Dongje Art Gallery
Having fun at the park, we need some laid-back tea time. Passing Gachang Dam Reservior from the park, you can arrive at Dongje Art Gallery. The garden is beautifully decorated with trees, flowers, and plants subtly accentuated with red sculptures. What people love about this gallery is that quality exhibitions change regularly considering the size and location of the gallery. It also offers a cafe area where comfy sofas and traditional floor tables welcome visitors. The cafe is also filled with framed arts, antique items and so many more interior points to create a laid-back and inviting atmosphere. Additionally, you can let your kid play on lawn if you have an adrenaline-filled child with you!
