October's weather in detail

The high levels of humidity and oppressive, muggy air of summer are now a thing of the past, as are the torrential rains. In their place is a dry climate that offers blue skies, sunny days and comfortable temperatures ranging from 15°C in the north and at altitude, to 26°C in the southern regions. 

October weather is ideal for exploring South Korea’s great outdoors and the picturesque temples such as Beopjusa, in Songnisan NP, can be seen against a backdrop of russet reds and vibrant oranges. In the more mountainous National Parks it can feel a little chilly once the sun has set, so make sure you have packed extra layers for the evening.

Our recommended journeys

Besides close geographical proximity South Korea and Japan share many similarities and make natural holiday partners. Both are countries rich in ancient history, where deep-rooted traditions are balanced by contemporary culture and technological sophistication. Natural wonders and scenic beauty can be found throughout the two, as can a distinctive cuisine and friendly people. This ten day itinerary offers a teasing taster of both destinations.
