Those who cannot afford a lengthy vacation this summer seem to be finding respite from the heat in Seoul or just taking day trips to nearby areas, recent data suggests.
According to an analysis of some 16.52 million searches made through SK Telecom's smartphone navigation app T map in July, Seoul's amusement park Lotte World was the most-searched destination.
It was followed by Eulwang Beach in Incheon, Haeundae Beach in Busan, water park Ocean World in Hongcheon, Gangwon Province and Everland, another amusement park on the outskirts of Seoul.
"The number of searches related to travel destinations rose 14 percent compared to the same period last year", an SK Telecom staffer said.
