This weekend we braved the Korean festival crowds to head to Yeouido, an island in the center the Han River in the middle of Seoul for the annual Yeouido Cherry Blossom Festival.
I love cherry blossoms! I love spring! I don’t like moving in an uncontrollable direction as the crowd pushes me forward. Luckily we got there early in the afternoon and avoided the really crazy crowds. By the time we left around 4:30 PM we were just being shoved in the general direction of the subway station. But before that we got to enjoy the floating petals and people watching. Lots of selfie sticks, lots of flowers, and lots of loving couples strolling under the spring blossoms.
How to Get There:
Line 5 Yeouinaru Stn. Exit 1, walk 15 minutes
Line 9 National Assembly Stn. Exit 6, walk 5 minutes
