Most Korean eateries close late so you never have to worry about being hungry in the middle of the night. Moreover, you can always order fried chicken for your kids and beer for your parents from street vendors that are opened to the middle of the night!

If your itinerary is too packed, your parents and kids might feel worn out but spending most of your time in the hotel would be a waste of your trip. Therefore, a comprehensive itinerary is needed if you want to travel as a family. The look of content on your parents’ face and joyous laughter from
your kids will prove to be worth the hassle; the most important takeaway is allowing your family to bond through this trip.
