When the weather does begin to warm a little more in April, in Seoul, it’s a welcome relief as the sub-zero temperatures are gone and the sun comes out in the crystal clear blue skies and the people change their thick winter coats for shorts and a t-shirt.

The Tulips come to life in Spring, and no one puts on a better display in Seoul than the Everland Theme Park. Each spring the Tulip festival takes centre stage with a vast array of tulips on display and with fantastic colour and clean smell.
It’s not only Everland where the Tulips are fully paraded and perfectly landscaped, with the city decorated with thousands of tulips — making a gorgeous city that even better on the eye.
