Whats happening in February 2011

Check out all the great Valentine's Day gifts!
Sorry this is late, blame it on my boyfriend who took up all my time while he was visiting Korea for the past 2 weeks! Here is a comprehensive list of whats going on in February.  Be sure to check back for updates throughout the month! 

February 2 – 4: Happy Seollal (Lunar) New Year! This Year the Chinese New Year takes place on a Thursday which means Korea gets an extra long holiday. You must book tickets months in advance to travel anywhere during this holiday. If you forgot and are stuck at home check out "How Koreans Celebrate Seollal, Lunar New Year".

February 17-19 Jeju Fire Festival: This yearly event has been canceled. If anyone knows why, please leave a comment. Here is the website from The Korea Tourism Org. about the event and the cancellation: Jeju Fire Festival

February 10-13 La Boheme:  This opera will be performed by the Incheon Opera Group. The cheapest tickets are 30,000 to 100,000 and more information can be found at Korea 4 Expats. There's nothing like a good opera performance to relax your mind and soothe your soul!

February 14 Valentine's Day:  Be sure to check out all of the crazy Valentines Day gifts sold at Watsons and Olive Young, as well as your local Mini Stop! This is one of the most celebrated holidays in Korea!

I would try out this traditional tea ceremony. The price is reasonable at 50,000 or you can do the deluxe version for 70,000. I have heard good things about this location, and compared to other ceremonies this really is affordable. http://www.visitkorea.or.kr/ena/SI/SI_EN_3_6.jsp?cid=309542

I would love to see pictures if you end up going!

Also, if you don't want a traditional Korean tea ceremony, you can experience a Buddhist tea ceremony at the following temple stay. www.templestay.com Prices range between 30,000 and 50,000 won including 3 meals and translation fees. At the Korean temples the ceremony is unique and has specific etiquette and practices.

I wish I knew the name of the place I went to back in 2009, the woman was a tea ceremony major in college!
