Beautiful Autumn sights in Seoul

Although the K-popped! Trio are back from Seoul, we are still dreaming of our vacation. The color change in leaves during fall in Korea is simply breathtaking.

Experiencing the beautiful colours of autumn / fall in Korea is one of their travel selling points. Before leaving for my holiday, one of my friends asked me if i will be traveling to the outskirts of Seoul to see the autumn leaves. Well, you don't need to go to the outskirts to "experience autumn". It's just right there in the city!

We discovered beautiful autumn sights especially at Insadong, Yoido, Cheonggyecheon stream and Namsan park.


Here we share some autumn scenes with you...

wonderful ways to
spend a leisurely afternoon.

You gals are so cute! I'm encouraged that you're interested in Korean pop culture! Not to mention that you're providing me here in the U.S. with updated Korean entertainment updates--terima kasih. Keep it up girls! - an 'unni' in the U.S.

oh, that's nice. i only just arrived here (incheon city) last oct.18 and i'm still enjoying the best of autumn as almost all the tree leaves are falling off already... my husband and i waited 4 months for us to be together again and we spent the last 4 weeks traveling to countrysides to also enjoy autumn, it's his favorite season... i'm also encouraging my family and friends to better come here next autumn... for me, it's also the best time to come see korea...

Susie Shin said...

siyi said...

Hey your pictures are really awesome!!! ^^
Just wondering what camera do you use? LOL~

Anyway keep up the good work, I really enjoy reading your posts on your trip to Seoul! :)

Orchid said...

Hi Ailee,

You need at least RM6,000 for the trip. We went when the Korean Won exchange rate dropped so that was good. It's still low now.

Roughly:
RM2000 - air ticket
RM2000 - accommodation (you can share with another person)
RM2000 transport/food/shopping

About that i guess. You can select cheaper accommodation like guest houses too.

But if you go on a tour, you can get all that for less than RM3000. Hotel, food & transport all included. But you will have to follow the tour schedule and won't be able to wonder around on your own. Unless you find a "free and easy" tour package. You can wait for one of the travel fairs and check out what they have to offer.

@siyi ~ all photos taken by Rooster & Orchid. We use Canon (Rooster) & Nikon (Orchid) DSLRs. =)

Thanks...glad you all like the photos!

Ailee said...

wow...okay..thanks Orchid unnie..
hmm...Does Korean Won exchange rate dropped on certain seasons?

cyndy said...

Wow great vacation.. You girls made me want to go Korea again.. It's really so beautiful..Day dreaming again..haha

Joe said...

These posts make me feel like a foreign visitor to Korea.. I wanna visit Korea too.. lol

Orchid said...

Hi Joe...you're back! hahaha...missed hearing from you. Too bad you were not with us when we were there. =)

Rooster said...

@ Ailee: You'll have to check the exchange rates from time to time. Right now the Korean economy is not doing well, which is good for travelers like us. ;p
