What I love about Teaching English in South Korea is that there always seems to be some sort of festival going on. Last Month was no acceptation. Not only was it St. Patrick's Day, but it was also Holi Hai. Holi Hai is an Indian festival, which involves throwing powdered paint at each other. What makes this even more fun is that everyone was wearing white clothing. Holi Hai festivals were held all over South Korea, however, we decided to go to Busan, which was amazing, it was on the beach and the weather was perfect!

The cost of this Festival was less than €7 or $10 and this included all the paint, the music & the delicious Indian food, which was given out at the end of the festival. The samosas were amazing!

Watch the Video below - it says it all:
This was, by far one of the most fun festivals I've attended while teaching in South Korea so far. The atmosphere was amazing, and not just because it was St. Patrick's Day weekend. English Teachers, from all over South Korea came to Busan. The atmosphere was amazing. If you are thinking about teaching English in South Korea, then click below and take the quiz. It was one of the best decisions I have ever made.
