The best time of year to visit Seoul in South Korea

The large amount of people who live and work in Seoul at only 613 kilometers help to ensure that the average temperature in the city is a few degrees higher than in the countryside which surrounds the city. This is because the buildings and streets retain the heat, an effect that is especially noticeable during the summer evenings.

Seoul has relatively cool and sometimes quite mild winters. However not every winter is the same in Seoul. Some winters there will be no days below the freezing point and other years you can experience severe frost. That same unpredictability is reflected throughout almost the entire year.

From May to September you will see the most rain, with rainfall amounts rising in July and August to 300 and sometimes more than 400 millimeters per month.
