We were lucky enough to see half of the cherry blossoms in bloom. If we were there a week later, 2nd week of April they would have been in full bloom. It was very grounded though but can't complain since it was such a nice and sunny day. We saw a lot of locals walking and just enjoying the blossoms. There are the few coffee shops and restaurants overlooking the lake. After the walk, we went into the Lotte World mall and walk around. Many expensive shops if that's your thing. Also a food court with lots of choices, western and Korean. Also a supermarket where we bought some fruits. Word of warning, Seoul at least the tourist areas do not have a wide selection of fruits and they are expensive.

One of the highly-recommended cherry blossom viewing spots in Seoul, and it is not difficult to see why! The entire circumference of the lake (or lakes? Since there are two sections) are just lined with cherry blossom trees, that when in blooms, are simply a magnificent sight to behold! The closest station to the lake via subway would be Jamsil Station (serviced by Lines 2 and 8), and the closest exits would be Exits 2, 2-1, or 3. I visited the area on 4 APR, and the cherry blossoms have already started to bloom. It looks to be nearing or already in full bloom? I can’t really tell. The area was quite windy too, so petals have already begun dusting the lake, so head over quick in order to catch this ephemeral beauty! Be warned that this place is very popular amongst locals and tourists, so it will be very crowded. The area is flat and very easy to walk, so it is also suitable for individuals with mobility issues. Plenty of benches surrounding the lake too, but they tend to be snapped up pretty quickly.

This was lovely. So pretty on a late afternoon, early evening in June. Take a walk, so nice. Circuit is easy to follow. Very relaxing. Clean. There are a few eateries and places you can buy drinks around the lake. I loved the music.

This is an artificial lake in Seoul. Watching calm water, it's good to stroll around.
- Famous for its cherry blossom blooming in early April.
- Warmer than other areas in winter.
- There are ducks and geese. People love to watch them.
- Good to visit together with Lotte World or Lotte Tower.

The lake is very popular in spring with its cherry blossoms. In autumn it is a lot quieter. Walking around the lake at night is very relaxing. Getting to the lake is quite easy by subway. Just get off at Jamsil Station and take Exit 2 (of the subway). Turn left a bit and cross the road. That takes you to Exit 1 of the Express Bus Terminal; there is a small walkway down to the left side of the lake. If you cross the road to the opposite side, it is Exit 2 of the Express Bus Terminal; a small walkway on the side takes you to the right side of the lake (with the Lotte fun park). To the first timer, it can be confusing after getting out of Exit 2 (of the subway) to see another Exit 2 after you cross to the opposite road corner.

This park is a must to visit in Spring! It is accessible by train, we alighted the station near the Lotte World Mall and had our lunch first. Flowers blooming everywhere and cover the whole Lake. We also can see the Lotte World Theme Park from the park. We spent walking around 1 hour to cover the whole lake - there are 2 sides of the lake.

The cherry blossom trees covered the whole Seokchon Lake, go there early to avoid the crowd if you want to take pictures. Seokcho Lake is situated next to Lotto Shopping Mall.
Remember to bring extra warm jacket because the lake is windy and cold during spring.

Went there during lunch hour, very crowded. But the view of the lake with cherry blossom is fantastic and Romantic. You can also view the Lotte tower next to it. Don’t miss this if you go to that area.
