Seoraksan National Park, South Korea
Informing you that Koreans are keen hikers would be a drastic understatement. Each weekend, the mountain sides are decorated by dozens in their colourful, pristinely kept, top-of-the-range hiking gear.
Perhaps this is the key to the South Korean aging myth (they don’t); slogging it out on mountains in the cold morning through the bitter years of middle age.
Autumn is a beautiful time of year in South Korea. The humidity of the summer dissipates into dry, clear sunshine, and the landscape becomes saturated with colours.
Seoraksan is a large national park to the east, near the coastal town of Sokcho. There are a number of different trails available for all abilities. There’s no better place to breathe fresh air and see the leaves change.
Muuido is a small island off the coast of Incheon. It’s especially popular during the summer season, as it is so easy to reach from Seoul.
The tides are strange here; during low tide, expect the water to retreat at least a mile back into the ocean. This allows for a beautiful walk during the sunset.
Beach huts are available for 40,000 won, and they sleep up to four people. Camping on the beach is 5,000 won.
