I’m preparing a list of things that we will need for our summer vacation. South Koreans usually go on vacations at the end of July and when I say South Koreans, I mean almost everyone in this country take their summer vacation all at the same time!
Two years ago, we went to my husband’s hometown and there was a 60km long traffic in a 60km stretch highway. We had a lot of fun though as we visited Soraksan and Seokcho.
Last year, we spent our summer vacation with the whole family. All of us headed to Donghae for the beach and we definitely had fun building sandcastles, playing in the water and the kids also tried riding the power wheels that were for hire.
This year, my husband and I are taking his parents to the southwestern islands of Korea. We are going to be on a four-day vacation and we’ll leave on Saturday morning. We’re expecting traffic as the weather is going to be summer perfect. I just hope they have free WIFI where we’re heading. Read the KT article on the expected holiday traffic this year.
