Our contributor, vlogger Tonya Bost, talks about the top Facebook groups for travel within Korea.

You’ve just started a new job in South Korea, and lucky you–a holiday is coming up and you are ready to use each and every day wisely by traveling to a new part of Korea. Unfortunately, you’re not comfortable with the idea of getting lost in a new country. You’re new to the area, not really comfortable traveling alone, and you’re still learning the basics of the Korean language. So what can you do? Well, you could just venture out and hope you find your way around…or, you can go on an exciting trip with little to no planning on your part!


This video introduces three amazing Facebook groups that organize exciting trips throughout Korea all year-round. If you join these groups, you will have access to all the upcoming trips, festivals, concerts and so much more! The best part is that you don’t have to know any Korean to go on these trips. The organizers will plan, book and reserve EVERYTHING!


Don’t waste another holiday or long weekend sitting in your apartment or in the local coffee shop down the street. Join these Facebook groups and get out there and explore this beautiful country! South Korea is small but trust me, there is so much to see and do. These groups plan trips from Jeju island to the DMZ and everywhere in between. You are bound to find a trip you’ll enjoy and going on these trips is one of the best ways to meet and make new friends!
