Like most countries in Asia, South Korea is a remarkable blend of the old and the new. On one hand, the bustling city of Seoul is your typical metropolis – a melting pot of the various cultural nuances that come together to form the modern, fast-paced, trend-setting face that South Korea shows the world.
On the other hand, there are the pristine forests and mountains dotting the countryside, each a mark of at least one pivotal event and battle that has a hand in the shaping of South Korea as we know it today.
While four days isn’t really going to let you cover all of these historical landmarks both in and out of Seoul, it’s still plenty of time visit some of the more memorable landmarks the country has to offer. It’s also plenty of time to get a peek at some of the locations that you may have seen in your favorite Korean drama.
With that in mind, we’re letting you know of three tour packages that just might interest you:
