April 9th 2016 presented us with our first chance of experiencing the Yeouido Cherry Blossom Festival (also known as the Spring Flower Festival) held in Yeouido Park, Seoul. The Yoshino Cherry Blossom tree originates from Jeju Island but there are around 1,886 Yoshino trees in Yeouido. Apart from all the beautiful cherry blossoms, there were roughly 87,859 spring flowers in bloom across Yeouido Park.
The weather was not great, but the many food stalls, live performances and large crowds made for a buzzing atmosphere and memorable day.
