Due to the heat the City has installed many tents around town at traffic lights or rest areas so that you can stay out of the sun. Well done Gwangju. Please also note that most water parks are scheduled to close down at the end of next week so make the most of it. Let’s hope they keep it open till later though.


Here are some other festivals going on.


The Fringe festival is back downtown at the ACC this week.

전주 Jeonju Ga Meak Festival (Beer festival) kicked off last night – run till this Saturday.
