April's weather in detail

Spring arrives in South Korea in April. Low rainfall, mild weather and the flowering of cherry blossoms combine to make this month one of the most popular times of year to visit South Korea.

It can still feel a little chilly in the mountainous National Parks of Seoraksan and Songnisan, and the temperature in the northern capital of Seoul may still dip just below freezing on occasion, but the southern areas of the country, such as Busan and Jeju Island, record mild daily temperatures that range from a minimum of 6°C and a maximum of 13°C.

If that's not enough to tempt you, the cherry blossoms begin to flower across South Korea during this month, which can arguably rival those of neighbouring Japan.

Our recommended journeys

Besides close geographical proximity South Korea and Japan share many similarities and make natural holiday partners. Both are countries rich in ancient history, where deep-rooted traditions are balanced by contemporary culture and technological sophistication. Natural wonders and scenic beauty can be found throughout the two, as can a distinctive cuisine and friendly people. This ten day itinerary offers a teasing taster of both destinations.
