Join us to explore South Korea through spectacular rose tinted glasses as the country blooms an iridescent shade of pink. The cherry trees bloom in abundance throughout the country, and like its neighbour Japan, creates a festival like atmosphere that you do not want to miss.  

In March of every year, for approximately two weeks, the streets across South Korea sparkle various shades of pink as cherry trees bloom in abundance. Marking the arrival of spring, the ‘beot-kkot’ season or the more popular Japanese term of ‘hanami’ (viewing the cherry blossoms) commences and involves festival like celebrations with families and friends coming together to view and celebrate under the trees. The Cherry Blossom is a symbol of renewal and hope, inspiring intentions and wishes for the future.  

Cherry Blossom season is now one of the most revered experiences around the world and the small window of opportunity to experience this magical moment means that spots fill up quickly. The best way to experience this natural phenomenon is on tour with us of course! Our 14-day Scenic South Korea program will ensure you don’t miss a thing!
