You're bound to have a great time at Birthplace of Yeongnang.
Some tourists like to see the national capital, Seoul, first. Once you're finished there, it's 200 miles (322 kilometers) to Gangjin, where the attraction is to be found.
Though there aren't anywhere to stay in the immediate vicinity, all is not lost. The Holiday Inn Gwangju, 35 miles (56 kilometers) away, and the Ramada Plaza Gwangju, 35 miles (56 kilometers) away, are a couple of choices that might fit in with your schedule. If not, 65 miles (105 kilometers) away is the Kensington Resort Hadong.
There is nothing like exploring an unfamiliar place to build up an appetite. After you're finished at Birthplace of Yeongnang, boost your energy levels a short walk away, at Gomdabang. A well-known dining establishment which is also close by is 티바두마리치킨. It's a great choice if you're especially hungry and you need something a bit more indulgent. Visitors who are in need of a nightcap should pull up a stool at 친구끼리, another brief walk down the street.
