Festivals year round

Gunpo Azalea Festival

Flowers are everywhere and flower festivals are in spitting distance. Hence cherry blossoms had long been off, azaleas are slaying the peninsula in vibrant colors.

Azalea flowers lasts for several weeks and fancied by its bright colors, form and foliage. With its varieties it’s popularly known as “The Royalty of Garden”. In Korea, pink mountains are on the spotlight these days. 

Hills and mountains are fully covered with pìnk azaleas that made the scenery pretty awesome from a distance. I’ve been to Azalea garden at Wonmisan and it was certainly stunning. Cherry blossoms and forsythias blended well with the azaleas that time.

Last Saturday when we visited the Gunpo Royal Azalea Hill, it wasn’t full bloom yet and the festival will be held on April 28-30. Eventhough it wasn’t festival time, the hill was eventually a sea of pink and crowd were thick. Programs were held on performance stage.

This royal azalea garden is worth to visit this weekend and if you’re a flower lover it will surely give you a wondrous spring.

Direction: Take Line 4 to Surisan Station..exit 3. Walk straight passing the park. You’ll find a map and the entrance after 5 minutes walk.
