Thank you for joining Good Times Rok & Waegook Travel special weekend for Independence Day on the 2nd largest island in the ROK! Geoje Island has some stunning views and so many fun things to do. Get ready for some good fun in the sun and all the great activities that Geoje offers.
Under KCDC and Korean Government guidelines, everyone that goes on this trip must have a temperature check and wear a mask. If you have a temperature of 37.4c or higher, you will NOT be permitted to go on the trip. Everyone MUST WEAR a mask when we are out in the public areas such as convenience stores, coffee shops, etc. Masks need to be worn in public places.
Our accommodation is in a beautiful Hotel with a nice pool for our guests. The hotel is only a 3 - 5 minute walk down to the beach and all the convenience stores, coffee shops and restaurants are very close to us. All activities will be optional since some people would rather just chill on the beach or hang by the pool. It is all up to you what you want to do!

Itinerary may change due to weather conditions.
is a pretty big tour with 2 full buses already arriving on Friday. Many people
who booked this tour from Saturday, chose the option to meet us on Geoje, so
there are not many people coming down with the Waegook Travel bus on Saturday.
We are therefore using a smaller 16-seater bus / limousine van for 14 people
and the driver. The bus will start in Seoul and stop only in Suwon and Daegu.
This means you will all arrive early on Saturday. We ask that you bring a small
bag with only the essentials because it is only for 1 night and there is not a
lot of luggage space. Bus-Limo Van Info is under “Departures” below.
There will be food for sale at the hotel restaurant, so you can buy lunch there or you can get seafood etc at the local restaurants by the beach. CASH ONLY at the Hotel!
