On my way to work today I decided to take a detour and walk along the Government Complex of Daejeon. The building and its ground occupy a large portion of land in Dunsan-dong and part of it is open to the public. As I was power-walking my way through, I had to stop and take a few photos as the park ground of the building was blossoming with spring flowers and the best part – no crowd at all.
It seems that every spring Korea is buzzing with cherry blossom fever at around this time of the year. No wonder people are excited to go see the flower trees at the “hottest viewing spots” such as Jinhae or Yeouido as you cannot deny that these trees are more beautiful when many of them are together and are in full bloom. Near the city of Daejeon, the cherry blossom festival held at Donghaksa temple in Gyeryongsan Mountain is famous among those seeking a perfect photo zone.
