Day 4 Seoul
Day 5 Busan
Day 6 Busan
Drive up north for an hour to the ancient capital of Gyeongju and visit its temples and historic sites. The history of the city is intriguing and tells the story of the Silla dynasty. It’s also a great place to learn about the way Buddhism, Confucianism and foreign influences have helped shape modern Korean society. The tour will end with an hour’s drive south to the city of Busan in the southeast.
Day 7 Busan
Busan is often praised as having one of the most eye-catching cityscapes in Asia, so start your day at the top of the lofty Busan Tower to take in the views. Then head down for some street food in Jagalchi and Bupyeong markets, which have played their part in giving Busan its reputation as the culinary capital of the country.
Day 8 Busan
You’ll have today at leisure to explore Busan. We recommend a visit to Gamcheon Culture Village which is made up of polychromatic houses spilling out onto the rolling hills that surround the city. We also suggest visiting Haedong Yonggungsa Temple, which is perched precariously over the cliffs looking out onto the Sea of Japan.
