Busan in two weeks January 2015, coping with the cold.

Jump to last reply

We leave on Dec 31st for a week at Busan. Everyone I have talked to about it and from what I have been reading it is very cold at this time of year. My daughter is living there at the moment been there since mid-October, and the temperatures are averaging a low of -5, and highs of between 1 and 5 Celsius.

We live in New Zealand where it is summer, and in the winter the temps average about 8-10 degrees. There seems to be a wind chill in Busan which lowers the temperatures.

We have jackets that we used in New York when we were there in November, so will be taking those. We won't to do lots of sight-seeing but it could be too cold to do that. My DD has said it is freezing out there Mum!!

Any tips.
