May is the last month to enjoy no humidity before summer sets in! Here is a comprehensive list of whats going on this month around Korea. Be sure to check back for updates throughout the month!

May 20-22 Seoraksan Hike: This hike is in one of the most majestic National Parks in Korea. With the Seoul Hiking Group you can hike and camp on the beach for only 50,000 won if you book soon. Learn more here.
May 26-29 Ulsan Whale Festival: Take a trip down to the coastal town of Ulsan to see the whales migrate. They will also reenact traditional whale fishing, and visitors are encouraged to share their opinions on whale fishing at the event. Check out more at the Korea Tourism Org.
July 16-24 Boryeong Mud Festival: Yes this event is not until July, but it is a good idea to start looking at train and bus tickets or trip tours to this event now. This is without a doubt the most popular event in Korea all year among foreigners and Koreans alike. There are several groups taking tours such as Adventure Korea and The Seoul Hiking Group.
