Jinju Lantern Festival

Jinju lantern festival, or Jinju Namgang Yudeng Festival (진주 남강유등축제) is a festival that is held in the month of October in Gyeongsangnam-do, Jinju-si. Last year, I made a trip to Busan, and was lucky to see the opening of the festival on the 1st of October.


We started off the trip in the late afternoon as the trip took ~2hrs from Busan to Jinju. The leaves on the trees were just starting to turn yellow, and unfortunately I couldn’t stay long enough to see the peak of the fall colours which usually happens around late October.
