Agoda, one of the world’s fastest growing digital travel platforms, today shared the top overseas destinations for Korean travelers during the Chuseok holiday (September 12 to 14) based on its booking data. Taipei, (Taiwan) famous for its traditional culture and gastronomy, scoops the top overseas destination, with Fukuoka, Tokyo, Osaka, (Japan) and Bangkok (Thailand) all making the top five destinations. Other top destinations include Da Nang, Shanghai, Okinawa Main Island, Bali, and Cebu.
This year sees Shanghai (China), Bali, (Indonesia) and Cebu (Philippines) enter the top ten list of popular overseas travel destinations for Chuseok. Shanghai is not only famous for its unique cultural attractions such as the Bund, Yu Garden, and New Heaven and Earth, but surprisingly, also as a place to learn about and experience Korean history, including the site of the Korean Provisional Government. Meanwhile, Bali, the “Island of the Gods,” is a great place to enjoy marine sports including surfing, or volcanic hiking, as well as enjoying the tranquility of the rice paddies fields around Ubud.
Cebu, which slips in at number 10, is an idyllic spot, blessed with white sand beaches and crystal clear waters, making it the ultimate haven to relax.
Kyoto, Sapporo, and Hong Kong slipped out of this year’s Chuseok top ten.
