Taste, Performance, and Myths & Legends

Conquer Western Part of Korean Peninsula & Jeju Island

  • Travel period

    13 days 12 nights

  • Month to Visit

    All year round

You will stay in Gwangju and Jeju Island for 3 days each with an itinerary included in your visit to Korea. On your tour, you can experience the art and taste of Korea, as well as its beautiful islands.
Located in the southwest of the Korean Peninsula, "Gwangju" is known as a place of etiquette, food, and art. You can see the essence of Korean traditional art through a "taste" trip where you can try various foods specific to Gwangju and see a traditional performance at the Gwangju Traditional Culture Center.

On Jeju Island, which has as many stories as Greek mythology, you can enjoy the nature of Jeju Island by hiking on Mt. Halla, which is designated as a UNESCO World Natural Heritage site.
I recommend this trip if you are curious about the hidden stories of Jeju Island!
