Now that Korea has relaxed many of its COVID-related restrictions, many travelers have itchy feet to get out and explore! Whether you are a tourist visiting Korea or a local resident looking to have a local vacation, check out this list of travel lodging ideas in Korea. 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. Travel safely with Wonderful's help. Feel free to send a message for more information.
