My two favorite seasons in Korea are autumn and spring. I don’t care much for summer and winter but we need them to complete the four seasons. It’s just that it’s so inconvenient to travel in winter when it’s too cold and when there’s snow. ;p
I am so looking forward to this autumn since my sisters will be visiting us. Too bad though that my husband would be in Italy that time so he won’t have time to drive us. I am also excited since I would only be working twice a week starting next month. So I’ll have more time visiting places in Seoul and the nearby cities. I would love to visit Jirisan, but an overnight trip is impossible for me.
For those who are looking forward to this autumn’s colorful foliage (Hangeul: 가을 단풍 – ka-eul dan-pung), here are the expected dates when the trees in the major forests of Korea show their colorful side ;p Information is from Visit Korea website.
Plan your trip to Korea from the middle of October until the middle of November for Korea’s autumn foliage. Bukhansan, which is in Seoul, is an easy hike. ;p
