The key to a successful spring picnic is a delicious and diverse spread of food. Head to one of Seoul’s bustling markets, such as Gwangjang Market or Namdaemun Market, to pick up fresh ingredients and local specialties. Include a mix of Korean delicacies like kimbap, fried chicken, and savory pancakes, along with fresh fruits, salads, and baked goods. You can also easily use Korean delivery apps to order Korean fried chicken, pizza, tteokbokki, jjajangmyeon, and more!

For a Korean-style chimaek (chicken and beer) experience, head to the nearby convenience store and grab your beer!

Before heading out, familiarize yourself with park regulations and guidelines to ensure a smooth and enjoyable picnic experience. Be mindful of designated picnic areas, clean up after yourselves, and dispose of trash properly to help maintain the cleanliness and beauty of Seoul’s outdoor spaces.

5. Check the Weather Forecast

Keep an eye on the weather forecast leading up to your picnic day and be prepared for any changes in conditions. Pack appropriate clothing layers, umbrellas, and extra blankets in case of cooler temperatures or unexpected rain showers. Planning indoor activities in advance is also a great way to prepare for a rainy day!
