VIDEO| Fall season canoeing in Chuncheon, South Korea

Though canoeing might not be the first on a fall foliage list, a visit to Chuncheon might change your mind. This relaxing outing is a way to get fresh air, some exercise and a great view of the season’s foliage while paddling on the water.

Chuncheon is a well-known lakeside city in the western part of Gangwon Province. If you’re a Korean food connoisseur, Chuncheon is also the home of dakgalbi, a spicy stir-fried chicken dish. Chuncheon the city, however, is a favorite for couples looking for a romantic getaway or families wanting to escape the busy city life. Chuncheon can be translated as a "stream where spring comes" but it turns into a more beautiful place in the autumn.
