Despite the freaky weather here (sunny for 5 mins, cloudy for 2 mins, rainy for 7 mins then snowy for 1 min then the process starts again), spring has really come. As for me, the best part of Korean spring is cherry blossoms. Last year I went to Yeouido (too many people) and Namsan (gorgeous), so this year I am frantically looking for new cherry blossom hot spots. I came across the announcement that from 12th April, Seokchon Lake Cherry Blossom Festival 2013 will begin–sounds fun. That’s why today my lowcarb buddy and I braved the 9 degree Celcius cold to make a trek to Seokchon lake. Our few hours there were enjoyably spent. Although most of the time it was raining/heavily cloudy, we managed to take some pictures of gorgeous blossoms under the sun. As the cherry blossoms have yet to be in their full bloom, we will go to Seokchon lake again this Monday as well.
How to get to Seokchon lake: Jamsil station exit 2 and just walk straight ahead.
