Filipinos can also fly to Gangwon visa-free

Jeju International Airport won’t be alone in welcoming tourists back to South Korea. Yangyang Airport in Gangwon Province will also reinstate the waiver for Filipino group tourists. Its enactment was done ahead of international events taking place in the province, making it an opportune time to enjoy local festivals.

If you want to stay in these provinces for a while, you may do so. This program allows international tourists to enjoy the sights and sounds of South Korea for up to 30 days. That’s probably enough to adapt to local life in the provinces.
