25 Photos to Convince You to Travel to South Korea in Autumn

If visiting South Korea during autumn is not yet on your travel wishlist, these photos will convince you that it should be on top of the list.

Humans are susceptible to falling in love. Thankfully, it’s not just with people; we’re also prone to falling for places that look straight out of a fairytale.

South Korea is one of the most picturesque countries on this side of the galaxy, and it’s even more beautiful once the temperature drops, the leaves of the trees transition from green to red to brown, and the sunlight casts an overly warm tone on everything and everyone.

It’s the season of falling, and you’re welcome to fall head over heels in love with Korea.

Every fall, South Korea basks in golden autumn light
