    Hi,

    Me and my group of friends will be visiting Seoul from 25 Dec to 1 Jan. However I understand that Hwacheon Sancheoneo (Mount Trout) Ice Festival (얼음나라 화천 산천어축제) (Ice fishing festival) is only commencing on 9 Jan next year.

    Is there any festival / ice fishing spots before this in December?

    Regards
    Lynn

    Hi, Lynn,
    I am sorry for you not to participate our 2016 Hwacheon Ice Festival.
    But you can enjoy the Sancheoneo Lantern Street and Ice sculptures part from Dec. 19, 2015.
    I hope you have a good and fantastic time in Korea.
    Thank you, Lynn.
