When is the best time to visit South Korea?
The best time of year to visit South Korea is generally considered to be the spring months of April, May & June, and the autumn months of September, October & November. During these two seasons days are typically sunny and dry with comfortable average temperatures.
Unlike many other Asian destinations, South Korean weather is fairly straightforward and easy to understand.
There are only minimal regional variations throughout the country, and the year divides neatly into four distinct seasons.
There is a delightful spring (April to June), a muggy and wet summer (July to August), a refreshing autumn (September to November) and a freezing cold, snowy but dry winter (December to March).
The main regional temperature differences in South Korea are accounted for by the country’s altitudinous interior and its warmer, but windier, coastline.
Japan and China protect South Korea from most of the area’s typhoons, but one or two still manage to get through each year during the summer months.
