In case you’re already wondering why we missed Gyeongju and the southeast, we had to entirely skip Gyeongsangbuk-do due to the COVID-19 outbreak. In fact we were scheduled to arrive in Gyeongbuk the day my home country (Canada) issued a travel advisory against Daegu and the surrounding areas, and we had to quickly change our plans, mid-trip, to spend more time in Seoul before hitting Jeollanam-do and the southwest instead, ending with the 16-day itinerary above.

Our postponed visit to the southeast, to be completed at a latter date, is tentatively planned as follows:

Day 17: Arrive at Gimhae
Day 18: Gimhae – Busan
Day 19: Busan
Day 20: Busan – Gyeongju
Day 21: Gyeongju
Day 22: Gyeongju – Daegu – (Rental Car) Haeinsa – Pohang
Day 23: Pohang – Yangdong – Hahoe
Day 24: Hahoe
Day 25: Hahoe – Andong
Day 26: Andong – Daegu (Return Rental Car) – Seoul
Day 27: Seoul
Day 28: Seoul – Incheon Airport
