The Nakdong River Yuchae Flower Festival is only in its fourth year but it’s a really great festival that I’d recommend to everyone living nearby.
We are lucky because it is only a 30 minute subway ride from Gimhae to the festival. Myself, Jason and our friend Ian decided to go last Friday after school. Once we arrived I immediately fell in love with this small festival.
There were a few tents selling food and drinks but it’s nowhere near as big as the many other festivals that I’ve experienced here in Korea. For me, this just made the festival even more wonderful. There is a very laid back feel to it and there weren’t many people there.
As you can see from the photos, it was absolutely beautiful there and I’m sure sunrise would be magical as the sun rises from behind the city.
Take the brown line (line 3) of the Busan subway system to Gangseo-gu office. From there you can take exit number 2 and it’s about a 15 minute walk to the park.
