Now I love Bamboo! I think that it is such a beautiful piece of nature, So I was excited to hear that there is a Bamboo festival in Korea.


Damyang Bamboo Forest has eight trails that you can take, from the most popular Lovers’ Road, Old Memory Bypath, and Philosopher’s Road. If you follow the trails they will lead you to pavilions, waterfalls, and stone stairs. The gorgeous path of trees is another popular attraction of Damyang! The road is included on the list of Korea’s 100 Most Beautiful Roads and sees many visitors every year. Also, there is a cute shopping town you can enjoy in Meta Province, which is fun for all the family and definitely worth a visit!

The Damyang Bamboo Festival in South Jeolla Province is set to captivate visitors from May 11 to 15 with an array of immersive programs.


Hosted at the outdoor stage in the Juknokwon Bamboo Forest area, this visitor-driven festival invites attendees to directly experience and enjoy the festivities, by enjoying food (Korean beef) and checking out local offerings from stalls at the event, and of course, you can enjoy performances while you are there too!

This year's event will also see a better nighttime offering than in the past, which I think is great, as the lanterns will create a nice ambiance for photos and memories!





Visitors can enjoy the Juknokwon Bamboo Forest by purchasing an entrance ticket (3,000 won), which will be provided as a coupon redeemable at local stores. Which is a fantastic price to pay for such a spectacular event!
