Spring is coming! Korea will be the cute girl look a like in spring. One of the famous flower that must be seen when spring in Korea is 벚꽃 or cherry blossom. There are many ways to enjoy cherry blossoms in Korea and I’ll give you some suggestions that you can choose. Make the unforgetable moments of spring in Korea with your own style! ^^
Romantic journey under the cherry blossoms theme:
Hadong is the perfect location to enjoy cherry blossoms in a romantic way. I think it will be more perfect if we take a journey with a motorcycle in 6-km road fully of cherry blossoms all the way! ^^.
Gears to use : video camera.
Take an intercity bus to Gurye Intercity Bus Terminal.
Transfer to a local bus bound for Hwagae (화개) or Ssanggyesa Temple.

Adventure funny theme
If you like to enjoy cherry blossom in Korea with unique way, more adventure but funny, you should go to the Gyeonghwa station. Gyeonghwa Station is a railway station in the far south of Gyeongsang-do. To the north is Seongjusa Station and to the south is Jinhae Station.
Gears to use : video camera or camera with long fixed lens or tele lens (70-200mm length or more than that)
Still in Jinhae, if you like to enjoy cherry blossoms with a lot of activities in festival, you should go to the largest cherry blossoms festival in Korea named The Jinhae Gunhang festival.
Mountain and River in the City’s theme
Seoul is also perfect to watch fully blooming of cherry blossoms in Korea. After you go to Namsan, you can continue your cherry blossom journey near the Han river. You can ride a bicycle or bring your pet also there.
Gears to use : video camera or camera with wide lens or macro lens.
