Winters are often harsh and full of peril when people venture outdoors. However, there are places on Earth wherein winter season can actually be fun and worth experiencing. One of these places is South Korea. Here are 5 reasons why everyone must visit South Korea during the winter season.

Winter Festivals in Korea

December in South Korea gives everyone a chance to stay at home and cuddle to hide from the freezing temperature. However, December also gives people, local or foreign nationals, a chance to enjoy the many festivals South Korea is hosting during the winter season.

One of the more popular winter events in South Korea is the New Year's Sunrise Festival. The Sunrise Festival is celebrated in selected locations throughout South Korea to celebrate the first sunrise of the New Year. People can catch the New Year's Sunrise Festival in Seongsan Ilchulbong Peak, Seogwipo-si, Jeju-do; Ganjeolgot Cape Park, Daesong-ri, Ulju-gun, Ulsan; Maryangpogu Port, Maryang-ri, Seo-myeon, Seocheon-gun, Chungcheongnam-do; Homigot Sunrise Plaza, Nam-gu, Pohang-si, Gyeongsangbuk-do; Sandglass Park at Jeongdongjin Beach, Gangdong-myeon, Gangneung-si, Gangwon-do; Gyeongpo Beach, Gangneung-si, Gangwon-do; and Impo Village (Hyangiram Hermitage), Dolsan-eup, Yeosu-si, Jeollanam-do.

Amusement Theme Parks! Need We Say More?

Winter season is the best time to visit South Korea's theme parks, such as Lotte World, Everland, or Seoul Land. These theme parks offer a great Christmas Festival. Travelers will need to shell out 18,000 to 33,000 Korean Won ($15 to $28) for a ride-all-you-can experience in these theme parks.

Outdoor Ice Skating

Korea offers special ice skating rinks in select location all over South Korea during the winter season. Local and foreign visitors can enjoy ice skating in a place like Seoul Plaza Ice Rink for 1000 Korean Won (less than $1). Also, open during the winter season are the Sangam World Cup Rink at World Cup Stadium Station and Olympic Park Ice Rink at Olympic Park Station.

Skiing & Snowboarding

Another popular activity in South Korea during the winter season is skiing and snowboarding. Phoenix Park Resort, Yongpyong Resort, and Bear Town are skiing and snowboarding resorts which are easily accessible via shuttle buses from Seoul.

Visit K-Live And Experience A K-Pop Hologram Concert!

South Korea is famous for their K-Pop artists. K-Live offers its patrons a chance to enjoy and participate in mini-hologram concerts. K-Live is located on the 9th and 10th floors of the Lotte Fitln. This is particularly a good place to visit since most people are often tired and cold-weary being in the cold all day. K-Live allows visitors to have fun and give people time to gather themselves for another voyeur outdoors during the winter season.

Aside from the 5 reasons stated above, people must visit South Korea during the winter season to fully enjoy what the Asian nation can offer. Would you like to visit South Korea during the winter season? Tell us why!
