3rd – 19th November – Seoul Lantern Festival

If you’re looking for your next perfect photo for Instagram, or just love seeing pretty lights at night, you HAVE to be in Seoul this month! Going across just over two weeks, you’ll be able to find thousands upon thousands of lanterns lining the 1.2km path along the Cheonggyecheon Stream. Each year, there is a different theme for the lantern style, and this year the theme is ‘Lights of Pyeongchang Olympic Winter Games in Seoul’. We can’t wait to see how this theme is represented in the Lantern Festival!
