Why is April the Best Time to Visit Korea?

South Korea is a fascinating country to visit at any time of year, and there’s no better time to do so than in the spring, particularly in April.

Read on to find out why you never really need an excuse to visit Korea in April.

1. Hello, Sunshine!

In Korea, April is the month of spring breeze and warm sunlight and the weather continues to get warmer throughout the month.

While the average April’s high temperatures in Seoul are around 12~18ºC (53.6~64.4ºF), the temperatures in the southern region of Korea, including Busan, Gyeongju and Jeju Island, are 2~3 degrees higher.

※There may be some sporadic cold snaps and big gaps in temperatures at night, so make sure you bring a couple of warm sweaters or a light-weight jacket or coat!

At this time of the year, you will start seeing restaurants and cafes reopen their beautiful terraces and locals going outdoors to enjoy family outing or spring picnic.

The weather in April also offers travelers and tourists the perfect opportunity to enjoy the outdoors dressed in Korean traditional outfit ‘hanbok‘ as well.

2. Blooms ‘n’ Blossoms

Weather is not the only reason why April is the best time to visit Korea.

It is when travelers and tourists can witness the spring’s splendor and admire the colorful blooming flowers and the vibrant colors on the streets everywhere.

Here are some of the best features of Spring not to be missed in Korea are: cherry blossoms, tulips and spring flower gardens.

1) Cherry Blossoms

Cherry blossom season reaches its peak in early April and they tend to bloom earlier in the southern parts of Korea. Most of them fall when there is a strong wind or rain, so be sure to catch them before they are gone!
