This tour delivers the comprehensive view of KOREA; history, heritages, food, nature and people.

You will travel SEOUL first and transfer to SUWON – SOKCHO – GYEONGJU – BUSAN – JEJU clockwise.

Historical point of view, you will study about JOSEON DYNASTY at SEOUL and SILLA DYNASTY at GYEONJGU.

To let you show the natural scenery, we selected SEORAKSAN MOUNTAIN and JEJU ISLAND.

Regardless of the places, you will visit, or pass by several Buddhist temples because Buddhism was chosen by governing class and they are located at deep mountains (at that time). No need to look as a religion, it is just regarded as major heritage.

At BUSAN, you will have the chance of observing the rich and the poor Korean people.

If you choose Weekend Meal, or Special Meal, we promise to provide every different meal for 10 days. The unique food culture is one of meanings why you need to join this tour.
