Easy and quick Korean expressions!

호캉스 [ hokangseu ]

When talking about vacations, many Koreans say 호캉스. 호 is from 호텔 (hotel) and 캉스 is from 바캉스 (vacance). 호캉스 means ‘a vacation mostly staying in a hotel’. These days, Koreans seem to prefer to rest not doing any special activities, just enjoying the hotel’s facilities, especially for short vacations.

For 호캉스, the hotel facilities such as swimming pools, restaurants, bars, and spa are usually available and of good quality.
