2011 Cherry Blossoms Festivals in Korea

One of the most awaited events in spring is the cherry blossom festival. The KMA, Korea Meteorological Agency, has not issued the expected dates for the cherry blossoms to bloom. Some local governments have already schedule their cherry blossoms festival.
Here is a short list:
2011.03.29 – Busan City’s Cheonghakdong Cherry Blossoms Festival
2011.04.01 – 2011.04.11 – Jinhae (South Gyeongsang province)
2011.04.01 – 2011.04.03 – Jeju-do
2011.04.09 – Gyeongju’s Cherry Blossoms Marathon
It’s a real short list, right? I’ll update the list when the government issues the estimated dates when the cherry blossoms bloom in Korea. In the meantime, I’d like to have my own garden at our apartment’s veranda. I don’t really have a green thumb, like my mom, but I could get some help with hydroponics. I’d love to grow lettuce leaves and green pepper so I won’t have to buy them whenever we have “samgyeopsal” at home.


  1. It’s amazing how Korea and Japan can predict the day when the cherry blossoms will bloom. I’ve read somewhere that Korea is getting warmer that’s why the days when the flowers were supposed to bloom shortened. It’s not only for cherry blossoms but for the other plants as well like ginko(?) trees.

  2. Ate betchay..
