Going to be in Korea for a week or so? We take the best of our signature East and West Coast trip to bring you the Highlights of Korea Tour. We start in Seoul and then take you clockwise around the entire peninsula making stops in Sokcho, Samcheok, Gyeongju, Busan, Yeosu and Jeonju. We finally make our way back to Seoul again after seeing a lot of what Korea has to offer.
You can also add on a 3 day Jeju Island extension if you really insist on not missing a thing. We go into depth about Korean culture and the nuances of dialects to get a holistic understanding of who the Korean people are. After the trip you will be saying one of two things: I know everything about Korea now and I’m ready to go home or just simply, I’ve discovered Korea and now I’m never going back home! There’s nothing in between here.
