Final Fall Encounters at Seoraksan National Park

I've said it before and I'll say it again.  Korea in fall is a sight to be seen.  There are plenty of places to experience all the wonderful things about the season, but there is one special destination that allows visitors to experience autumn in all its glory: Seoraksan National Park.

Making the Most of Korean Festivals in 2012

 
 
The Eobang or Fishers' Festival on Gwangan Beach, Busan
 
 

Taking a Winter Dip at the Deokpo Penguin Swim Festival


On January 7th, I took part in the 8th Annual Geoje Penguin Swim Festival. This festival was just so much fun, and definitely one of my favourite experiences in Korea thus far!

Bokbunja & Black Raspberry Festival!

I took an Adventure Korea tour to see the Black Raspberry Festival in Geochang. Activities included picking berries & drinking the berry wine, touring the festival grounds (including live eel catching), a dance party, and shellfish collecting.

Basically, the 45 foreigners provided live  entertainment for the small town of Geochang for the entire weekend. We were followed everywhere by Koreans and their cameras. An amusing weekend, indeed.


After a 3-hour bus ride from Seoul, we landed in Geochang. We began the day by enjoying some traditional Korean games and sampling the local black raspberries, one of Geochang's best-known exports.

Destination: A tour of Boryeong (Chungcheongnam-do)


Question from a reader: DMZ tours

A reader named A. H. writes in:
I have a question about DMZ tours. I have been trying to book myself and a visitor to Korea for the weekend of March 5-7th. I have contacted the USO and have been informed they are no longer conducting tours due to contractual disputes, and do not know when they will be back up and running.

Would you have any information of a tour agency providing (cheap) tours to the DMZ the first weekend of March? I have only found very expensive tours.

Thanks!! I appreciate your help!

Destination: Jeju, part 1

After a very nice Christmas vacation, it's taking some time to get back into the swing of things. Let's rewind back to Christmas Day, where after signing up for an Adventure Korea trip this adventuring traveler and his fearless girlfriend met our guide at Gimpo Airport. Note: For the sake of those with slower internet connections or shorter attention spans, I've split up the three-day trip into three parts - one for each day of the trip.



After a smooth plane flight we headed towards a chartered bus from Jeju International Airport.
