With the Lunar New Year or Sollal approaching planning is essential if you wish to travel within Korea. For many who are still in Korea and plan on leaving Gwangju, traffic is usually not that bad as the inflow into the city is usually at higher volumes than the outflow. However it is always better to plan ahead.
