Recognised as one of the top five tulip festivals by the World Tulip Summit Society, the Taean Tulip Festival begins welcoming visitors from mid-April. Don’t forget your cameras – there are over a million tulips of over 300 different species that you will definitely want to capture for the memories!
Besides the tulip festival, the Taean Peninsula is also home to the Cheollipo Arboretum botanical gardens, one of the most beautiful in Korea. Located in the Taean Coast National Park, you can also opt to stay in one of the many chic accommodations at the gardens.
And what’s a trip to Korea without visiting Jeju-do? From late March to early April, the island is awash with a bright yellow hue from the numerous canola flowers. Be sure to take a drive through the road to Jeongseok Aviation Pavillion – lined with canola blossoms, it’s recognised as one of 100 most beautiful roads in Korea.
Imagine a mountainous terrain filled with cherry blossoms, peonies, hydrangeas and camellias – Yangmingshan National Park is transformed into a garden every February to March during the Yangmingshan Flower Festival. The festival follows a different theme every year and attracts over a million visitors annually.
For sakura heaven, head to Wuling Farm, a top attraction all year round. The area is a pink haze during spring and is also home to several fruit farms and local wildlife.
