Chuseok Traffic

September 20th
Pack up and leave Seoul at 8:00pm
Arrive in Jinhae at 2:30am
Total time on the road 6 1/2 hours

September 23th
Pack up and leave Jinhae at 12:00pm after Kwang sees a TV report saying that the commute should only take 5 hours.
Arrive in Seoul at 8:00pm
Total time on the road 8 hours

On a normal day it takes about 4 1/2 hours to get to Jinhae from Seoul. This year Chuseok fell in the middle of the week and companies typically gave their employees Monday or Friday off so that they would have more flexibility on when to leave or come back from their hometowns.  This also meant that the traffic this year was BETTER than most years as there was not a mass exodus when everyone got out of work.

Can't wait till next year! I think we will be taking the wake up at 2am and leave in the middle of the night approach.
