Autumn in Seoul – Namsan Tower and a bit of Myeongdong

Growing up in a tropical country and working in a country that is mostly summer even in winter, we have limited seasons to experience i.e. dry season, wet season and drier season. LOL. So experiencing fall for the first time was like an oasis to our deserts and a warm food to our hunger. 😛

I’m particularly looking forward to visiting Mt. Namsan when we were in Seoul. Why? Because autumn, the year’s last, loveliest smile. 🙂 Mt. Namsan means nature, beautiful walking trails and trees, trees that have auburn, scarlet and copper leaves, warm colors that brings feast to the eyes and peace to the heart. Please be warned as what you will see in this post are trees, leaves, and mostly trees.

Autumn in Seoul – Changdeokgung Palace and Bukchon Hanok Village

We were in Seoul the last two weeks of November 2016. The plan is to go the first week so we can enjoy the best of autumn, things happened and the trip was moved two weeks after. We don’t have much expectations as we’ve read somewhere that the last weeks of November are when the season transitions from autumn to winter, meaning leaves have fallen and the weather is expected to be gloomy.

As the proverbs say, every cloud has a silver lining, indeed it has. 🙂

When we arrived, autumn is in full bloom. (Hallelujah!) Bursting in autumn colors, yellow, red, brown and orange leaves are everywhere! As my sister calls it, the last of autumn – it was nothing short of wonderful!!!

After a while of research, reading of various travel blogs about Seoul, hunting of affordable-but-livable-and-accessible guesthouses on booking.com, I’ve managed to complete our itinerary plan few months before our travel. It’s a lot of work but oh so worth it. Who wouldn’t want to wake up knowing you wouldn’t need to scurry searching the web for tourist sites, where and how to go? Men, I loved being prepared. We never got lost, not even once. 🙂
