Jinhae Gunhangje Festival (진해군항제)
Jinhae is a district of Changwon province, a bit far from Seoul, but it's especially famous for the Cherry Blossom festivall held there for 10 days starting from the 1st of April. Jinhae may be a bit unaccessible if you don't speak korean, but it's definitely instagram worth it!
The view from Jehwangsan Park it's breathtaking. Through the park you can reach the Tower, one of the highest spots to admire the Cherry trees from up. The buildings get painted in pink, and the view is worth the small hike.
the most famous spot in Jinhae is the Yeowajcheon Stream, where the long stream is surrounded by wooden fences and cherry trees. Obviously it's also the most crowded spot and everyone has their camera ready to catch a glimpse of the beautiful cherry petal rain happening everytime the wind blows!
The instagrammable places in Jinhae available are not over, because another very famous spot is the Gyeonghwa station, where the railroad surrounded by blossoming trees offers wonderful chances to score a pretty picture. The pretty spot is really crowded, so we suggest to go as soon as possible.
In case you were too late...well, Jinhae is beautiful at night as well. While during the day it offers the View of the Victory Parade and various cultural activities take place, the city turns out to become an even prettier spot for the couples at night.
The stream is all lightened up, just like the park, and fireworks can be admired during the Festival time.
