Gwangju Tourist Attractions | Gwangju

It was the first time to Gwangju autumn 2013, the city is not as busy as Busan, but it has its hidden charm. This is a city that I will definitely visit again.

I am not a foodie, nor a must to dine in fanciful restaurant. Normally, will explore local eating places that local go, which most of the time inexpensive and delicious.. The experience can be unforgettable.

In Gwangju, grilled beef rib patties is popular, however we found out local duck meat is a must to try. It is one of the local delicacies and after trying, yes, we are totally convinced.

It was by chance we found this local family run restaurant, tuck at a corner at the back alley behind Lotte World, Subway Line Geumnamo-5-ga. The restaurant serves up all type of duck dishes. Actually we were drowned to the restaurant by the cute duckie logo outside the restaurant..;)

We ordered the BBQ marinated duck, which was so delicious that we cannot forget that experience.

Tips to drink beer & soju : 3/4 glass of beer + 1 shot of soju = mix them and you get somac. Thats how the local drink their beer and soju. Warning, soju can completely knock you out if you don't control yourself.. 🙂

Anyone heading to Gwangju, please try this. Alternatively, you can try the duck soup, which apparently is known to eliminate toxins from body. Hmm, that should be the next target in the next trip to Gwangju.
