What is the best time to visit South Korea?

This is regarded as the best time to visit South Korea as the country gets painted pink by the blooming cherry blossom all over. Also, the weather remains quite pleasant with many interesting festivals lining up during these months. The weather not only makes it popular among tourists to visit but also boosts the locals to head for the hills, visiting country's many national parks. The temperature ranges between 5 degrees during the starting days to as high as 27 degrees towards the end of the season.

Summer (July - August)

South Korean summer can be totally unbearable and difficult to sustain for tourists. The weather becomes a way too hot and most of the days are full of the sunshine and high temperature. The temperature band is between 21 - 31 degrees. Not only the hot and humid climate will make you struggle, but this is the time of the year South Korea receives the maximum rainfall which is around 376 - 267 mm. 

Autumn (September - November)

The next best time of the year to visit South Korea is Fall or Autumn. During this time of the year, the rains have passed, and the country changes colour from the pink into shades of orange and red as the autumn leaves start to bloom. The temperature remains mild with low rainfall, with abundant natural beauty to enjoy for tourists. Also, 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. T-shirt weather can continue long into October, though you're likely to need some extra layers by then.

Winter (December - March)

Korean winters are long and chilly, with impressions of the Siberian weather as you move north. While being frosty is never the best thing on the planet, there is a sure appeal about wrapping up warm and strolling through fresh, white snow. Temperature ranges between -9 degrees to 8 degrees. Transport still runs predictably in South Korea and many purposes of intrigue are probably going to be far less congested than normal so on the off chance that you need to maintain a strategic distance from the group, winter isn't such an awful time to visit. This is likewise the ideal time to go to South Korea if skiing, snowboarding or whatever other snow-related action is on the plan. As the temperature falls so is the rates of the hotels and tickets as well, therefore, visiting South Korea in winters will be light on your pockets as well.
