In April, the country is covered in white cherry blossom petals, mountains are ablaze with yellow forsythias, and villages are blooming with sansuyu (dogwood). Here is a list of the best places across the nation to visit in the spring and enjoy the beautiful, colorful spring blossoms!
Every spring, Seokchon Lake, located in southeastern Seoul, holds a cherry blossom festival. The neighboring Lotte World Adventure & Magic Island also offers exciting amusement rides and other festivities.
In spring, Seoul Land transforms into a stunning landscape adorned with cherry blossoms, tulips, azaleas, and canola flowers with Cheonggyesan Mountain sitting serenely in the background. The amusement park area, especially the 4 kilometer Cherry Blossom Road connecting Seoul Grand Park Station with Cheonggyesan Mountain as well as the road leading to the entrance of Seoul Land, becomes an extraordinary site for spring flowers. At night, special lighting fixtures highlight the flowers, creating a spectacular sight.
