The World's Most Beautiful Flower & Tree Tunnels To Embrace Spring

(Earthporm)

Flower and tree tunnels are probably one of the best gifts we can ever receive from Mother Nature. At times, these eye candies are so gorgeous, it seems almost impossible for a photo to capture all of its beauty in one shot. Here, KKday has sniffed out some of the world's most alluring flower and tree tunnels that are practically heaven on earth.

1. The Wisteria Flower Tunnel

Located in Fukuoka Japan, the famous Kawachi Fuji Garden is actually a private garden — permitting visitors only a short stay in autumn and spring. Filled with a myriad of pink, lavender and ivory wisterias, the Wisteria Flower Tunnel is, indeed, quite a sight to take in. Cascading wisterias are planted over a couple of tunnels, domes and trellises that visitors can stroll under. The results of the hanging flowers in glorious full bloom, usually from late April to mid May, are astounding.

2. Gyeonghwa Station and Yeojwacheon Stream


Both located in Jinhae, South Korea, Gyeonghwa Station and Yeojwacheon Stream are world-renowned for its arresting tunnels. Sitting just west of Busan, the town celebrates the arrival of cherry blossoms each spring with Jinhae Gunhangje Festival. The festival hosts a range of entertaining activities and events that draw millions of visitors each year.

Featuring two tunnels, of which one is over Yeojwacheon stream, and the other at Gyeonghwa Railway, these places make one of the best spots for an awesome #OOTD shot. Walk over the bridge at Yeojwacheon stream and peer down to the petals floating gracefully along the water. Alternatively, enjoy a Hollywood-esque stroll down the 800-metre railway track at Gyeonghwa Railway, which is flanked with gorgeous cherry blossoms, and is not a sight to be missed.

3. Arashiyama Bamboo Grove

Kyoto may be famous for it's remarkable shrines, but it'd be a mistake to leave the city without first heading to Arashiyama Bamboo Grove. Situated at west Kyoto, Arashiyama Bamboo Grove is a boundless forest filled with towering stalks of bamboo. Step into this amazing bamboo grove and you'd find yourself in a new universe of otherworldly beauty.

3. Tunnel of Love

This dreamy, foliage tunnel is said to grant the wishes of couples whose love is true. Belonging to the forests of Ukraine, the Tunnel of Love is actually used by a private train service transporting wood from the forest to a nearby factory. That very train has sculpted the tunnel to be what it is today, an incredible example of how nature can adapt to a man-made infrastructure so beautifully.

4. The Dark Hedges

An avenue of intertwined beech trees planted in the 18th century, The Dark Hedges is probably one of the most photographed place in Northern Ireland. Sitting on Bregagh Road, The Dark Hedges flits between brilliantly beautiful to bewitchingly eerie throughout the day, attracting photographers from far and wide, regardless of weather or season. Legend has that the trees are haunted by the 'Grey Lady' who wanders the avenue at dusk. Whoever that is, she sure is one lucky woman to be "living" in a place of such awe-inspiring beauty.

5. Path Up To Halnaker Windmill

The small, quiet village of Halnaker homes an iconic 16th-century windmill which serves as a landmark for the dozy English countryside. On a pathway leading towards Halnaker Windmill is a tree tunnel that appears as if it was taken straight out of a children's fantasy tale. Care for a little Red Riding Hood re-enactment, anyone?

To the east of the Gulf of Thailand lies Pattaya, a charming resort city that is dazzling with some of the world's best nightlife and shopping. Pattaya was only a modest fishing village back in the 1960s, but the small town has since developed into one of the world's best cities that never sleeps! While Pattaya may be famed for its exuberant nightlife, the city is way more than just a one trick pony. Here's what the resort city has to offer for an awesome weekend getaway.

1. Hit the Beaches

Pattaya’s old-fashioned Four Regions Floating Market never fails to draw tourists to its intriguing river-based shops and eateries. This unique market is segregated into four sections – each representing and selling items from the four cardinal points of Thailand. These unique markets give visitors an insight into Pattaya's everyday lifestyle, culture and cuisine.

Wander the marketplace — hop on a boat, banter with vendors, grab a bite or catch a show — after-all, how often do you get to revel in such an experience?

3. Swing From Tree To Tree On Flight of the Gibbon

Located halfway between Pattaya and Bangkok, Flight of the Gibbon is an adrenaline-fuelled rainforest adventure experience made for the bold. The activity is located on the edge of Chompoo Wildlife Sanctuary, within Khao Kheow Open Safari Park. Imagine gliding on 3 kilometres worth of thrilling zip-lines, sky bridges and abseils in a forest.

Entry is inclusive of lunch, and served right after you're done with your "Flight". To complete your rainforest experience, how about hopping on a tram around Khao Kheow Open Safari Park? Not only will you get to observe wildlife up-close, a percentage of profits from the course goes to funding for environment conversation projects all over Thailand.

4. Discover Wat Phra Yai

Sitting atop Pratumnak Hill lies Wat Phra Yai, a temple home to the towering statue of Big Buddha. Standing at 18-metres high, the Buddha statue overlooks some of Pattaya's most magnificent views. No wonder the grand golden statue wears such a big smile.

5. Enjoy the Pattaya Tiffany Cabaret Show

A visit to Pattaya wouldn’t be complete without catching one of city's best transvestite shows. The Tiffany Cabaret is widely regarded as the best show in town and the origins first came from one man’s performance on New Year’s Eve in 1974. He must have been been pretty impressive as the show’s meteoric rise mirrored that of Pattaya.

6. Explore the Sanctuary of Truth 

Sanctuary of Truth, Pattaya

The spiky, imposing Sanctuary of Truth is made completely out of wood, and covered in hand-hewn carvings of Hindu and Buddhist deities. In fact, the four constructed wings are all dedicated to various Thai, Chinese, Indian and Khmer religious iconography.

This magnificent 105-meter tall structure overlooks the sea on the north Pattaya beachfront, and is, indeed, both a remarkable work of art and fascinating religious monument.
