The number of South Koreans traveling abroad is expected to rise sharply during the upcoming Chuseok season. In fact, the results of one survey suggested that one out of every three people in Korea plan to travel during the Chuseok holiday this year.

This is in part due to the fact that Chuseok will be the longest public holiday of 2017. In fact, as the government is considering making made Oct. 2 a temporary holiday (the final decision will be made on Sept. 26), people will potentially be able to have a full 10-day vacation from Sept. 30 to Oct. 9.

The days that will be off are National Foundation Day on Oct. 3, then Chuseok (Korean Thanksgiving) from Oct. 4 to Oct. 6 and finally Hangul Day, a day to commemorate the creation of the Korean alphabet, on Oct. 9.

Here is some information about vacation promotions for those wanting to travel during the Chuseok holidays.
