Summer in Korea
The months of June, July, and August bring poppies, music festivals, and the longest days of the year to Korea. It’s the best month of summer by far – so get out there and explore in comfort while you can.
What to do in Summer
2022 is the first June where there’s a full roster of summer festivals and events. Head to the UNESCO listed Danoje Festival in Gangneung, a huge music festival in Seoul, or cheer your heart out at a KBO baseball game.
June is a great time to rent a hanbok, stroll next to the Cheonggyecheon, have a picnic by the Hangang, or hit the beach!
