Travel Destinations with Spring Flowers in Korea
01. Plum blossoms at the beginning of Spring at Seoul’s Changdeokgung Palace
Plum blossoms are the first flowers to overcome the colder weather and start blooming to mark the beginning of spring. They usually begin to bloom at the end of February, fully blooming around mid-March to April. Out of all the possible locations in Korea, we daresay that Changdeokgung Palace offers the most “Korean” flower viewing experience.
Admission is 3,000 won for adults (between 25-64 years of age), but admission is free for visitors wearing a hanbok. This includes for foreigners! Why don’t you enjoy a palace outing dressed to match the colorful pink and white plum blossoms?

Travel Destinations with Spring Flowers in Korea 02. A feast of tulips and rape flowers at Jeju Island’s Boreumwat
Another place to visit in March-April is Borom Wat on Jeju Island, where you can revel in the tulips and rape flowers! “Borom wat” means “windy field” in the Jeju dialect meaning. It’s a farm meets cafe where you can see animals like goats, sheep, and cows in addition to of course the fields of flowers.
General admission is 5,000 won (includes adults and middle and high school students), 3,000 won for senior citizens (65+ years old) and children (elementary school students or younger). If you plan to visit with children, we recommend riding one of the highlights of Borom Wat, the can train! If you are visiting Jeju Island this spring, you can squeeze in Borom Wat, Bijarim, and Geomun Oreum as these popular travel destinations are all close together!

The Four Seasons Garden in Everland holds a tulip festival every March-April and a rose festival every May.
