Unlike many other Asian countries, South Korea is a country where the temperature difference between seasons is stable. Regional differences are at a minimum in this peninsula country, which basically experiences all four seasons.

While there is a very cold and dry winter between December and March, in July and August, the country is under the influence of the eastern monsoon climate and receives lots of rain.

Therefore, the spring season, which lasts from April to June, is seen as the ideal time to visit South Korea. During this season, the average daily temperature ranges from 15 to 18 Celius degrees. Spring, when all cities are adorned with pink cherry blossoms, means the time for South Korea to start various festivals.

Between September and November, the sweltering heat and summer rains leave their place to striking autumnal hues. The weather is generally mild in the fall when the festivals are in full throttle. Considering that the sea temperature does not increase, it can be said that spring is an important competitor of this season for some when it comes to the ideal time to visit South Korea. However, when defining the perfect season, let’s not skip winter tourism. A visit in September, October, and November can be an excellent opportunity to try skiing.
