Greet early Summer with Goseong Lavender Festival
Every June, the areas around Eocheon-ri in Goseong-gun are covered with the purple lavender fields. During this season, many local and international visitors attend the annual Goseong Lavender Festival. This year, the festival will have a variety of programs, from exhibitions to performances.

Mr. Ha Deok Ho is the owner of the Hani Lavender Farm. He found Goseong the best location in Korea to cultivate lavender and started the business for 10 years – It was not easy to cultivate lavender and they faced many problems such as unpredictable weather, different type of soil and others throughout years but eventually managed to make it the best lavender theme park in Korea.
“Lavender field makes people happy.” said by Mr. Ha with smile.
