Walk into Spring with the Blooming of Plum Blossoms and Cornelia Cherry Flowers

Gwangyang International Maehwa Festival is held in the middle of March at a village called Seomjin, home to Korea’s largest number of plum blossom trees. During this time of the year, the plum blossoms (maehwa in Korean) cover the mountains and the riverbanks with their pure white color which creates a mesmerizing scenery. Visitors can enjoy a stroll under the plum blossoms as well as sample and buy local organic products made from plum. The festival also includes many interesting programs such as fashion shows, cooking shows, and busking performances. 

Along with Gwangyang Maehwa Festival, Gurye Sansuyu Festival is another mainspring flower festival that represents Jeollanam Province. The festival takes place in the Jirisan Mountain hot springs area. For Korean people, sansuyu (cornelian cherry flower) is considered as the messenger of spring because it is the first spring flower to bloom in its brilliant yellow color. Main programs of the festival include an exhibition of local products made from sansuyu fruits, experience programs as well as traditional music and dance performances.
