 S. Koreans’ revenge travel as COVID rules ease.

As the world slowly recovers from the COVID-19 pandemic, South Koreans are taking advantage of the easing of travel restrictions to embark on what has been dubbed “revenge travel.”

After months of being cooped up at home, South Koreans are eager to make up for lost time and explore the world once again. According to a recent survey, over 70% of South Koreans are planning to travel domestically or internationally within the next six months.

One of the main reasons for this surge in travel is the success of South Korea’s COVID-19 response. The country has been praised for its aggressive testing and contact tracing measures, which have helped to keep the number of cases relatively low compared to other countries.

As a result, South Koreans are feeling more confident about traveling and are eager to make up for lost time. Many are choosing to travel domestically, taking advantage of the country’s beautiful scenery and cultural attractions.

Others are venturing further afield, with popular destinations including Japan, Taiwan, and Thailand. These countries have also been praised for their COVID-19 response, making them attractive options for South Korean travelers.

Of course, traveling during a pandemic is not without its challenges. Many countries still have strict entry requirements, including mandatory quarantine periods and COVID-19 testing. Travelers also need to be prepared for sudden changes in travel restrictions, which can be frustrating and costly.

Despite these challenges, South Koreans are determined to make the most of their newfound freedom to travel. For many, revenge travel is a way to celebrate the end of a difficult year and to look forward to a brighter future.

As the world continues to recover from the pandemic, it’s likely that we’ll see more and more people embarking on revenge travel. For South Koreans, it’s a chance to explore the world and to make up for lost time. And who can blame them? After all, we all deserve a little bit of revenge after the year we’ve had.
