Between April and May, the cherry blossoms in Korea are a must-see during the spring season. One of the most popular destinations includes Yeouido Park located in Seoul, which attracts tourist from around the world! If you're in the south, Jinhae is another stunning destination which offers three different places to witness the cherry blossoms in full bloom.


Hiking

Korea is packed with mountains and hiking trails which is another great way to take advantage of the spring weather, and sightsee in the great outdoors. Not only are the hiking trails full of friendly locals, but it's the best way to de-stress and get away from the busy city life. Bukhansan National Park in Seoul is the best place to start since it's easily accessible by public transport, and provides beautiful views of Gyeonggi-do and surrounding areas.

If you're up for a leisurely walk, then the bamboo gardens of Damyang are an ideal way to relax and unwind. The pathways are lined with tall bamboo and lead to beautiful artificial waterfalls, a pavilion, and an eco-exhibition centre. Lights are also turned on in the evenings for a magical night walk!
