For the cruises that leave Bosan at 2 pm, a half day tour can be perfect as the following:
The cherry blossoms in Busan are in full bloom in spring, and many tourists come to the city of Busan to enjoy the cherry blossoms. Because the weather in Busan is warmer than other areas, you can see the cherry blossoms earlier than other areas in Korea.
Haeundae has a well-known sea view, and in spring, cherry blossoms are in full bloom. Walking under the cherry tree, the gentle sunlight passing through the gaps of the leaves, wandering freely on the body, reflecting the unique silhouette of cherry blossoms, full of spring! The pale pink, snow-white clusters of flowers are full of branches, and there are so many flowers that it is almost mistaken for a pink snow to fall from the sky. Samnak Riverside Park is also known as one of the 100 most beautiful roads in Korea because of the 1,200 cherry trees planted on both sides of the trail, and the length of the cherry blossom road is also considerable.
In Namcheon-dong Cherry Blossom Street, the distance between the two sides of the community road is not too wide. These cherry trees, which seem to want to hug each other with their counterparts on the opposite side, continue to extend towards each other, forming a very charming flower sea tunnel.
Jeju Island is the southernmost location in South Korea, and it is also the place where the cherry blossoms first bloom, all at the end of March. The varieties of cherry blossoms planted here are native large cherry blossoms. It is said that the petals are large and the flower diameter is long, which looks more gorgeous. In fact, you can see the blooming sea of flowers in any corner of Jeju Island at will, and you can also match it with classic tourist attractions, such as hiking on Seongsan Sunrise Peak with beautiful sea views.
We highly recommend that you book our shore excursions now if you will be taking a cruise in 2024. 2023 has already seen large crowds, and 2024 will see even more. We expect many tourists will be unable to book their shore excursions in 2024, so please make your plan as soon as possible.
