I can smell spring :-)

My son and I went out Monday afternoon to hunt for a camera at Namdaemun market. The weather was really good. The temperature was 14 degrees celsius and it wasn’t windy. No yellow sand either. It’s just the second week of March but it felt like May! It’s been cold and windy since mid-November last year so I’m really excited that warmer days are just around the corner. Now I can’t wait for the cherry blossoms to bloom. There are a couple of trees near our apartment gate. They only bloom for a week or two so they really are a treat to see. So if you’re planning to visit Korea soon, look for the best travel deals now and come here for spring. 🙂

Still hunting for a camera… new models are not yet available in Korea.

    Hi,

    I wanna experience the cherry blossoms festival but I’m having a major headache as to when I should depart from here. When do you think is the perfect time to go there? I made a flight reservation for the first week of April. Will this date be too late to see the flowers? I heard that it blooms from the north to south part of Korea. Please share some insight!!!!

    I’m planning to visit South Korea from 18 – 25 April, and stopping at Jeju. Will it be too late by then to catch the cherry blossom in Jeju? I noticed in another website that the timing was 6 Apr for Seoul….

      Hi! Yes, it would be late for you to catch the cherry blossom in Jeju. They usually last for just two weeks. Here in my place, the cherry blossom are now in bloom.

    I see. So if I leave on 18 Apr, it would be either just catching the tail end or missing it altogether. What a shame….
