Paju Light Festival

This weekend it was time to brave the cold and go and see the Paju Light Festival.

Arriving just before dusk there was little to see that was impressive but as soon as the sun went down out came the lights!

Millions of little lights lit the landscape and many couples enjoyed the atmosphere of walking around and sitting in to have coffee or bread.

The festival runs until April 1st and tickets cost 3,000 won for children and 5,000 won for adults.

You can check out this website for more: www.provence.co.kr

However bring some gloves because my fingers have never hurt so much in my life! Not to mention my feet as well!

Well here are some pictures and a youtube slide show for you to see just how many lights there were!

    1. Hello... wow since they changed the layout I have not checked the comments. Sorry for the late reply. It seems to be held every year with a slightly different start date. 2012 it is said to start November 19 and end January 31 2013. I hope this helps you ^^
