The spring season comes like clockwork in Korea. So much so, you can basically plan to head over to a flower festival or two during the middle of April. This year was no exception, and as you have seen a post or two back, spring is most definitely here.
Gyeongju is the traditional city of Korea. As soon as you arrive within the city limits you’re surrounded by old brick walls, the trademark Asian slate roofing, ancient tombs, and flowers. Lots of flowers! We decided to head up to Gyeongju during their Cherry Blossom Festival to score some awesome food, and enjoy the spring activities. We rented bikes for the day at $7.00 a piece, and went for a long ride.
Unfortunately since we were on our bikes all day I didn’t spend much time capturing the beauty for this place. I’d like to go back someday soon when there are less people running around the city, and we have better weather (we had to end our day early due to rain).
