Yangnim-dong Yangnim-dong is the place where seeming dichotomies of Korean & Western, Confucian & Christian, and Tradition & Modernity coexist. It is also where Gwangju's original identity is best preserved. Historic sites such as House of Lee Jang-woo and House of Choi Seung-Hyo, the missionary trails and Western-style buildings can be observed.

ACC(Asia Culture Center) ACC is the world's largest multicultural space, and its above-ground park. An impressive sight, the overall theme is light and forest, which are the local symbols of Gwangju. ACC offers a variety of amenities and cultural experiences through exhibitions, performances, libraries, etc.

Gwangju River Cutting across downtown Gwangju, Gwangju River offers a stream-side park and resting area for citizens. Also the River is a natural habitat for various creatures.

Gwangju Greenways This ‘Gwangju Greenways (Gwangju Pureungil)’ was constructed on the site of a closed railroad. The road is the ‘lung’ of Gwangju; a type of paper road for enjoying ecology, culture and art. The road offers the scent of nature from trees, flowers and grass as well as the culture and art in Ssamji Park, a small square that invites performances.
