The giant bamboo forest area makes Damyang Korea's capital of bamboo. A festival of bamboo reveals how much use this plant can bring us in our daily life.

At the festival you'll have the opportunity to fish with a bamboo basket on your own, to sample dishes made of bamboo shoots, taste typical Korean alcohol brewed in bamboo stalks, as well as engage in bamboo drawing and other crafts.
