2015 Rose Festival in Korea

Spring is a season of flowers, blooming with different sizes and shapes, brightly yet colorfully presented to human eyes, not to even mention about the sweet scents. Being able to see such romantically bloomed flowers with your own eyes every year is just a blessing.

Not sure about you guys out there, but for me, I personally find that the Rose Festivals are one of the most romantic events that Korea could ever have. Thus, I have done a list of the top 3 places where you could submerge yourself in a pool of wild and beautiful roses.
