Seollal, the Korean Lunar New Year that falls on January 1 on lunar calendar, is one of the biggest holidays. This year, Seollal Day falls on February 10 on the Gregorian calendar, and is observed for three days: the day before, the day of, and the day after.

During the Seollal holidays, most people visit families and friends in their hometown. Businesses, then, operate on different schedules, and even close for the holidays.

In order to avoid any inconveniences of holiday traveling, the Korea Tourism Organization is providing an extensive list of Seollal holiday schedules of major tourist attractions in and around Korea’s capital city, Seoul. For holiday schedules of places not listed below, please contact the 24-hour travel hotline, 1330 Korea Travel Hotline.


Many tourist attractions are open during the holiday weekend but other places will be closed. Here's a partial list (at the link). For some attractions, like Seoul Tower, this is the best time to see them as crowds are not too bad.
