Did not know what to expect when we visit this spot. But it turned out to be cute. Very close to the shops area. The place has several cute café to sit back and relax. It is not as bad as other review really. Although this place has several english classes, communicating can still be very very VERY challenging. Expect the same for any spot around Gwangju.

Because I live in Seoul I always compare other cities to Seoul.
Gwangju is not a tour site, and there are only a few memorial, or historical monument, so I don~t think It's a good idea to visit Gwangju.
If you are travelling Jeunlado, then just visit Haenam,Jeonju, Damyang , Suncheon and Yusoo.
If you like trekking, Jili Mount will be good.
That's all.

Looked at previous reviews and was a bit wary of checking it out, but it was close to the downtown core so we went anyways. Found lots of shops there, but they all sold pretty much the same goods. It was the friendly shop owners who really made it fun. Try and communicate in a language other than your own and it seems they throw discounts at you. The trick is to smile!

While my friends and I walked down it all we saw were art schools. A bit of graffiti but not too much other than that. We thought there would be arts and crafts for sale, art galleries and the like (well, one school had a viewing area) but there wasn't much.

The Gwangju tourist authority will have you believe that the street of art is a kin to Monmarte in Paris and although it is not without its charm this is a little wide of the mark. The street is easily reached from the main shopping area of down town Gwangju and is worth a stroll if your in the area.
The renovated street is home to several commercial galleries along with four or five art supply shops and a few cafes. If you catch it on a good day there is plenty to do and see, but these days are hard to predict and few. Art Street certainly provides a welcome counter balance to the crazed shopping crowds just five minutes away and the small shops offer some interesting Korean souvenirs such as calligraphy brushes.
