Things To Do in South Korea

AsiaSouth KoreaThings To Do in South Korea
  • Hiking Korea is a great hiking destination with many trekking possibilities due to the country’s mountainous terrain. Try Jirisan, Seoraksan, or the extinct volcano Hallasan on Jeju Island, which is South Korea’s highest mountain. They have spectacular vistas, 1-3 day trails, English signposts/maps, shelters (most of which are heated), and are simple to arrange. The leaves change gorgeous colors in the fall, therefore autumn and spring are the ideal times to visit.
  • Jjimjilbang Saunas are very popular among Koreans. If you can get over everyone being nude, this is a great way to unwind after a long day of touring – a good sauna, bath house, and somewhere to sleep for many (night) hours. There will be one in even tiny communities. This is particularly useful if you forgot to make a reservation for a hotel, everything is booked, or you need an inexpensive somewhere to stay overnight. Families are very busy on weekends.
  • Hot springs Koreans, like their Japanese and Taiwanese neighbors, are big fans of hot springs (, oncheon), and there are resorts all throughout the nation. Bathers are generally required to be naked by etiquette. Saunas are also available at several locations.
  • Snowboarding/Skiing In the winter, Gangwon province provides excellent skiing possibilities, which is especially attractive when it snows.
  • Eat Maybe you’ve had Korean BBQ in your own nation. The truth of Korean cuisine is much more varied and delicious. Every day, try something new and wonderful! (Vegetarian, meat, or seafood)
  • Winter surfing The greatest surf occurs in the winter due to local tidal conditions! You may do this in two places: Pohang and Busan.
  • Karaoke/Singing Rooms Noraebang is the same as Japanese Karaoke parlors, which are common and hard to miss in major cities.
  • Martial Arts Learn martial arts including Taekwondo, Hapkido, and Taekkyeon, which is a dance-like martial art. You may also attend to a competition or a performance – for example, traditional martial arts may be shown during cultural festivals.
  • Temple Stay Spend a few days in a Korean monastery meditating and learning about Buddhism.
  • In the Gyeonggi and Gangwon provinces, water amusement parks abound, including Caribbean Bay in Yongin, Ocean World in Hongcheon, which has a more Ancient Egyptian theme, and Ocean 700 in Pyeongchang. In the summer, both tourists and residents flock to the area.
