Yeongdeungpo Yeouido Spring Flower Festival – Seoulistic

Yeongdeungpo Yeouido Spring Flower Festival

At this festival, thousands of blushing white petals with varying tints of pink takeover and it’s paradise for any cherry blossom lover. Previously known as the Yeouido Cherry Blossom festival, the festival’s full name changed just a few years ago. Consistently one of the park’s most well-known events, there are more than 1,800 cherry blossom trees here on Yeouiseo-ro Road (Yunjung-no) as well as azaleas, forsythia, and other spring flowers. Although the exact dates of the festival vary from year to year, it takes place sometime between mid-March to mid-April. The park designates volunteers and walking routes to guide the hundreds of visitors here and there are even lights up on the trees for beautiful nighttime views. On weekends and on evenings after 6pm, the park is extremely crowded when the festival is going on. (It’s nearly impossible to get a people-less picture of the trees.) If you’re not a fan of sharing, try to visit the park at off-peak times.
