What should I expect from the Pyeongtaek holiday lights display?

Every year Pyeongtaek sets up a series of free holiday light displays that last from December through March. The holiday lights installations are different each year and feature an eclectic display of imagery that makes winter a little more delightful. Since Christmas is considered a romantic holiday in Korea, the lights are often themed toward romance rather than the standard Christian or Santa themed lights seen in Western countries.

Every display in each part of Pyeongtaek will be different. Each year we go see all of them over their 3-4 months on display. We find it a fun way to spend an evening during the winter.

How can I enjoy the holiday lights with minimal discomfort?

It’s going to be cold, especially at the lights display on the lake.

  • Dress for the cold. Wear warm gloves, hat, jacket, and maybe even long-underwear. Warm is the key to happiness in winter, so don’t play yourself. Go buy cold-weather clothes and get serious about staying warm.
  • Drink something warm. Take tumblers of hot chocolate or plan to stop at a cafe to warm up and enjoy a drink and dessert.
  • Pay attention to wind chill. If the wind is blowing, it’s not the right day to view the lights. Wait for a calm day.
  • Clear days mean cold nights. If you are going out on a clear night, dress EXTRA warm.
  • Get the pocket and hand warmers from a quickie-mart and use them. Everyone does. It’s how we manage to not wear gloves in winter.

Where can I see the Pyeongtaek holiday lights?
