South Korea prepares a list of 100 ‘Untact’ Attractions

February 23, 2021 Visit North Asia No Comments

When travel resumes, we’ll all be looking to travelling differently, for some that will be avoiding the crowds, being out in wide open spaces and exploring the natural environment and for most, hygiene and safety will remain the priority.  With that in mind, Korea Tourism Organization has put together a list of 100 Untact Attractions in South Korea to help visitors plan a trip that ticks all the boxes.

The concept of ‘untact’ is a decrease in person-to-person interaction.  The idea is to be able to travel safely in less crowded attractions as well as having a healing experience in nature.  South Korea has a large number of national parks and each one varies dramatically by season – the autumnal leaves or the cherry blossoms are well worth a visit.  Discover quiet walking paths, healing forests or cycling trails in beautiful parts of the country.  There are many smaller lesser-known islands to explore as well.

The selection criterion for the 100 Untact Attractions included – must be lesser known, have themed attractions for solo travellers and families alike, be outdoors and can only accept a limited number of visitors in order to practice social distancing.

Here is a summarised list of the top ten 100 Untact Attractions in South Korea:

  1. Achasan Mountain, Seoul
  2. Gureopdo Island, Incheon
  3. Jatyanggi Purunsup Resort, Gyeonggi-do
  4. Pyeonghwa Nuri Park, Gyeonggi-do
  5. Uiamho Lake Skywalk, Gangwon-do
  6. Gyejoksan Mountain Red Clay Trail, Daejeon
  7. Daecheongho Obaengni (500-ri) Road, Daejeon
  8. Gyeongcheondae Cliff, Gyeongsangbuk-do
  9. Gosalli Forest Trail, Jeju Island
  10. Geomun Oreum Volcanic Cone, Jeju Island
