South Korea has several major airports to accommodate international travelers. Some of these include: Incheon International Airport, Gimpo International Airport, Gimhae International Airport, Jeju International Airport, Muan International Airport and Yangyang International Airport. Incheon International and Gimhae are the most traveled, as they service South Korea's two largest cities, Seoul and Busan respectively. In addition, there are three smaller airports and a number of civil airfields.
A number of commuter-type airlines can accommodate your travel between cities. Korean Air is by far the most established, but Air Busan, Asiana Airlines, Eastar Jet, Hansung Airlines, Jeju Air, Jin Air and Yeongnam Air have competitive fares and schedules.
Korea has four distinct seasons and weather at your destination will almost always play a part in determining air fare and hotel rates. Winter is from December to March, and is usually dry, but terribly cold. Skiers and ice skaters are willing to brave the temperatures that sometimes dip below zero with Siberian winds. The spring, from April to June, and fall, September to November, are the peak seasons for travel to Korea. Skies are blue, the cherry trees are in bloom and flowering plants and shrubs are prolific at this time. The summer, on the other hand, is when you will find your best travel deals, as long as you are staying in the cities. From late June to late August you run the risk of being smack dab in the middle of the monsoon season, during which the country receives some 60% of its annual rainfall. The temperatures are hot, the air is sticky. The locals know better than to stay, so they flock to the beaches, mountains and islands where all prices double; but that leaves the cities much less congested and makes getting around to see the sites much easier.
Seriously consider a trip to South Korea. An often understated vacation, you will be amazed at the beauty, the amazing cuisine, and the friendly people. You will fall in love with South Korea.

Korea is home to one of the most ancient cultures in Asia. While modern times have seen the country divided by war, and strife with the North is ongoing, South Korea has benefited greatly from its openness and economic ties to the West. You will find, when visiting, that everyone seems to be in a hurry. It's a fact of life here! South Korea is a country on fast forward 24/7. Seoul, its capital, is a modern city with a 'joie de vivre' attitude that can be both infectious and unsettling. Riddled with entertainment districts, teashops, saunas, and mini-cinemas, these attractions are along any number of narrow alley-ways, and sometimes stacked 10-stories high. You can stay in a modern luxury hotel, or in a more traditional room where you sleep on a padded quilt on a heated under-floor called an ondol, in a room furnished in the yangban, or aristocratic, style. Choose from multitudes of healthy Korean dishes and discover the pleasures of new tastes. Tour the De-militarized zone (DMZ) while here, a harsh reminder of the division of the country, or board a ferry to one of the islands of the west sea where you can walk on unblemished beaches and be treated to some of the best seafood in the world. Travel to the city of Gyeongju, known as the 'museum without walls', the home to more tombs, pagodas, Buddhist statuary, palace ruins, pleasure gardens and castles than any other city in South Korea. Visit Busan to buy souvenirs in this port city and enjoy the volcanic landscapes of the holiday island of Jejudo. South Korea holds a treasure-trove of experiences, just waiting for you.
