Part I - My 1-Day Gyeonggi-do Experience Near Seoul, Gangneung and Pyeongchang - the Gwangmyeong Cave Theme Park!

Gyeonggi province surrounds the city of Seoul and one of the things I like about it is that the subway reaches Suwon (and Everland which is in Gyeonggi-do also)! For our last day on this trip, we visited all these sites in Gyeonggi that you might want to visit! Part I is about Gwangmyeong Cave, which is located near The Grand Masterpiece Media Art Exhibit.

Masterpieces of Van Gogh and Monet were combined with IT technology like projection mapping and VR in this exhibition in Gwangmyeong.

If you're interested to check out this Gwangmyeong Urban Restoration Park Cultural Cluster then check out this site. If you don't want to walk then maybe check out the route of the Elephant car for 2000 won ;) Soon in July, they will open the Experience Mine Cultures activity where you can find gold, silver, gemstone and mineral.
