So go ahead and see for yourself the spectacular scenery at cherry blossom festivals that will take place in Seoul in 2016!


Jinhae Cherry Blossom Festival

April 4th and 5th, 2015 marked the peak weekend for cherry blossoms here in South Korea, which meant it was time to travel with Enjoy Korea to the small seaport town of Jinhae for the annual Cherry Blossom Festival! The roughly $30 registration fee provided us with timely and convenient transportation that dropped us off, and picked us up, right in the middle of the action. And the tour schedule allowed for everyone to just do their own thing for the whole afternoon once we arrived! I’ve booked tours with Enjoy Korea twice now, and will do so again for the Mud Festival in July. I highly recommend them!


It's Cherry Blossom time!

Cherry Blossoms most delicately and bewitchingly herald the onset of Spring in Korea. These gossamer flowers are at their zenith only for three days in a year. An entire road overlooking the Yeouido park, adjoining the National Assembly building of Seoul has around 1400 cherry blossom trees. The entire street is closed for vehicular traffic and is in a festive mood for the Cherry Blossom festival which runs for five days. It is tradition for the couples to walk along the flowery lane, which they feel will strengthen their love and happiness. Today was the last day of the Cherry Blossom festival in Yeouido.

Cherry Blossom Festival

Welcome back to the Jinhae Cherry Blossom Festival.  For those of you loyal readers you will remember that I've gone here before and had a great time.  This time around things were still really nice and I had a great time, but man was it ever busiser than the time before.  This time we had to wait 3 hours to get a bus back to Busan (a one hour bus trip).

My last spin across the dance floor that is Korea, I was reluctant to make my apartment into a home.  I was only going to be there for a year so why buy much?  Well my return has hopefully made me a bit wiser, but only time will tell.

 Last year I put up a few posters up on the walls and a few drawings later in the year done by my students, but beyond that I didn't change much.
