It's popular cherry blossoms festival in Korea. Thousands of tourists visit this place to view the well organised cherry blossoms alongside a foot bridge. There are also food stalls nearby to cater for the festival.

Honestly blossom trees lined the roads everywhere in Jinhae and Masan (heard it was the same in Changwon). Definitely worth a trip down if you're in time for the blooms.

I chose to go during the first week of April where I know it will be in full bloom and is just before the actual festival. In such a way I can enjoy the full bloom of the cherry blossom and yet avoid the crowd....More

The Jinhae Gunhangje Cherry Blossom Festival is truly a great experience to be in every spring. It will be a great idea to have a simple lunch at one of the pochamacha along the 1.5m Yeojwacheon Stream over looking the stream and beautiful cherry blossoms....More

Since there are a lot more choices in town around the subway line, which also enable evening activities, and the trip in Jinhai will not last for a full day, suggest not to stay a night in Jinhai.
