South Korea offers travellers a dazzling range of experiences, culinary delights, beautiful landscapes and 5,000 years of culture and history. With a welcoming people, awe-inspiring architecture and idyllic countryside to explore, it is a destination with so much to discover. Visit the buzzing capital of Seoul and you’ll find yourself marvelling at meticulously reconstructed palaces, teeming night markets and dramatically modern architecture. Hike to the summits of craggy mountains enveloped within densely forested national parks, sail to remote islands or gaze up at the distant stars from serene villages surrounded by rice fields. Not to forget the flavoursome local cuisine and festival calendar that is full to bursting, South Korea is an oriental wonder.

When to Go

The ideal time to visit South Korea is autumn (Sept–Nov), when temperatures are mild, rainfall is generally low and festivals aplenty. Korea’s mountains erupt in a magnificent array of reds, yellows and oranges, and locals flock to national parks to picnic under their fiery canopies. A visit in Spring is also worthwhile, as flowers bloom and a frothy cloak of cherry blossom covers the landscapes in pinkish white from south to north. It presents perfect weather to explore the destination’s national parks and take part in a variety of events and markets.
