Want to find out the best places to view the amazing king cherry blossoms in Korea?

As their name suggests, these cherry blossoms are a spectacular variant of the normal pink-tinged flora we usually see in the Spring.

Most importantly, they are a special kind of native variety originating from Jeju Island. Characteristically, they usually bloom later on in Spring around April, usually around a month after the usual blooming period of cherry blossoms. What makes these double-flowering cherry blossoms stand out and give them their moniker is the fact that they are darker in color and much more impressive.

Don’t you want to find out for yourselves? Why not join us on a King Cherry Blossom Tour this Spring, just in time for them to bloom.

The first place you can spot some amazing king cherry blossom trees is Yangpyeong Dumulmeori. Dumulmeori meaning ‘two heads of water’, is where the North Hangang River and South meet. The river, together with 400-year-old Zelkova trees, offers a beautiful scenic view and is also a frequent backdrop in several movies and TV dramas for its beauty. To add king cherry blossoms to that would just be sublime.

On the east, right across the outskirts of Seoul, Misari Speedboat Park offers another sight for sore eyes in the Spring. What used to be the site for rowing competitions for the Asian Games and Olympics Games has now been transformed into a pleasant little park for all. It’s a great place to chill and enjoy the cherry blossoms fluttering around with the Spring breeze.

3. Gaesimsa Temple

Taking a step away from the metropolitan area, located up in the mountains in Seosan is the Gaesima Temple. Though it is situated in quite a remote location, the Gaesima Temple is one of several major temples in Korea. Most importantly, with the magnificent Sangwangsan Mountain in the back, it creates the most fantastic view when the king cherry blossoms are in full bloom!

4. Munsusa Temple

| Location: 40 Taebong-ri, Unsan-myeon, Seosan-si, Chungcheongnam-do

To the north of Sangwangsan Mountain is another unique temple you must visit – Munsusa Temple. With dozens of pink king cherry blossom trees lining the roads and adding a touch of vibrance to the atmosphere, you’ll feel like you’re in a paradise of your own.

Turning into a literal bed of flowers, the park is filled with not only cherry blossoms but many other florae such as royal azaleas. With cherry blossoms blooming until late springtime, Wansan Park is the perfect place for those looking to jump into the cherry blossom game a little later on.
