Gwangju city has received first prize for the Promotion of Tourism, at the Korea World Travel Fair. The prize was awarded for the city's aggressive publicity for its sightseeing areas, as well as various international events such as the 2015 Gwangju Summer University Games, Gwangju World Photonics Expo, and the Kimchi Festival.
Really? I hope we're talking about domestic tourism here, because while I admit winning the 2015 Summer Universiade was quite a victory---at least among those who know what it is---I can tell you that finding English-language information about events, tourist spots, and news is quite a challenge. There is no English-language paper down here, for example, and even the Gwangju Kimchi Culture Festival website is only in Korean. But, I guess when you're a country about 83% the size of Pennsylvania, the far end is bound to win some local tourism awards.
