Visiting a garden in winter might not sound like the best idea, but not if it’s the Garden of Morning Calm. Located in Gapyeong County, Gyeonggi Province, the garden has held the Lighting Festival오색별빛전 every winter since 2007, and the event has grown popular among couples, families, and photographers. The trees are beautifully decorated with eco-friendly LED lights, which are mercury free and safe and consume low energy. The garden's 20 themed sections are connected by scenic walkways, beautifully manicured grass, and flower beds.
The event venues comprise six themed gardens like “Bunsai,” “Heaven,” and “Moonlight.” This year’s festival will run through early March. The path surrounded by colorful lights is a great spectacle for couples and children. The lights are turned on from sunset to 9 p.m. A tripod will help visitors take great night pictures despite lack of light. Don’t forget to bring a thick jacket and gloves.
