DAY 1

START SEOUL

Seoul,Well hello there, and welcome to your 9-day trip to South Korea. You’ll meet your crew in the

afternoon, and in a super central location too. Following on from some free time to explore

the Insadong Hanok village, we’ll regroup for some famous Korean fried chicken (and beer

too if you like – you’re on vacation after all).

DAY 2

SEOUL

Seoul

Our Seoul City tour begins bright and early today with a visit to the traditional

Gyeongbokgung Palace. To cap off the experience, we’ll also have the chance to dress in

traditional Hanbok dress. Afterwards we’ll head to Seonsgu – one of the best up and coming

districts of Seoul – to check out the shops, cafes and treat ourselves to some lunch. Don't

pass up the opportunity to take part in a dynamic K-Pop dance class or to catch a stray at one

of Korea's famous baseball games. Tonight, you’re free to explore Seoul however you like.

Strapped for ideas? Why not try the Korean War Memorial Museum, or check out Seoul Tower

when it’s lit up at night?

Tour the Gyeongbokgung Palace (in Traditional Hanbok Dress)

Of all the traditional Korean experiences (and believe us, there are a lot of ’em) this might just

Palaces in Seoul from the old ruling dynasty. We’ll also dress up in the Traditional Hanbok dress

too.

Shop Til You Drop in Seongsu

Once home to hand-made shoe crasmen, Seongsu is now one of Seoul’s most exciting

Seoul Forest. You and your crew will have the chance to get lunch here, plus pick up some

souvenirs for your fave folks back home.

OPTIONAL EXPERIENCES:

Take a K-Pop Dance Class -

K-Pop has put South Korea on the map in recent years, so it’d be rude to go on a South Korea trip

and not learn to dance K-Pop style, right? We’ll be joined by K-Pop dance experts who’ll have you

busting moves like a pro in no time – whether you’re a natural or you have two le feet.

Watch a Live Baseball Game -


Baseball is HUGE in South Korea, and you’ll have the unique chance to watch a live game and revel

in the unique atmosphere. Trust us, this isn’t one to miss.
