South Korea on June 1 reopened two of their airports (Jeju International Airport and Yangyang International Airport) to international travelers without the need to present a visa. If you're looking for a direct flight, South Korean low-cost airline, Fly Gangwon, is flying directly to Yangyang County from Clark International Airport in Pampanga. Flying to Yangyang International Airport lets travelers go around both in Gangwon Province and Seoul Metropolitan Area.

Travelers from Mongolia can also follow suit starting on October 1. Just make sure that the group tour is arranged through a designated travel agency.
