Gwangju City hall has recently released their top picks of where to see cherry blossoms around Gwangju!
There are so many and hopefully you will be able to enjoy them as they are set to start opening this weekend and then into next. Be sure to catch them while you can as some rain is predicted to fall later on in next week and might wash them away.
Stay hydrated and keep those allergy pills handy, also don’t forget to charge your phone, take an extra power bank and pack a picnic.
Sangrok hall near Usquare or Hwajeong subway. Due to construction they have moved many of the trees so it is not as impressive as it was. I would suggest picking one of the other spots below.
Uncheon Reservoir – near Sangmu is my favorite place to check out the blossoms. Expect crowds.
Gwangju stream – even though there aren’t many trees toward downtown if you venture further around the Sangmu area it looks really beautiful. Probably best if you have your own transport or if you take the bus towards the Airport and further into Gwangsan area.
Jungoe Park near Bienalle. Be advised the theme park is closed.
Jisan YooWon Ji where you can also take the mono-rail on Mudeung mountain.
If you are student then you can see some impressive blossoms at Chosun or Cheonnam Universities.
