During your stay you will hear countless times about Korea having four distinct seasons. When you tell your Korean friend that your home nation also has 4 seasons they may find it hard very to fathom. Koreans believe this is unique to the country but do your best to sound surprised when you learn about this amazing fact!

Spring is from late March to May and is warm with occasional light downpours. During this season you can witness the cherry blossom in your local city or head to the main festival in Jinhae. You should be aware that during spring there is an influx of yellow dust (hwang-sa) blown in from the west due to deforestation in central China and Mongolia. This lasts in total around 8 days and can cause clothing and cars to become dirty. If you suffer from breathing difficulties it is recommended that you stay indoors when the hwang-sa arrives.

Summer is from June to early September and is the Monsoon season. The temperature is hot and humid with some heavy rainfalls. August is the hottest month and if you are like me it's best to stay indoors under an air-conditioner, especially if you live in the center of the country. If you are located around the coast the temperature is a little milder so most Korean head to the beaches during summer vacation. Haeundae beach in Busan is a hot spot if you enjoy the crowds, if not head to one of the country's many beautiful island beaches.

Autumn is from late September to November. This is the best season to visit Korea as the weather is usually dry and cool with sunny, clear blue skies. Make the most of perfect t-shirt weather by taking a trip to the mountains to explore the colourful the Autumn leaves and breath in the crisp fresh air.

Winter is from December to mid-March. It can be extremely cold due to the influx of Serbian wind with temperatures dropping as well below zero at night and around zero during the day during the day in northern areas of the country. The temperature is a little milder in the south with temperatures hovering just above zero. Winter is very dry so be aware if you suffer from dry skin. If you aren't a fan of the cold weather look on the bright side! There is heavy snow fall in the north and east of the country making for great skiing conditions.
