Introducing South Korea

The bustling metropolis of Seoul, idyllic countrysides and craggy mountains covered in emerald forests; South Korea is literally old world meets new. Sleep in a traditional hanok, pay homage at the ancient Buddhist temple of Bulguk-sa, and relax on the white sand beaches of Jeju island. The possibilities are limitless. How about making the entire trip about food? Jajangmyeon, Korean fried chicken, bulgogi, soju — the country is a paradise for foodies. With a customized tour of South Korea, you can have it all.

Get in touch with our local travel experts to start planning.

When to go to South Korea

If you are looking for a quiet trip, visit the country during spring (March—May), the season of the cherry blossoms. Summer (June—August) is the high season, so you can expect queues at the museums and national landmarks. Until November you can enjoy the foliage and mild temperatures, while winter (November—February) is great for sports like hiking and skiing. Learn more.

How long to stay in South Korea

Plan for at least a week-long trip, which will give you plenty of time to explore the capital Seoul, other must-visit cities, and have a true food adventure. However, South Korea's customized trips should last at least two weeks, which will give you time to get out of the city and enjoy the natural beauties. With three weeks at your disposal, don’t miss a trip to Jeju island. Learn more.

Must-visit destinations in South Korea

The starting point of any custom South Korea holiday has to be Seoul. Visit Lotte World Tower and the 15th-century Changdeokgung Palace on the same day. Outside of the capital, South Korea offers many wonders, such as Hahoe Folk Village and Seoraksan. Adventurers can’t miss the Hwaamdonggul Cave (Jeongseon) and its stalactites. Busan boasts the pleasures of beaches, city life as well as historic marvels. Namhansanseong Provincial Park is perfect all year with views of forests and high peaks. If you are in South Korea during spring, do not miss out on Jinhae for its picturesque cherry blossom lanes.
