In this new Corvid-19 world, many traveler’s with itchy feet are having to come to terms with the fact that they might not get to freely travel any time soon. As some parts of the world seem to be managing their local outbreaks, many people have resorted to travelling locally while avoiding crowds and maintaining social distancing. Wonderful would like to share a list of the top 10 most private luxury pensions in Korea, for those looking for safe places to stay with their families this summer. We tried to focus our list on relatively unknown but accessible luxury pensions that can be traveled to via car/train from the mainland, so there will not be any island options on the list. However, we will be making multiple pension comparison lists so remember to subscribe to our blog to get updates. Also, Wonderful can help with your trip planning by researching on parks/venues that are open, making reservations for museums on your behalf, booking rooms at Pensions, buying tickets (train/bus/etc.) and much more.
