One of my favorite festivals in Korea is the Lantern Festival in Jinju. It is fantastic. They have lanterns floating in the river, and decorating all of the surrounding areas. Unfortunately, I didn’t arrive in Jinju until quite late at night, but I heard it’s really beautiful at dusk and we have plans to go back in 2013 to find out!
Location: 626, Namgang-ro, Jinju-si, Gyeongsangnam-do
Date: October 1-13, 2013. (It’s around this same time each year)
Website: The official website still has last year’s dates up, but you can use the Visit Korea page about this festival for more details.
