Pretty Perspectives in Seoul Forest
My dad said this photo reminded him of Game of Thrones, except the caption would read: Spring is coming, or, Spring is here. Hope you’re all enjoying the final season and the flower season as much as we are.
I let out a gasp when I saw this bridge in Seoul Forest that allows you to walk along the cherry treetops. Imagine how much more stunning it is when the blossoms are at peak bloom. We arrived a bit late to the party, and after some rain, but even still, I was on pink cloud nine.
One of the biggest perks of living in or traveling through Seoul is that most sites cost little to nothing to visit. Seoul Forest is open year-round and admission is free. It’s beautiful most times of the year, and besides appreciating the natural environment within the city, there are several activities you can spend a morning or afternoon doing—renting single or tandem bikes, having a picnic at giant-themed picnic tables (search 도시락 정원, or ‘lunchbox garden,’ to see what I mean), or feeding the deer who live by this very bridge.

Besides the cherry blossoms, there were small fields of tulips beginning to bloom. And there were many perspectives from which you could take it all in—the bridge and the benches that line the small stream flowing throughout the park photographed below, to name a couple.
