As if coming straight out of a children’s storybook, Pocheon’s Herb Island is a whimsical location found in Gyeonggi-do, South Korea. Indeed, it is a beautiful Eden in its own right but come nightfall, the garden automatically exudes romance when it transforms into an illuminated wonderland.
Light and Fairy Tale Story Festival
More specifically, the Light and Fairy Tale Story Festival takes place on this scenic island from the months of November to April of the following year. It is during this time that the theme of fairy tales is pretty much apparent and the attractions are plentiful — which in combination, lends a hand in attracting visitors aplenty.
From couples who are hopelessly in love to friends bonding over a scenic locale, this fantasy-inspired festival is THE place to be!
And if you’re visiting during the Christmas period, it’s also recommended to pay a visit to the popular Santa’s Village. Here, you’ll find a 300-metre long wish tunnel being lit in a pink hue which paves the perfect path to the village — offering an ideal location for a great photo-taking sesh for your Instagram needs.
When To Visit: November to April
