Spring in Korea

Spring in Korea usually begins at the last week of March and ends at the last week of June. It’s the time when the flowers start to bloom. The time when the withered trees grow new leaves.

Few months ago, I created a blog post about Autumn in Korea. Apparently, it helped a lot of people in choosing when to go and where to go in Korea during Autumn. This time, I’ll try to show some of my pictures last Spring as well as the places I’ve been to experience the cherry blossoms.

Last Week of March

Most of the trees are still withered but some trees are starting to have some leaves. Some people still wear thick jackets. The temperature ranges from 0-15°C.

1st week of April

Cherry Blossoms are now blooming. People wear long sleeves but some girls can now manage to wear short skirts. During April, it’s cold in the morning and at night but it’s sunny and hot in the afternoon. The temperature ranges from 1-20°C.

Yeouido Spring Flower Festival is celebrated during the first week of April.

3rd week of April

It’s a good time to take a walk along the Cheonggyecheon stream during the daytime because it’s really relaxing to see all those green trees, clear waters, and some animals. The temperature ranges from 8-23°C. You can also visit it at night to see some lanterns during the Lotus Lantern Festival.

This year the Lotus Lantern Festival will be held on April 28-30, 2017.

I explored the Bukchon Hanok Village and Namsangol Hanok Village. I just realized that I haven’t made a comparison about it yet. I shall make it soon. If you’re really interested in these kind of structures, I highly recommend going to Korean Folk Village.
