Visit one of this year’s most popular destinations for a fraction of the standard cost, thanks to a rare deal on flights to South Korea.

Over the weekend, Thrifty Traveler reported that tickets to South Korea were selling for as little as $445 round-trip.

The best prices are available for purchase between April and May, and again from September through December.

Flights from Los Angeles are the cheapest, though itineraries originating in the New York City area are also steeply discounted, with tickets starting at $525 round-trip.

Plan your trip for early April, and you can attend one of the nation’s spring flower festivals, such as the Yeouido Spring Flower Festival or the Seokchon Lake Cherry Blossom Festival in Seoul.

The blooms are expected to appear as early as March 23 and continue until mid April, according to Skyscanner.

To book your trip to South Korea, use Google Flights’ low-fare calendar to locate the most inexpensive travel dates, marked in green, from your preferred airport. Then, use a search engine like Momondo or Skyscanner to find the most affordable place to reserve your flights.
