Method Three of Three:
Planning Your Trip
Plan your trip in the spring or fall for the best weather. Spring in South Korea is April to June and is often regarded as the best time to visit. The country experiences mostly sunny days during this time and flowers are in bloom. If you prefer slightly cooler weather, consider visiting in the fall months of September through November.
It’s best to avoid going to South Korea in the summer because it’s monsoon season when the country regularly experiences heavy rainfall.
If you are visiting in the fall or winter, make sure to bring a jacket to keep you warm in the chilly weather.
You can usually wear T-shirts and shorts in the spring and summer.
Get your travel documents in order if you’re visiting from another country. In order to visit the park, you’ll need to travel to South Korea if you don’t already live there. Obtain or renew your passport 2-3 months in advance. You should also check whether you need a travel visa.Certain countries have a visa waiver agreement with Korea. Once you have all your documents, go online to purchase plane tickets to South Korea.
Visit https://www.hikorea.go.kr/pt/en/info/popup/icis/VisaWaiver_pop.htm to see whether your countries residents need to get a travel visa to visit South Korea.
Incheon International, Gimpo International, and Jeju International are the largest airports in South Korea.
To save money, buy your plane tickets at least 90 days in advance.
Reserve lodging accommodations if necessary. If you don’t live in Korea and plan on staying for more than 1 day, you should reserve accommodations before you leave for your trip. Take a look online for hotels in Seoul or near Everland and book your room.
If you’d like to stay close to the park, the Ramada Yongin, Soom Forest, and Q Hotels are within a mile from Everland.
