Seoul in March 2014

Hi everyone. I will be visiting Seoul for my very first time on 6th March - 14th March 2014. From what I've read, it still in winter weather and approximately around 0c - 10c. What should I wear during those temperature? Do I need to bring along accessories like gloves, earmuffs too?

Would like to make few friends too :)

You will need to. March is technically the tail end of winter but temp hardly rise above 5 deg at night, infact freezing morning is a norm in early March. Afternoon temp tends to hover around 15-16deg or lower.

Bring gloves, muffler and thick jacket esp since you come from tropical country

Thank you for the info. Thick jacket means something like down feather or wool jacket is acceptable?

I'm afraid I disagree with Rkk27.

I would advise you to bring clothes in layers, not a hugely warm jacket. In some places, at some times it will be warm. with a warm jacket you may be too hot.

For example long sleeve tshirt with sweater? Something like that? How about accessories like earmuff?

I have updated the "When is the best time to go in terms of weather?" article with advice about what specifically to wear each month.
