South Korea is a country full of surprises - it’s the ultimate experience where you are challenged and constantly discovering something unique.
South Korean culture is strongly influenced by China and Japan. South Koreans are reserved, well-mannered and considered reliable and loyal to their friends and family. You’ll also notice how hospitable and willing to help they are when you travel here.
Visiting South Korea is best in the seasons of autumn and spring. April - June (spring) is the most popular time for travellers, as floral arrangements explode to life and pink cherry blossoms fringe the national parks and streets, especially in Gyeongju.
September - November (autumn) is also a refreshing period, with pops of warm hues and pleasant temperatures. Festivals are also aplenty during this time.
