Winter in Seoul 2014
This winter has been very mild and there hasn't been much snow at all. Yesterday we finally got a good snowfall. Now the cars are slipping and sliding around the mountainous city because no one bothers to get winter tires.
When does WInter usually end in Korea? And are there special activities or foods that come during winter there?ReplyDelete
Hi, winter ends around the end of February. By the end of March the cherry trees are blossoming and it can start to get warm quickly. I've seen gardens started around the end of February depending on how cold it is. This winter has been very warm. Two years ago it was very cold for about three weeks with temperatures dropping to -20C. In general though, there is not much snow in Seoul and the winter is very mild. Despite this fact, all winter sports can be enjoyed in and around Seoul.:)ReplyDelete
Hi! I just discovered your blog and enjoyed reading every post! :) I was just wondering what is the current weather? Do you have an idea of what the weather may be like by the end of March & beginning of April? I am from California, my sisters and I are actually coming to South Korea for about 10 days in the second week of April. Just thought it would be nice to have an idea of what to pack. Have a nice day. ^^ReplyDelete
Hi Diana. Usually the end of March and beginning of April in Seoul are warm (for me as a Canadian anyway). The end of March means that the cherry trees will begin blooming. Last year it was quite cool though and we were still wearing warm clothing. 6 years ago my parents came for my wedding which was April 5 and it was boiling - we just wore light spring clothing and I got a sunburn. I hope you have a great time here in Korea. April is a really nice to come to Korea but the best time is May because the weather is perfect - not too warm, not too cold - and all the flowers are in full bloom with the most amazing flower being the roses that grow on vines all around Seoul. ^^ Fall is also awesome. Avoid the summers at all costs. lolReplyDelete
