It’s never too late to celebrate a holiday and enjoy a little vacation. Maybe over the winter you were too busy with work or was working all day on Valentine’s Day. Take some days off and check out a variety of places to go in the world. There is so much to see and do in the world that missing a holiday should not be an excuse to not celebrate it. There are various places that are great to check out no matter what time of the year it is. Take some days off, get on a plane, and check out these places for a great last minute holiday for your enjoyment.

Take a trip to Seoul, South Korea to experience traditional Korean culture and its many delicious delicacies. Explore the National War Museum that commemorates the Korean War and the soldiers and history of it. Eat some delicious rice cakes called tteokbokki, chicken soup called samgyetang, and eat lots and lots of spicy kimchi. Go visit the downtown shopping district in Myeongdong where all the high end fashion stores are located. Journey to the top of the Seoul Tower, which can be seen from anywhere in the city. Watch The Ballerina Who Loves B-Boy located at the B-Boy Theatre in Hongdae. It is a live non-verbal musical play that showcases the art of b-boying (commonly known as break dancing), ballet, and other hip-hop dances.

The Philippines is also a good choice to take a last minute holiday. Try exotic foods such as balut and dinuguan which are dishes made from eggs and pig blood. With its tropical climate you can experience going to the beach and relax on the shores in Boracay. Visit traditional Filipino villages in the mountains of Baguio or go sail on boats to underwater caves in Palawan.
