Why Koreans Spent Winter Vacation in The Philippines?

19 Jan

White Christmas would seem to be a dream come true for the people in the tropics. In contrary, people who live in the cold countries like Korea usually spend winter vacation abroad. But why do they really like to spend in the Philippines? There are three things that made them choose the country.

First and foremost Koreans go abroad in winter because the weather in Korea is quite depressing. The lowest on the record was last 1933 in Junggangiin which was negative 43.6 degrees Centigrade. Who can ever imagine that?

When winter comes in Korea it is also the same time where Philippines experience its best weather. Not to warm and not to cold. It is very much suitable for those people who can’t endure the cold temperature and don’t want an intense humidity.

Second, the Korean temperament is quite similar to Japanese. They don’t want to be stuck in one place without doing anything. Koreans are active people. They’re always on the go and love to explore the activities outside but this is hampered when it’s winter time.

The outdoor activities that most Koreans wish to do during winter is also meet when they happen to visit Philippines. In the country they can get to see beautiful spots and scenery. There are thousands of beautiful white sand beaches which provide fun activities like rafting, banana boat riding, having a spectacular view under water with scuba diving and many more. All these are the things they couldn’t enjoy in their country.

Third, Korean parents wanted their children to enhance their skills in English in an English speaking environment. And only in winter vacation that they can do that. The days, when students is free for two weeks or more.

Most Koreans visit Philippines in winter because of English. English is widely spoken in the Philippines. It is used as the business language and the medium of instruction in schools and universities. Over 90% of Filipinos can speak and understand English well in either spoken or written form. Thousands of affordable ESL Tutorials cater an English camp for winter that is usually grabbed by parents who wish their children to improve their skills.

Choosing the Philippines is a total package. Everything that they desire will be 90% achieved when they spend their vacation in the country.
