Our South Korea Tours and Vacations

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

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.

South Korea Travel Highlights

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

What you need to know about Seoul

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 both the city and the surrounding area.

The best shopping experience in South Korea

A must for shoppers on South Korean tours 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.

Our recommended ‘must-do’ experience

For relaxation and exciting scenery, a visit to Jeju Island on Korea vacations 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 to 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.
