Embrace the cold to beat the cold! Once again, it's that time of year again. It is the season for ice-fishing. Despite the temperatures plummeting during the winter months, Korea comes to life with exceptionally cool winter festivals and activities that sprout across the country. Let's go for fishing on the frozen Sinsun reservoir in Ganghwado Island to make the most of the season.
There's a quiet hidden gem in the frenetic city of Seoul that brings back memories. Children can experience first-hand how their parents grew up and hear the stories from those days. It's Donuimun Museum Village. Donuimun was one of the Four Main Gates of Seoul and is the only gate among the four that doesn't exist today after it was demolished during Japan's colonial rule. The Donuimun Museum village lets visitors feel 100 years of Korea's history, experience traditional culture, and bring backs the nostalgic memories of the 1960s-80s. Why not join that special trip to the past?
There's nothing like glistening light on a clear winter's night. Its luminous beauty truly connects us with the infinite power of dreaming and imagination.

Every evening in winter, the arboretum glows with lights in various themes throughout the entire garden, bring it back to life even when the flowers have withered. Let's visit the Starlight Garden Festival held at the Garden of Morning Calm.
