Now that the spring breeze is in the air, you can see spring flowers everywhere in Busan. Some of these places, in particular, have beautiful views that can only be found during this season, so dust off your camera and take the pictures of the day in Busan.
Oryukdo Sunrise Park
Sometimes, healing is as simple as watching the view of the glittering sea, the yellow daffodils and mustard flowers, and Oryukdo Islets beyond from the Oryukdo Sunrise Park. The starting point of the Haeparang Trail Course 1 is connected to Igidae Waterside Park, another famous scenic spot, with a wooden decked road.
Follow the trail to the hill to find a golden field of daffodils and mustard flowers. Just pick a spot that overlooks the sea, and you’ll have the centerpiece of your spring album.
Oryukdo Sunrise Park’s unique charm is certainly the fact that you can enjoy the sea and the spring flowers at the same time. The silhouette of the Oryukdo Islets on the sea rounds out one of the most celebrated and popular sceneries in Busan in springtime.
With each step upward on the wooden decked road, you can meet the mustard flowers and cherry blossoms above. This trail also leads to Igidae Waterside Park.
Need to take a breather? Step into the nearby cafes, where you can enjoy the colorful view of the area with your cup of coffee. Some cafes have rooftop seats, from which you can have an expansive view of the surrounding areas.
Oryukdo Skywalk is an integral part of any visit to the Oryukdo Sunrise Park. This observation platform delights thrill-seekers with a chance to walk above the sea on a reinforced glass floor. If you’ve had a fill of peace and healing with the daffodils and mustard flowers on the hill, give yourself a jolt of life with the thrilling view of the Skywalk!
Daejeo Eco Park
Fancy a walk through a yellow field? Head to Daejeo Eco Park! This riverside park has a massive field of mustard flowers next to the Nakdonggang River. There are trails that take you into the fields, and what better way to enjoy the golden waves of mustard flowers under the spring sun than being in that wave of gold?
The opening of the mustard flowerbed in Daejeo Eco Park this year is particularly meaningful to the people of Busan because the park had been closed to the public for the past three years because of the COVID-19 pandemic. Perhaps because of that, a huge number of visitors is expected to visit here this spring. Of course, the sheer size of the field ensures that you won’t be crowded out of your frame. Mustard flowers here begin to bloom in early April and reach full bloom in mid-April, so April is indeed the best time to enjoy the view here.
This is unsurprisingly a great place to take a picture for your spring trip in Busan.
But gold is not the only color in Daejeo Eco Park in spring; the park also sees a splash of pink from the cherry blossoms. After all, this is the starting point of the “Nakdonggangbyeon Samsimni Cherry Blossom Road,” a 12 km-long road of cherry trees that stretch along the Nakdonggang River. Mustard flowers on one side, the “cherry blossom tunnel” on the other; this is truly a place to enjoy the serenity of the spring.
Hwamyeong Eco Park
Nakdonggang River is home to a number of different ecological parks. One such ecological park rivals the springtime view at Daejeo Eco Park: That’s the Hwamyeong Eco Park, Busan’s most beloved sanctuary for tulip flowers. It is home to thousands of colorful tulip flowers, from pink to red, white, yellow, and purple.
Tulip flowers that boast their vivid colors must be the best backdrop for the pretty picture of the day. Tulips bloom until May at Hwamyeong Eco Park, so take that into account for your photography trip. The unique charm of tulip flowers is certainly a worthy, flamboyant addition to your spring album.
Hwamyeong Eco Park’s size also means that the park also accommodates pure-white cherry blossoms in addition to tulip fields. Just place a mat below the shade of the cherry tree, and you have a great place for a springtime picnic. Feast on your lunchbox and take a walk along the Daecheoncheon Stream to get the most out of your picnic.
