I'm so glad that my dream trip has come true. I made sure that when I travel to Seoul, it should be a full bloom spring for me to see the gorgeous pink sakuras and there I was, delighted and in awe of its beauty.

In this post, you'll find out the best dates and places to experience spring in Seoul.

Let's start with the dates.

When: April 4-11, 2018

From my extensive (wow) research, the forecast said the cherry blossoms in Seoul will start to bloom between April 2-10. What I did here was to choose the safest travel dates (April 4-11) that will cover the whole spring season. My advice to you is to keep an eye to the season's forecast. Also, since I'm pretty sure you're almost always on social media, why not use it for the benefit of your travel experience, so look for Koreans online or join a travelers' group and ask them. This is not creepy, okay? I did this and look where it got me. Also, the Koreans I met told me that cherry blossoms don't stay long. Usually, it only takes about three (3) days for you to experience a full bloom spring.

Where: I've got 3 places to recommend

Seokchon Lake

According to a Korean organization, Seockhon Lake boasts approximately 1,000 mesmerizing cherry blossom trees lined up like a tunnel of flowers, creating a fascinating scene in spring. So imagine how much blooms will surround you. It's also located near Lotte World. The place is a bit far from the city but let me tell you, the long commute is so worth it. Exaggerated as I could be but the place is beyond beautiful. It's mesmerizing! It will not be my favorite spot for nothing.


Seoul Forest

This place is such a treasure, too! The cherry blossom trees are perfectly lined up like they're the real life umbrellas in every corner. However, the place is kind of crowded because it's like a popular hangout place for the youngsters. If I'm not mistaken, there are nearby schools in the area that's why it's mostly occupied by students.



Yeouido Hangang Park

Finally, the park that also caught my heart! Yeouido is such a great place to take photo shoots with cherry blossoms in the background. This is the best place to bask in the city's most beautiful blooms. Also, it's a peaceful and romantic place to spend time with your friends or loved ones. I'm not overreacting here but I really fell in love with the place, ambiance, atmosphere, everything about this park is worth exploring.

When are you planning to travel to Seoul? :)
