One of Korea’s most popular annual spring festivals is the Jinhae Gunhangjae Festival. It started as a memorial service to commemorate Joseon period’s most noteworthy naval admiral but now has developed into the nation’s top visited place for cherry blossom season. The breathtaking view of Gyeonghwa station and Yeogwacheon Stream, Jinhye’s best spots, would make your jaw drop. To stress on how beautiful they are, we just wanted to point out that they make it to CNN’s “50 beautiful places to visit in South Korea“, ranking #5th and #19th respectively.
From April 1 to 10, 2019.
