Buddhist temples, imperial palaces, futuristic architecture and markets so vast they take up whole city blocks…South Korea is a multifaceted destination. Our specialists know the country well and can introduce you to its many attractions, from Seoul’s 14th-century palaces and Gyeongju’s tombs to the volcanic landscape of Jeju Island.
Along with seeing the country’s main highlights, we’ll help you explore Korean culture which sees ancient traditions, customs and craftmanship sit side by side with cutting-edge technology, karaoke bars and quirky cat cafes.
Take a trip to the North Korean border zone for a better understanding of the region’s complex politics, explore the markets with a local for a taste of the country’s finest specialities, or hike to mountainside grottos for views of the rugged coast.
