Winter in Korea is far from boring. The scenery turns into a winter wonderland and activities abound.
Here are three activities (and places) I’m fond of:
1) Ice Skating
There are plenty of ice skating rinks and makeshift ones all across the country. If you live in or near Seoul, ice skating is best and cheapest at Seoul Plaza. If you get too cold and overwhelmed by the crowd, walk down to Gwanghwamun Plaza and check out King Sejong and Admiral Yi Museums.
Like ice skating rinks, you can sled in many places. My favorite in Seoul is at Ttukseom Hangang Park. There are plenty of activities for both kids and adults. Also, J-Bug Museum is close by which offers beautiful artwork, unique gift items, hot beverages, and great sunset views.
3) ATV on Ice
Riding an ATV on ice is just awesome! I highly recommend trying it at the Pyeongchang Trout Festival. There you can do ice skating, sledding, ice fishing, biking on ice, and many other fun activities.
Whatever you end up trying, don’t forget to:
