Officials from Jeju Special Self-Governing Province said they will prepare two more temporary incense altars at Yangji Park, a public cemetery in Jeju City, for Seollal, the Lunar New Year Day on Feb. 10. These measures are to accommodate the expected increased numbers of visitors who traditionally come to pay respect to their ancestors on this day. For the convenience of visitors, the province plans to rearrange the opening hours from between 7 a.m. and 6 p.m., with buses to Yangji Park running every 10 to 15 minutes.
