There are lots of parks and other places around the peninsula with a stunning view of cherry blossoms. Here are my suggested awesome places.



If you’re looking for an exceptional panorama of this sweet flower, I’ll share to you my top favorite, the cherry blossoms at Seoul National Cemetery located at Dongjak station. Why is it one-of-kind? Well, unlike the others the trees here are called “the weeping sakuras”. The flowers are almost touching the ground and flowing like tears.
