Busan Christmas Tree Cultural Festival is where Gwangbok-ro is embellished with different sizes and shapes of Christmas tree lights. People visit Nampo-dong to enjoy the magnificent festival that warms up the cold winter every night with beautiful songs and spectacular performances.
At the entrance to Gwangbok-ro, tall, cone-shaped Christmas trees decorate with LED lights stand to welcome visitors. Red flower–shaped illuminations are lit up on each top of the blue, red, and silver LED-lit trees. Over time, the bands of red LED lights or the flower-shaped lights in the cone trees turn on alternately. People gathering in front of the cones look like they were warming themselves before a fireplace.
Road trees lined on both sides of Gwangbok-ro are also decorated with lights, which look like pretty flowers blooming on branches. The dazzling deer lighting seems to stare at the lights as if they were fascinated with the beauty. Everything around you is gorgeous that you can’t stop taking photographs. The golden tree and deer lighting against a background of the green main Christmas tree lighting seem to create a fantasy forest. Moreover, the streets teem with the feast of Christmas lights all over.

All of these will take your breath away. Anyone in the street will be immersed in the phenomenal scenery, where lights are glittering in contrast with the dark night sky.
The warm yellow lights that cover the night sky will make you stop in your tracks. You have just met the main tree of Busan Christmas Tree Cultural Festival.
