Damyang Photos

Chris, my colleague asked me to join him with our visitors from Taiwan for a trip to Damyang. Below are photos I took from the place. Damyang is famous for its Bamboo Park and see the products and other collaterals made from bamboo.

I think the Bamboo Festival will be in May, next month. If you can understand Korean - check out their website at - www.damyang.go.kr

There is English section but as usual it is not interactive and just info about the place.

Go and visit the place it is a beautiful nature park. On weekends I learned that performances are held for the public.
