DirectRooms.com – Jeju Commemorates to Remember Those That Died in Military Service on 6 June 2011


DirectRooms.com reveals that residents in Jeju and around South Korea will be holding commemorative services for all of the military personnel that died in the Korean War and other wars fighting for their country.

Jeju, Korea, South, May 07, 2011 --(PR.com)-- The services are part of Memorial Day which is a public holiday for residents and is celebrated on 6th June every year. Visitors to Seoul can see special memorial ceremonies being held at the National Cemetery and places like Jeju and other regions.

Over the course of the Korean War close to 140,000 soldiers died in battle while over 450,000 were wounded and civilian casualties were far greater. The day pays tribute to these thousands of servicemen and women that defended the nation.

Visitors staying at hotels Jeju can take a visit to the War Memorial of Korea which is just an hour away in the capital of Seoul. The memorial is like a large museum and visitors can learn about many of the wars that Korea has been involved in and see relics along with military equipment used in the frontlines.

A highlight is the Combat Experience Room which recreates the life and death experience of soldiers fighting in the Korean War with lighting, sound effects and even the smell of gunpowder.

Lek Boonlert, marketing head at DirectRooms.com commented: “As a public holiday, finding hotels with availability on Jeju may become difficult as it’s a popular destination for people as they get away from the capital and head to the beaches.”
