‘Cherry Blossom Drive’ Route in Jeonju

 

Flowers are blooming all over Jeonju as temperature has risen. Suddenly, spring is everywhere. Jeonju has several ‘cherry blossom drive’ routes such as those ones near the Jeonju Zoo and the Provincial Office. But, I visited more locally known one which is about ten kilometers long.

▲ Today’s ‘cherry blossom drive’ route

 

As soon as I passed the Chuchundaegyo Bridge (direction Jeonju), I took the riverside road (direction opposite of the Provincial Office).

The road narrowed soon. When the apartments disappeared from the sight, I was fascinated by the cherry blossom trees creating the tunnel of flowers from the both sides of the road.

There was occasional queue of cars driving by. You may park the car on the roadsides and walk. People were taking pictures with their families, friends, and significant others. Some even appeared to be professional photographers. But I had to be aware of the passing cars since it is a countryside  road.

After driving along the Jeonjuchun River for a while, I came across the wider Mangyunggang River. Pleasant cool breeze was blowing from the river. The tunnel of cherry blossoms didn’t seem to end.

I stopped the car and walked down to the riverbank. I wanted to take pictures with my child. The sprouting fresh greens and the pink of blossoms were telling me that spring is finally here.

Much of the cherry blossoms usually fall after the spring rain. I recommend going for a drive before the rainy days start!

The cherry blossoms still weren’t in full bloom. It would be awesome to drive through the rain of cherry blossom petals scattering in the wind.

You don’t have to travel far to enjoy such a picturesque scenery. Must be better if the sky is blue and sun is shining.

In the coming weeks, I recommend a short drive around Jeonju to enjoy the cherry blossoms and spring breeze. It’s only this time of the year!

    I’m planning my cherry blossom trip and this info is helpful. I would consider putting this in my list. 🙂

  • I’ve found several great locations to view the cherry blossoms here!

  • Lannie Alava Yun

    Great driving route with such beautiful scenery!

  • The cherry blossoms in Jeonju are some of the best in Korea I hear!

  • lesley g

    Hope I can see them before they disappear!

  • Adila Ayub

    Spring is my favourite season. I wish I can spend my time during spring in Jeonju 🙂

  • Arielle Pukanecz

    One of my favorite spots to see the cherry blossoms!!!

  • Sara Rousalova

    These pictures are so breathtaking! I always wanted to visit Jeonju and I think now is the right time to truly enjoy the spring!

  • If you come during the Spring, you cannot miss places like this and enjoy such a beautiful event like cherry blossom season, weather is lovely and the environment feels so enchanted by the petals flying around when the wind blows, you will be in love with it instantly! If you like having a photoshoot day, I highly recommend you come very early and check some photos online to get some ideas of colors to wear that match the colors of the trees, Korean people are experts on this and maybe you want to get a very special photo set when visiting here! 🙂

  • Elysia Toh

    The cherry blossoms really make for a Korean-drama worthy spot, haha. I half expect a drama crew to show up and start filming some heartwarming scenes in this spot.

  • izmirK

    I sure will not miss this experience once the cherry blossoms start to bloom!

  • Ada Choy

    Ahhh so pretty! Wish I had a car so that a drive through here would be possible T___T

    wow, so beautiful. Surely I should pay a visit next week. Just wonder how long will cherry blossom last?

  • John christian

    I just love walking to the street of cherry blossoms in jeonju city while listening to bigbang’s Flower Road. It’s never cease to amaze me how wonderful the trees and sceneries in jeonju blends beautifully together.

  • Alaa Tarek

    I remember being there in Autumn and it was amazing, such a beautiful place!
    I have to visit it in spring also ^^

  • Kristy

    It’s just too far away from Seoul 😢 is there a faster way?

    • Dimas Yunianto Putro

      I think go here by express bus is the best option from central terminal

  • Kittipot Imjard

    I wanna go there 😮

  • Joshua Garcia

    The cherry blossom in Korea is a unique experience that works as a signal to the start of spring, Korea is a country know as the ‘4 seasons country’ and experiencing it in jeonju is one of the best ways to do it.

  • GameGambier 101

    I think you did well on taking the picture with the angles though I think one of the improvement that you could do is make sure the exposure is right and the camera is in focus as some of the picture are slightly a bit out of focus.

  • Dj Noona

    Wow! The scenery view is amazing!! Definitely, the cherry blossoms are so beautiful and delicate, if you come to Korea in Spring season, I promise you is going to be an unique experience! Specially if you visit to Jeonju, this view looks so wonderful!

  • Wow! The scenery view is amazing!! Definitely, the cherry blossoms are so beautiful and delicate, if you come to Korea in Spring season, I promise you is going to be an unique experience! Specially if you visit to Jeonju, this view looks so wonderful!

  • Victoria T

    THAT’S SO BEAUTIFUL omg the cherry blossoms are on another level.

  • Aysha

    I’m so happy that cherry blossom season is finally here! I’m from a tropical country so Korean winters are too much for me to handle, so the warmth of spring makes me really happy, especially if it comes with beautiful scenery such as this one. I would love to go see the cherry blossoms in Jeonju one day!

  • Melissa

    I don’t want the cherry blossoms to go away yet 🙁 They’re too beautiful!

    One suggestion, Jeonju city should provide a double deck bus tour for the cherry blossoms.
    Most foreigners do not have a car and that would attract more visits. 🙂
