Busan cherry blossom usually earlier than Seoul. If you happen to go to Busan early April, make a day trip to Jinhae. Jinhae cherry blossom festival usually April 1 till 10.
yeah. will arrive in first week of april. hope can make it for busan and seoul cherry blossom. just that usually busan is end march / early april.

anyone with experience for Jinhae Gunhangje Cherry Blossom Festival?
need some advice...

1) read from a few blogs that mention getting bus tickets at busan can be a bit troublesome as it can get sold out for to and return. any tips for this ? buying online/ arrive early etc.

2) how much time (estimated) will be enough to cover the gyeonghwa station and romance bridge.

3) and any hotel to recommend in busan that is convenient to tour the city and also access to the bus terminal at sasang / gamjeon train station?

—- arrive early at the bus station, buy on the spot. I’ve been there and done this.
2) how much time (estimated) will be enough to cover the gyeonghwa station and romance bridge.
—- one day allocate to this trip is more than enough., include round trip from busan

3) and any hotel to recommend in busan that is convenient to tour the city and also access to the bus terminal at sasang / gamjeon train station?
— I stay at busan station last time and made my way to sasang station early morning. Busan station has lots of hotels. I stay atound busan station bc we need to take KTX back to Seoul.
Most people stay at busan station, haeundae or nampo. Haeundae kind of far from city center.

Could anyone help me with this?
The Korean met service comes up with a forecast every year.
For example for 2017 cherry blossom in Busan was forecasted to start on March 26.
Some sources online say that the best time to view is about 1 week after this date which will be peak bloom while others say from the first day of this forecast will be good.

So which is it on the assumption the forecast is accurate.

Thanks.

Hi what would the temperature be like in Korea during early April? Is it cold like Taiwan or Hong Kong winter time?

Also where is a good place to recommend stay in Jeju?

Last yr when I went, I bought the bus trip from klook and chose meeting Point at Prince Myeongdong.

The meeting time was v early and I just stayed just around Prince Myeongdong.

The bus ride was long but you can just sleep on the way there.
