Seol-nal (Lunar new year) is one of the most important holidays in Korea. Koreans get 3 days off from work and travel to their hometowns to spend the time with their families. I read that this year around 20 mln Koreans have travelled to their homes which of course resulted in huge traffic jams. Except Chuseok, it is the only time when Seoul is actually empty. I have chosen to travel to Gwangju which is located in southern part of South Korea. It was a very relaxing holiday and I enjoyed it to the bits.
