When is the best time to book a flight to Korea?

To ensure you get the cheapest price possible for a flight to Korea, you should look to book at least 58 days in advance of your intended travel date. The price of your flight may increase if you delay and leave booking until a week or so before departure.

Which day is cheapest to fly to Korea?

At the moment, Tuesday is the most economical day to take a flight to Korea. Saturday is likely to be the most costly.

What time of day is cheapest to fly to Korea?

Those who are travelling from New Zealand to South Korea will find that the shortest of the flights is 11h and 55m. The longest of the flights from Auckland will have several stopovers and it is 31h and 20m long. Those who are going to be travelling out of Christchurch will find that the shortest flight is 14h 55m long, while the longest flight is 38h 45m long. Many factors will cause the flight times to increase or decrease. This includes the time for takeoffs and landings, as well as the number of stopovers and the length of those stopovers.

Which cities offer direct flights to Korea?

You can also find Korea flight deals from Auckland that just have a single stop. While there are not any nonstop flights for you if you are flying out of Christchurch, you will find that there are many one-stop flights. Some of the airlines with stopovers include China Southern Airlines, Singapore Airlines, Air China Limited, Air New Zealand and Korea Airlines. Air New Zealand, for example, has a stopover in Auckland where the travellers will then board a Korean Air Lines flight for the rest of the journey.

What is the best way to travel around Korea?

Those who need to travel to various areas of the country quickly may want to consider the domestic flights offered through Fly Asian and through Korean Air. You might also want to consider renting a vehicle to get around South Korea. The roads tend to be quite good, but some of the largest cities will have traffic congestion. Hiring taxies within the city and even renting bikes in the city can help people to get around easily. Korail offers train travel around the major destinations in the country.

You will find that there is plenty to do in South Korea and everyone can find fun activities and sights to see. Seoul features plenty of nightlife, as well as temples and historical sites of interest. Visitors can tour the palaces, visit Dongdaemun Market or Namdaemun Market, visit Seoul Grand Park, and more. In October, visitors might want to see the Jinju Lantern Festival. The Jinhae Cherry Blossom Festival occurs each spring. If you want to experience the great outdoors, you might want to consider a hike in Seoraksan National Park, which is the home of the highest mountain in the country.

Do I need a passport or visa to fly to Korea?

New Zealanders who are travelling to South Korea will need to have a passport, but they will not need to have a visa if they are staying as a tourist for up to 90 days. Travellers who are staying longer will find that they will need to have a visa, as will those who are travelling to stay and work in the country rather than just visiting for a vacation.
