Spend September in Seoul

Autumn in the South Korean capital is an explosion of colour as leaves turn to a dazzling array of reds, oranges and yellows, creating a beautiful backdrop to its picturesque temples and ancient streets.

A temperate mix between the sizzling summer highs and the frigid winters, September is an ideal time to visit the city. The monsoon rains have passed, and the drier weather is perfect for exploring. 

In celebration of the autumn harvest, the festival of Chuseok falls from 12th -14th September. Throughout the country, South Koreans sit down with their family to feast and honour their ancestors. While some businesses close during the festive period, there are often sales in the larger retailers, and the quieter city means it's even more comfortable to explore. Alternatively, escape to the hills and discover the region's beautiful hiking trails - September is one of the best times to climb.
