Heart and Seoul 2014 – Cherry Blossoms in Nami Island

This is part of a series of posts under the category Heart and Seoul 2014.

Even if I have already visited Nami Island in 2012, my second visit last April was nothing less spectacular or memorable. I had the time of my life being back there, seeing new things, and re-discovering the old ones with my hubby and baby. In fact, I made sure our family had a picture at the exact same spot I had one in 2012. And yes, we had to be in matchy-matchy attire!

For this post, I would just like to focus on the cherry blossoms because as I mentioned earlier, the theme of our travel to Seoul this year was Chasing The Cherry Blossoms. You can find cherry blossoms in a lot of places throughout Seoul during Spring. Some places may have more of them than the others but they will always be photogenic wherever you find them. We found some sporadically located throughout the city. We found some  in Gyeongbok palace and at the National Folk Museum. We also found a lot of them on the mountains on our way to Seoul from the Incheon airport.

But for me, what gave us the best view of the cherry blossoms was the trip to Nami Island or Petit France. Take note that it’s not Nami Island per se but the trip to the island and Petit France. Be sure to look out the window of the bus or car you’re riding and be prepared to be mesmerized by the scenery. Had we known that it’s gonna be that beautiful, we would’ve skipped the Yeouido trip and saved our soles instead.

And so without any further blab, enjoy the photos below!

      Hi there, thanks 🙂 We were there from April 10 to 15, a bit towards the tail end of the cherry blossoms season which started early this year. Best to be there around the last week of March to first week of April where the cherry blossoms are in full bloom.
