South Korea Travel
Experience One of Asia’s Most Dynamic Destinations
With gleaming skyscrapers, rural beauty, authentic crafts and living history, South Korea constantly surprises, always amazes and never disappoints. One of the world’s largest cities, Seoul is the bustling capital and gateway to the country. Marvel at the city’s sights, sounds and mouth-watering delights of kimchi and bulgogi. Wander the streets of the Insa-dong neighborhood and browse one-of-a-kind shops and galleries.
Further afield, an unforgettable visit to the demilitarized zone, the divide between North and South Korea, pulsates with recent history. Alternatively, travel into the verdant countryside to Gyeongju, known as “the museum without walls.” Once the capital of the Silla Kingdom, the city and surrounding area are replete with centuries-old palaces, tombs and temples. Nearby Yangdong Folk Village offers an insight into the rural life of yesteryear with its well preserved hanoks (traditional Korean homes) made of wood and stone. At the Korean peninsula’s southeastern tip lies Busan, one of the busiest ports on the planet and a place rightly famous for its vast array of seafood.
For relaxation, head to the volcanic island of Jeju, renowned for its pleasant subtropical climate an beautiful landscapes. Sip a cup of culture as you learn about Korea’s traditional tea ceremonies at the Osulloc Museum or marvel at Manjanggul Cave, a multi-level lava tube.
South Korea’s hospitality is legendary, its culture charming and its history palpable. Let A&K take you through this country in incomparable luxury, with attention to your every comfort.
