Buddha birthday 22 May celebrations

Hi,

I will be in Seoul on 22 May.

What activities will be happening for Buddha’s birthday celebrations and what would be the best areas to go to experience things from a local perspective?

Any temple, honestly. Not like public in the square events.

Bongeunsa or Jogyesa in Seoul.

If you have much time, go to any far-locating huge temple with many good reviews.

Jeondeungsa, Baekdamsa, Haeinsa, Tongdosa, Guinsa, Songgwangsa, Seonamsa, Samgwangsa, ....

Still Jogyesa. You will probably be close anyway.
