Spring activities in Korea

It’s almost spring in Korea! If you are heading to Korea this spring, check out the activities during the season of Spring!

King Crab

Early spring is the best time to eat king crabs. The King crabs are mostly caught in the east coast. Yeongdeok Crab Village in Gyeongsangbuk-do is especially famous for snow crab and king crab. Beside crab, you may also have the opportunity to enjoy one of the most beautiful sea roads in Korea!




Korean strawberries are well-known in Asia. In Korea, strawberry season takes place between mid-March and April. Places like Nonsan in Chungcheongnam-do, Damyang in Jeollanam-do and Geoje in Gyeongsangnam-do are especially famous production areas in Korea due to their milder climate.
