City by the Bay

San Francisco is a top holiday destination featuring scenic beauty and great ethnic and cultural diversity.
Step off the beaten path and head to San Francisco Bay and Twin Peaks. Explore the numerous day-trip ideas around San Francisco: Poplar Beach (in Half Moon Bay), Castello di Amorosa (in Calistoga) and Muir Woods National Monument (in Mill Valley). Dedicate the 28th (Fri) to wine at some of the top wineries in the area. There's lots more to do: take in the views from Golden Gate Bridge, get curious at California Academy of Sciences, take in nature's colorful creations at Japanese Tea Garden, and pause for some photo ops at Coit Tower.

Seoul, South Korea to San Francisco is an approximately 14.5-hour flight. Due to the time zone difference, you'll gain 17 hours traveling from Seoul to San Francisco. Expect much hotter temperatures when traveling from Seoul in December; daily highs in San Francisco reach 17°C and lows reach 8°C. Finish up your sightseeing early on the 29th (Sat) so you can travel to Los Angeles.
