Fall Foliage In Seoul: Last Weekend of Colors?
The peak season for colorful autumn foliage is upon us and if you haven’t had time to get out and about and enjoy this beautiful season that lasts such a short short time in Korea, this may be your last chance! Rain is projected for the weekend and that means all of the those red, yellow, orange and purple leaves that make this season oh so poetically inspiring may be off their limbs and on the road to be swept away by Monday. If you work in the afternoon, get up extra early the last couple days of the week. If you work in the morning, push yourself to take a walk when you finish work in the afternoon or evening. While Nanji Stream Park is located just down the street from my house and so that’s where I head when time is short but a nature break is necessary, there are numerous parks around the city and plenty of mountains to climb too to get that much needed break to bask in the colors of autumn all over Seoul and the rest of the country too.
If you don’t have time for nature and you’d rather move on to other things, the Seoul Lantern Festival will start this weekend and run until November 23 so there’s always the lights to look forward to, too!
