According to the Lunar calendar Spring officially arrived last with with the advent of Ipchun.
However the thermometers have said otherwise with the recent cold snaps.
Temperatures are set to increase and stabilize in the next week and daytime highs will hover above freezing.
This is the perfect time to get out and start exploring and see some Gwangju after being stuck indoors.
I recently took a walk along Gwangju Stream from Hakdong towards NamGwangju Market and Sajik Park ( close to Chungjangro) which is teaming with wildlife and tranquil sounds of flowing water.
As the temperatures increase during this time levels of fine dust is also set to soar so be mindful to download a air quality application and check before heading outdoors.
