Went to South Korea with my wife and two kids for the summer. Was told by colleagues that Korea is great to visit in June and we were not disappointed. Went along with a tour group composed mostly of older retirees and young couples. We were the only family with young kids (mine were 7 and 5).
Pyeongchang will be the host of the 2018 Winter Games and it may be 6 years away but the town especially Alpensia resort looks ready for it right now with a lot of the infrastructure already built.
Alpensia is a huge resort which features ski slopes, a cluster of hotels, water park and ski jump tower, and more features that we didn't even get to see during our very short visit there.
The rooms were huge, and way bigger than we expected. We expected perhaps a king-size bed with one double bed but got two king-size beds instead. Room also had a spacious balcony, instantaneous hot water, free mineral water, coffee and tea, nice wardrobe, 42" (I think) flatscreen TV with an incredible number of Korean channels. Outside, the resort also offers a number of restaurants to fit your taste and budget, plus a convenience store and a place to rent bikes and other kiddie rides. Overall a fantastic place to stay and for a very reasonable rate too as part of the package. If I could choose one place to stay in Korea, this would be it. I would not have minded to spend our entire week in Korea in this one place, and I think the kids would have been quite happy too.
