Korea’s perishing winter has gone. The weather is getting warm, spring flowers with vivid colors start blooming, and it’s high time we planned a day trip to Everland, the biggest theme park in Korea. Yay!
Let’s have a look at what we’ve got here today:)
1. Everland Tulip Festival 2017
Four Seasons Garden at Everland is filled with 1.2 million spring flowers including tulips, daffodils, and grape hyacinths. The garden features sculptures and paths decorated with colorful spring flowers. Visitors love the 26 meter-tall Flower Magic Tower, a perfect photo spot for your Instagram!
However, we strongly recommend staying at Everland until the night falls. The reason is simple; the longer you stay, the more fun you come across. Evening shows and events will greet visitors who stay until late in the evening. For example, the fireworks show “Romance in the Sky” is held at 8 pm.
With the rich fragrance of spring flowers, the fireworks at night will make your day out at Everland even more romantic. Seize this wonderful moment with your beloved ones.
Make sure to check out the detailed schedule for the fireworks at Everland official website.
Trazy’s Everland Full Day Package shuttle bus leaves Everland at 9:15 pm (10:15 pm from April to October), which allows you to catch the night parades and fireworks.
