Trip Report Korea. Jinhae. The Cherry Blossom.

There are lots of cherry blossom cool spots in Korea. At the same latitude, cherry blossom in Korea somehow come a little later than Japan; and their locations are often more spontaneous – unlike Japan, they may not be planted orderly in a park or heritage sites, instead you find them lining up on the side of the road, or randomly grown in nature.

Some travelers decide where to go depending on where the cherries are blooming during their time of visit. As for the annual Jinhae Gunhangje, it’s a designated cherry blossom Festival held in this navy harbour - as I know, 2016 will be held from 30 March to 3 Apr.

I put Jinhae in my Busan trip’s itinerary as I saw the beautiful picture on travel websites and found this breathtaking stream called Yeojwacheon. The Yeojwacheon Stream’s Wooden Walkway offers a unique view of the cherry blossom on top and canola flowers at the bottom along the stream. Taking photos in the middle of the footbridge across the stream, the far end is just perfect as a vanishing point of the photo; and that’s where I headed straight away once I got off the bus in Jinhae.

My plan for the day:
Taking off in Busan > Jinhae > Yeojwacheon Stream’s Wooden Walkway > Jangboksan Sculpture Park > Jinhae Gunhagje – Jinhae Jungwon Rotary Intersection and Jinhae area > Jinhae Naval Museum > Jehwangsan Park > Final Walk Around the Festival and street performance

The Yeojwacheon is a long walkway and, therefore we took our time enjoying the amazing view.

It was a bit of a shame that we didn’t have enough time to go up the Amin Road – Google it, it’s a road on the hill with Cherry trees lined up along the road. If visitors don’t rent a car, it is possible to go there with a taxi (but make sure you have the contact or able to call one on the way back). However, now this road is extremely famous, the traffic is horrendous at peak hours, and peak seasons and you might stuck on the road..

Also heard that there are fireworks during the festival time ~
