Winter in Korea
Not gonna lie – winter in Korea can be downright freezing! You’ll need to bundle up to enjoy the months of December, January, and February in Korea, but there’s plenty to keep you occupied.
What to do in Winter
Locals flock to the brilliant lighting festivals that can be found across the country. And while Koreans don’t celebrate Christmas like we do in the West, there’s plenty of trees, festivities and feasts to take part in. Head to a ski resort for winter sports and sledding, then relax your weary bones in a steamy jjimjilbang for the ultimate winter treat.
