The city of Gwangju, montage, photos from Wikimedia Commons

Gwangju is the nearest sizable city and if you want somewhere with entertainment and attraction options other than those provided at the circuit you may want to stay here. It is a city of over a million people and dates back to around 57BC. If you head to the city after a day at the circuit you will be able to enjoy the night market. Korea has a fascinating history that few in the west appreciate, if you want to know more and take in some culture the National Museum in Gwangju includes artefacts and art from Korea’s history.
