Cherry blossom trees are blooming, which means that Spring is here! I love seeing all the beautiful pink flowers, even though they don’t even last two weeks. Maybe that’s what makes them more special?
This year we stayed in Busan instead of going to the Jinhae Cherry Blossom Festival like we’d done the last two years. The crowds were still around and the flowers a little less plentiful, but I was thankful to avoid the long lines for the bus back-and-forth.
We checked out the trees in two different spots.
1. Namcheon-dong Road and Samik Beach Apartments
Hundreds of cherry blossom trees line the Namcheon-dong Road by the Samik Beach Apartments with close-up views of the famous Diamond Bridge.
How to get there: Take subway line 2 to Geumyeonsan station, exit 5 and walk towards Gwangali Beach. At the beach, take a right and walk towards the apartment towers at the end of the strip.
2. Dalmaji Hill
A winding clifftop road with open coastal views as far as Japan. Fun cafes, restaurants, and Dalmaji Amphitheater at the top.
How to get there: Take metro line 2 to Jungdong station and walk up the hill from the E-mart.
