Spring in South Korea

The months of March, April, and May bring warmer temperatures, spring flowers, cherry blossoms, and some of the best festivals of the year in Korea. This is one of the best times to visit Korea, explore the streets of Seoul, and get off the beaten path in Jeollanam-do.

The entire country turns into a pink paradise for a brief 2 week window, so your timing will have to be perfect. Don’t worry if you miss them though – May is one of the absolute best months of the year, with excellent events like the epic Lotus Lantern Parade, and more spring flowers than you can imagine.
