It’s that time of year again: the holidays! The songs, lights, food, warm coats, and woolly hats get us in the spirit for jolly celebrations. Other than food and gifts, some of the most amazing things to see in Korea are the gorgeous Christmas displays! Here’s a quick list of three cool attractions to visit in Korea this holiday season:
Lotte Department Store
If lights are your favourite thing about Christmas, take a trip to Lotte Department Store! During this festive season, there is an array of beautiful lights all strung out along the walkways and on display in shop windows, giving that classic, warm holiday feeling. Along with the lights, there are also multiple displays of lovely decorated trees placed around the store to complete the proper Christmas feeling. You can shop for gifts while admiring the dazzling lights, making it a perfectly merry outing!
Everland Christmas Fantasy
At this time of year, Everland holds its annual Christmas event, scattering a fantastic display of thousands of fairy lights around the park from December until early January. Along with this, there's an amazing parade with floats that are also covered in lights, illuminating the whole theme park. A day here in this festive season is perfect for people of all ages!

A plethora of sparkling lights flood the streets of Gwangbok-ro with a large tree standing tall at the centre, overlooking everything around and below. However, it’s not just a display of lights! The festival also has street performances and novelty attractions, such as a tree of wishes and love coins to collect, making their little festival really unique.
If you’re in the area Christmas, why not visit a couple of these places and enjoy Christmas, Korea-style?
