Around Korea part 1: Hampyeong-gun Butterflies Festival

In a beautiful spot of Jeollanam-do province in South Korea, the celebration of butterflies is happening from April 27th to May 8th. We went there on the opening day of the festival and it was a beautiful day. The weather was perfect for a picnic: warm but not hot, with fresh breezes.
There are a few restaurants that serve Korean food only and it was my first time to have Bulgogi with Ttokkboki and it was delicious. The activities are limited and the golden bat exhibit doesn’t have any bats. And what made me sad was some school children were on a field trip and some of them were catching the butterflies and their teacher didn’t stop them. There is an open area where you can play with chicks and rabbits and see farm animals.
The Korean traditional performance started in late afternoon, just a few minutes before we had to leave to catch the train home, but I enjoyed the opening of the performance.
