Travelling out of Seoul during Chuseok

Hi, i will be in Seoul for the period 17/09-21/09. May i check if it is advisable to travel to major attractions such as Mount Seorak, Everland, Nami Island and Lotteworld during this period? Thank you in advance.

Highways would be congested I am afraid. If possible try to defer the dates

If we are traveling via subway, does that means it is ok to still go to those attraction?

I'd suggest visiting Korean Folk Village/ Namsangol Hanok Village or one of the palaces. Theme parks are best to visit during weekdays, not on weekend or public holidays if you want to avoid crowdedness.

Travelling on a subway during this time is not a problem since most Koreans who are travelling to their hometown used buses or trains.

Seoul is pretty quiet during Chuseok. But the theme parks will be busy.

For intercity travel you should check this article

Nami Island should be ok, but the shuttle bus won't be operating on Chuseok Sept 19th.
