Visiting Korea & Seoul in Summer

Updated on Jun 11, 2024 · By ENKOR

Summer in Korea is a vibrant and exciting time, filled with festivals, outdoor activities, and delicious seasonal foods. However, the hot and humid weather can also present some challenges. To help you make the most of your trip, here are some top tips for visiting Seoul in the summer.

Stay Hydrated

Seoul’s summer can be hot and humid, so it's essential to stay hydrated. Carry a water bottle with you at all times and take advantage of the many convenience stores around the city where you can buy drinks. You can also find free water dispensers in many public areas.

Dress Appropriately

Lightweight, breathable clothing is a must for dealing with the summer heat. Opt for loose-fitting clothes made of natural fabrics like cotton and linen. Don't forget to wear a hat and sunglasses to protect yourself from the sun, and apply sunscreen regularly. And certainly the most important, bring your umbrella everywhere every time with you !


Plan Your Day Around the Heat

Try to schedule outdoor activities for the early morning or late afternoon when temperatures are cooler. During the hottest part of the day, from noon to 3 PM, seek out indoor attractions like museums, shopping malls, or cafes.

Explore Indoor Attractions

Seoul offers plenty of indoor attractions that are perfect for escaping the heat. Visit the National Museum of Korea, the COEX Mall and Aquarium, or the Dongdaemun Design Plaza. These places offer a cool respite and are packed with interesting exhibits and activities.

Enjoy Summer Festivals

Summer in Seoul is festival season. Don’t miss the Boryeong Mud Festival, held annually at Daecheon Beach, where you can enjoy mud wrestling, mud sliding, and even mud massages. The Seoul Lantern Festival, the Busan Sea Festival and the Sinchon Water Gun Festival and Water Bomb festival are also great summer events.


Cool Off at Water Parks and Pools

Seoul has several water parks and pools where you can cool off. Caribbean Bay and Lotte World Water Park are popular choices with fun water rides and pools. For a more relaxed experience, visit one of the many public outdoor pools along the Han River.

Savor Seasonal Foods

Korean cuisine features many refreshing summer dishes. Try naengmyeon (cold buckwheat noodles), patbingsu (shaved ice dessert with sweet toppings), and samgyetang (ginseng chicken soup). These dishes are not only delicious but also help you stay cool.


Use Public Transportation

Seoul’s public transportation system is efficient and air-conditioned. Use the subway or buses to travel around the city comfortably. Avoid walking long distances during the hottest parts of the day to prevent heat exhaustion.

Take Evening Strolls

The evenings in Seoul are cooler and perfect for outdoor activities. Take a leisurely stroll along the Cheonggyecheon Stream, visit Dongdaemun Design Plaza's night market, or enjoy the lively atmosphere of Hongdae. The city comes alive at night with plenty of activities and sights to see.

Stay in Comfortable Accommodation

Choosing the right accommodation can make a big difference in your summer experience in Seoul. Look for places that offer air conditioning, comfortable beds, and convenient access to public transportation.
