
Gwang juice Skating
I heard its smaller than the one in Lotte, Seoul. But, being the only one in Gwangju, not bad for a beginner like me. Not sure about the timings. I wuz there on a sunday, and it closed at 1750. You can rent the skates for mere 5500 won.
Fun, Vibrant, and Artistic City
I really enjoyed Gwangju. It has a lot of art areas and galleries that are interesting to see. The city also has a young feel to it. There is a university here, and there are many discos and bars catering to the college age crowd. The city seems to have more of its own, unique character than other cities in Korea.
I did not eat here, so I cannot recommend the food, but I do appreciate good "engrish" when I see it...
