Flowering in Art and Culture, Lively with Tourism: South Jeolla Province

Welcome to the home page of JACT, Jeollanam-do Association for Cultural Tourism.

We at JACT strive to bring the beauty of Namdo culture by developing and restoring traditional art and culture of the region, and promoting public awareness toward the goodness of the Namdo culture.

And rightly so, we are blessed with the beautiful nature of Namdo and its rich cuisine across the four seasons.
More than two thous and beautiful islands, wide mudflats, and fresh food from clean nature also make South Jeolla a great tourist destination.

The pristine nature of South Jeolla will help heal your mind and body, and restore the joie de vivre of your everyday life.

JACT strives to use the excellence of Namdo’s culture and tourist resources to build a unique system of marketing with focus on art, culture, and tourism.

We will do our best to ensure that the people of South Jeolla and its visitors can enjoy a life rich in art and culture, and to bring even more life into the Namdo region with tourism.
We ask for your support and goodwill as we turn this goal into reality.
