LUNAR NEW YEAR:
GEOJE ISLAND 2017!

Wahyeon Beach January 27 - 29.

FUN Long Weekend on Wahyeon Beach:
3 Days / 2 Nights with many Inclusive Tours and Meals.
Early Bird Prices start from Only KRW 169 000 – KRW 199 000 (Minus additional discounts).

Wahyeon Beach January 27 - 29 (Long Weekend).

Another awesome Long Weekend by Waegook Travel (License Grade 1 - 612-13-28058). Geoje Island is much warmer than cities further north. Get away from the cold and enjoy an amazing time on the lovely beaches and enjoy the magnificent coast lines, nature and surrounding islands. On a nice day, the weather is like early spring or late fall and people can be outside with a sweater or light jacket. Average temperatures for late January are around 10 degrees Celsius. Accuweather Info at http://tinyurl.com/gnovrqk . Bring warm clothes though because the temperatures can suddenly drop if the sea wind picks up. This tour is excellent value for money with nice accommodation, excellent food, included tours etc and will cost much more if you came to Geoje by yourself. It’s also an excellent opportunity to meet many new people.

Bonus: Lucky Draw with the grand prize a free future weekend at Waegook Travel’s Beach House. The winner can invite up to 10 people to join him or her.

CUSTOM TRIP: This trip has been meticulously designed, so you can just chill out or join as many fun activities as you want at your own pace. The government declared the Monday as a public holiday, so you can rest before going back to work on Tuesday. This is a great time for Ex Pats and Koreans to enjoy the island at a fraction of the normal cost.
