In the past years around the holidays, even petty criminals were released from prison to go home under parole. In the New year, it is rare to meet travelers, but if someone had to celebrate a holiday on the road, the innkeeper, traditionally did not take money from the traveler for meals and overnight.

What to do, say, in Seoul for the New year? Ideally a quick meet with some local citizen and to get invited (still homemade holiday when it is customary to pay visits). If not – go to the restaurant, so at least there’s plenty of naprobovatsya Korean new year treats. On the street you can buy roasted acorns “amp”, sticky caramel “ut”, beans “tan-UNSC” and other traditional sweets. Be sure to visit one of the many bars in Seoul-karaoke.
