Good news for everyone who is looking for the yellow canola flowers in Seoul area. You do not need to go to Busan or Jeju Island for canola flowers since you can see them in Seoul. It’s not as big as the field in other place, but it’s worthy to visit and take pictures, since its 30 mins away from downtown.
Canola flowers in Seoul usually bloom on April 10th until first week of May (depend on the weather, rain and wind). In 2017, in my prediction, the best time to visit is April 18th – April 23th.
The canola flowers grow bellow the Gwangmyeong Bridge (광명대교), just next to the Anyang stream nearby Guil Station. Gwangmyeong Bridge is seen in the picture below.
The location is quite hard to find as it is quite far from the nearest subway station, which is Guil Station (Line 1), about 1,3km away (20mins walking). Here’s the detail direction.
As you arrive at Guil Station, take exit 1 (the exit gate is shown below)
As soon as you go out, turn right and you will see the entrance of a bridge which will accros the stream.
At the end of the bridge, turn left (under the flyover road), go straight.
When you the find a pathway going down, go down to the jogging and bicycle track beside the Anyang stream (stream should be on your left side)
This is the jogging and bicycle track beside the stream. Keep walking straight.
First, you will see tulip fields, and the canola fields is just behind it.
Keep going straight until you find the yellow canola fields.
