Korea has four
a wet monsoon/summer season in the middle of the year, and a cold winter
from November to March. The island of Jeju off the southern coast is the
warmest and wettest place in the country. The ideal time to visit Korea
is during the autumn months (September-November). During this time, the
warm, sunny weather, skies that are cobalt blue and spectacular foliage
that is perhaps the biggest draw. Winters are cold and dry and are a
good time to visit if you are interested in winter sports as there are
numerous ski resorts. Spring (April-May) is also beautiful with all the
cherry blossoms in bloom. However, it is very busy and one needs to book
in advance to ensure accommodation is available. The summer months are
muggy and hot, and rather crowded. It is also when the monsoon season
begins so many activities are subject to the fluctuations of heavy rain.
Korea's climate is regarded as a continental climate from a temperate
standpoint and a monsoonal climate from a precipitation standpoint. The
climate of Korea is characterized by four distinct seasons: spring,
summer, fall, and winter.
Spring lasts from late March to May and is warm. Various flowers,
including the picturesque cherry blossom, cover the nation's mountains
and fields during this time.
