Planning on where to go during your holidays is nice and all, but one thing you can’t overlook is WHEN you visit certain countries as it will also affect your experience greatly.
Do you like crowd? Do you like more relaxed atmosphere? Do you like warm weather or do you like the cold? What about seasonal events in your designated country? You can’t forget to consider all these while planning your vacation in order to avoid turning your dream holiday into a nightmare.
In Asia, one of the more popular destinations is South Korea, home to increasingly popular K-pop and K-drama genres.
For South Korea, it has 4 seasons that vary greatly from each other, 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).
Spring starts at the end of March to beginning of May.
Spring is widely considered to be the best season to visit South Korea. Purple cherry blossoms or azaleas start to grow and bloom very beautifully bathing the city with delightful hues of pink.
Average daily temperatures are pleasant 15-18°C. In early spring, the weather is still cold and the sun that shines brightly only seem to illuminate but not warm the Earth.
The weather is less likely to be inclement and, as a result, many festivals and events can be found taking place such as Yeoido Cherry Blossom Festival and Jinhae Cherry Blossom Festival.
Summer begins on June and ends on August where it reaches its peak. Visiting Korea in summer is best for you who want to participate in festivals as Korea has a lot of those in summer, especially water based festivals such as the Sincheon Wakeup City Fiesta Festival.
Autumn in Korea starts in September and ends in November. Autumn in Korea is really pretty, with leaves falling from trees creating a really beautiful leaf rain. The leaves of maple and gingko trees have changed to yellow, red, or brown, making a rather romantic atmosphere.
Unfortunately, this view only lasts three weeks. If you want to see the leaves turn colorful, you should visit at the end of October or early November.4. Winter
