If you are travelling to Korea this year plan your visit with one of the major cultural festivals happening around the country and you will find your travels more enjoyable and rewarding.
One of the best seasons to travel to Korea for cultural festivals is in spring, with many festivals taking place in April/May so it’s a great time to visit the country.
A total of forty-two festivals have been designated as the ‘2013 Culture Tourism Festivals of Korea’ by the Ministry of Culture, Sports and Tourism. A couple of the outstanding festivals named are the Jindo Miracle Sea Festival which happens once a year and is famous for the ‘Moses Miracle’ where the sea mysteriously parts and you can walk from the mainland to an island. It will take place from 25-28 April, 2013 and there are many associated cultural related events.
From 14-19 May this year the Boseong Green Tea Festival will take place. Boseong is considered the birthplace of the commercial tea industry in Korea and is the largest producer of tea in the country. The festival has many fun experience programs where visitors can join in picking tea leaves, experience traditional Korean tea ceremonies and some performances as well.
This is just some of the wonderful experiences you can enjoy at one of the many cultural festivals happening around the country this year.
