Let's Go on a Visit

Trip Along the Palgongsan


With the advent of Omicron, expectations that COVID-19 could end at the end of last year have disappeared. In addition, with the implementation of stronger distancing than in the early days of the outbreak of COVID-19, the social atmosphere of the New Year is also tight. Overseas travel is unthinkable, but even in Korea, you cannot go around freely. This is because it is a time when one needs one's own attention for the safety of everyone even if it is frustrating. But if you still want to leave, let's turn to untact destination. This is because new untact travel destinations are emerging one after another as the atmosphere of preferring safe travel has strengthened again due to the prolonged COVID-19.
