The jinju floating lights festival is for 2 weeks in the end of October in every year. If you pay 1000 krw under $10 for festival, you enjoy watching the decorated lights at jinju palace and nam liver. There are tons of the street food with good price!

KRW 2000 for the entrance fee is well worth paying for the historical attractions and the museum within this old fortress. Tip: The Busan to Jinju express bus runs almost every 15 minutes, from Busan... More

This fortress is settled along the Nam River, where a battle took place with the Japanese. There are many great photo ops, and the history is incredible. I would recommend visiting during the annual Lantern Festival in early October.
