What to do in Korea in Winter
In winter, Korea is full of sparkling Christmas trees, brilliant lighting festivals, and excellent activities. If you’ve always dreamt of seeing snow, visit one of Korea’s resorts for skiing, sledding, or snowboarding, try your hand at ice fishing, or hike up a snow-covered mountain. Sure – it’s bitterly cold, but that doesn’t mean you should hibernate at home. Gear up, and get out there!
