The Silver Grass - Seoul Eulalia Festival 서울억새축제

Autumn is the time when everything bursts with its last beauty, as if nature had been saving up all year for the grand finale... changing seasons, and when autumn colors are at their peak, thats the time when the silver grass, eulalia,susuki grass or whatever they may called at its bloom at their loveliest smile.

After (finally) make some free time at the weekend i went to the Haneul Park - 하늘공원 or Sky Park, which is originally site of landfill, after the recovery project in 2000 becoming  a grassland and home for seoul eulalia festival that held every year in the October, the park usually closed at the night in order to reduce the negative effect of visitors to the plants and animal, but during the festival however, its remains open until 10 pm.

I originally plan to go here as fast as possible after finishing my class, but somehow due to the some reasons, i cant reach the park before sunset... Luckily, we can enter the grassfield which had been turned to light stage and seen the beautiful nightview of the city. So if you plan to coming here again during the autumn be sure to check the time, because the park usually close at 6 pm.

If you enjoy seing the silver grass, but not going to stay in Seoul you can also go to the Suncheon Bay Reeds Festival or Mindungsan Mountain 민둥산  which is known as silver grass mountain because of the waves of Eulalia covering its sides.
You can go to Haneul Park 하늘공원 at the World Cup Stadium Station (Seoul Subway Line 6), Exit 1 and walk like 1 km and 271 staircase to the top or the sky park.
