September – Gyeongju (경주)
The Cheomseongdae Observatory (첨성대) area is one of the main attractions of Gyeongju and it’s one of my favorite places to see in Korea. It is full of burial mounds and happens to be one of my favorite places to see cosmos flowers in spring.
October – Hongcheon (홍천)
Hongcheon is the only place can see the most beautiful Ginkgo forest in Korea. However, Hongcheon ginkgo forest is a hidden gem because it is not open to the public except in the first 3 weeks of October (approx. period) when the ginkgo trees turn into a beautiful yellow color.
