Korea Tours & Trips


South Korea is a country which offers something for the culturally inclined, the shopper and the beach lover.

Of course there is more to the country than that. Ancient and modern exist here side by side and this is very apparent in Seoul, the 600 year old capital. Apart from modern buildings, shopping precincts and contemporary architecture, there are many historical sites.

You can visit Changdeokgung, Seoul’s most beautiful ex royal palace built in 1395 or Gyeongbokgung, another palace close by, built in 1405 with attractive gardens, both just a stone’s throw away from the general hustle and bustle.

The heart of the city is Insa-Dong, an old quarter with narrow alleys beckoning the visitor and in which one finds many art galleries, traditional teashops and restaurants. Dominating Seoul is Namsan Mountain which is located in the city itself and from the top, reached by cable car, are wonderful panoramic views of the both the city and the surrounding area.

A must for shoppers are Seoul’s open air markets such as the renowned Namdaemun Market where one can purchase interesting merchandise at bargain prices.

The second stop in this country is usually Gyeongju, the ancient capital known as the Museum without Walls. It has more palaces, castles, temples and pagodas than anywhere else in Korea. It was once the capital of the Shilla Dynasty and dates back to the 7th Century.

Busan is an earthy city and a large port. Attractions here, apart from the port, are Yongdusan Park and Yongungsa Temple, also known as the Temple in the Mountains.

For relaxation and exciting scenery, a visit to Jeju Island is a must. Known as Korea’s answer to Hawaii, it has swaying palm trees, cactus plants, orange groves and more than a dozen sandy beaches. To top this off, the hinterland of the island boasts interesting volcanic landscapes.

Often referred as the "Land of the Morning Calm", Korea is located at a major crossroad of Northeast Asia. What makes South Korea so exciting is it has become a country of endless possibilities. Booking one of our Korea tours today and see for yourself.
