Is it Safe to Visit South Korea Now with my Family?

Jump to last reply

My husband,2 young children and I have tickets to go to South Korea next week (May16) on vacation. I must admit I am a little nervous given the latest threats from North Korea. I just read that N. Korea has warned commercial airlines not to go anywhere near its air space since the country can't guarantee their safety.

Also, tomorrow begins 12 days of joint military exercises between the American troups stationed in S. Korea and the S. Korean army.

We are Americans and will stand out in a crowd.

Would you go now?
