Korea's Four Seasons

In spring, you see a rich range of pretty flowers bloom, including azaleas, forsythias, and the famous cherry blossoms. March is a little bit chilly, but warm weather continues through April and May.

It rains a lot in the summer specially in June and July, making korean summers very humid and some places experience floods. It is the hottest weather in late July and early August when the temperatures range between 30 and 35 degrees centigrade, and many people go on summer vacations to escape the heat. People usually go camping or stay in the valley. It's not unusual to see cars parking under the bridge to have a picnic near the river or ponds.

In Autumn or Fall, specially in October, Koreas mountains are filled with the beauty of trees. They turned in different colors called dampoong. Then, in November, their leaves fall. While it differs by region, in winter the temperature goes down about minus 5 to 10 degrees centigrade and occasionally, there is heavy snow.

The hottest month of the year are July and August and the coldest are January and February. During this time, elementary, middle and high schools all have summer and winter vacation for almost two months. During vacations, some of them spend their vacations abroad.
