FRIDAY – WEDNESDAY
Most people will be travelling this Chuseok, whether inside Korea or abroad. We’re still listing some possible recreational activities within Seoul, but thought we could also point you towards some of our favourite articles covering other parts of Korea. Take a look at this photo essay of Busan, a trip to Muuido and a quick stop on Chuncheon’s Nami Island.
If you’re sticking around Seoul you could also try some of the activities listed in our Sunday Funday series.
