RTT May Event: Lotus Lantern Festival and Itaewon Pubs in Seoul
Reach To Teach will be hosting a meet-up at the Annual Lotus Lantern Festival. This will be a great chance to meet fellow teachers and experience a very special cultural event! The Lotus Lantern Festival is a annual modern-day tradition that offers visitors the chance to experience Buddhist culture. The main event of the festival is the Lantern Parade, during which more than 100,000 brightly colored illuminated lanterns and lantern floats flood the streets of downtown Seoul. Come join us to celebrate this tradition and meet other RTT teachers!
