South Korea holidays 2024 & 2025

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 craftsmanship sit side by side with cutting-edge technology, karaoke bars and quirky cat cafés.

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 grottoes for views of the rugged coast. Whatever you decide to do, our specialists will ensure you make the most of your South Korea holiday.
