Agoda.com, Asia’s global hotel booking site and part of Nasdaq-listed Priceline Group (Nasdaq: PCLN), today announced special deals for Chuseok, the Korean Harvest Festival.

Described as Korean Thanksgiving, Chuseok is one of the country's biggest holidays. Falling this year on September 12, Chuseok sees a mass exodus from the big cities as people go back to their hometowns for the long weekend to spend time with family.

One of the main events of Chuseok is charye – a memorial rite where Koreans pay respect to their ancestors. For charye, food offerings are made to ancestral spirits, inviting them to partake of the year's harvest. Korean national dress – the hanbok – is often worn and incense is burnt to hasten the family's offerings to the spirit world.

As a part of charye, special Chuseok foods are presented to the ancestral shrine dish by dish. One common Chuseok dish is songpyeon, a steamed crescent-shaped rice cake. Japchae – stir fried sweet potato noodles – and bulgogi – marinated barbecue beef – are also served, along with rice, fruits and fish. During the ceremony, family members bow to the shrine in respect and thanks.   

Chusoek presents a great opportunity for international travel to Korea. As Korean nationals head to the provinces, major city attractions are less crowded and larger cities offer a more relaxed urban experience.  Seoul and Busan host public events in celebration of the holiday, including traditional games such as tug-o-war, plus folk dancing, tightrope-walking and other cultural displays.
