Seoul is probably the most underrated city in Asia but not anymore. More and more people are realizing what an amazing holiday destination it can be, especially in April when the cherry blossoms bloom. The exact time varies every year between March end to April start, so this visit must be planned carefully.
Because its cherry blossom season and it’s much more affordable to see these beautiful flowers bloom here than in Japan. And there isn’t just one but many places where you can see these beautiful light pink flowers blossoming throughout the city. Yeouido Park with its 1500 trees along the banks of the river is the top pick to see cherry blossoms.
March end-April start also offers a chance to Ski just about an hour’s subway ride out of Seoul! And it’s the perfect resort for beginners along with Ski equipment and skiwear rental also available. There are other Ski towns, big and small further away from Seoul and we can help you pick the right one based on your ski expertise and what you wish to accomplish.
Besides these two fascinating experiences Seoul in itself is a fantastic city. Seoul offers fascinating sightseeing but a must do in the city is to go shopping for cosmetics! The Korean cosmetic industry is the most popular and dynamic in the world and we arrange special cosmetic tours with an aesthetician to help you buy the right products for your skin type.
Another thing we love are the many quirky cafes in Seoul. From ones that look like a 2d cartoon drawing, those that are girlie pink, some with farm animals in them and our favorite a café where there are adult ball pits and children are not allowed.
Seoul also offers the most amazing streetfood including some Michelin star street vendors. Korean food is tasty and a must try, we even arrange street food tours specially customized for all dietary requirements. If you are a fan of K-pop and K-dramas you will love a visit to this vibrant city where performances abound in their many malls, cafes and public area.
April in Seoul is cold and the average temperature can be as high as 18°C to as low as 7°C. Rainfall and snow fall are minimal and generally its calm sunny days with flowers blossoming everywhere.
Seoul is actually the last place where they blossom so plan your trip such that you end in Seoul. Sakura or cherry blossoms only bloom for about 2 weeks and then fall off the trees and that too the dates change every year, so if you must catch the beautiful sight plan a longer trip than just a 4nts in Seoul. This increases your chances of seeing cherry blossoms.
March end-April is spring in South Korea and many spring related specials like festivals, foods like Strawberry buffets etc can be enjoyed. This is the time when sea food lovers will get to try certain octopus or crabs. And most importantly this is the time for Korean Fashion week so fashionistas will love catching a show or two!
