South Korea is an unexplored slice of East Asia. A land of ancient ruins, romantic legends, natural wonders, extraordinary landscapes and packed modern cities, South Korea can trace its history back half a million years. These days most cities consist of a new fashionable area with coffee shops and karaoke bars, but in these same cities you will also find the Korea of old; alleyways and street markets in an intriguing maze where vendors sell everything, just as they have done for hundreds of years.
Our Scenic South Korea tour features many of the island’s wonderful highlights; the bustling metropolis of Seoul is a place to experience at least once in a lifetime. Modern skyscrapers, shopping malls and pop culture meets Buddhist Temples, Palaces and street markets. Boseong is the green tea capital of Korea, the surrounding climate and soul is believed to be the key, as it provides perfect conditions to grow this unique green tea that has a distinct taste and aroma.
Busan – Korea’s second biggest city is full of character and provides many different attractions such as temples, mountains and beaches. Gyeongju – Known as ‘the museum without walls’, the history of this place is outstanding. Gyeongju was originally the capital of the ancient Kingdom of Silla (57 BC -935 AD) and was at one point the 4th largest city in the world.
South Korea offers a wealth of wonderful sights and experiences. What better way to explore them than on a Wendy Wu tour?

Sue was so knowledgeable and courteous. I have travelled with Wendy Wu before and the experience was unparalleled.
StephenA holiday of a lifetime. Every day brought more "wow" moments. Fabulous country, people, sights, food (we ate like kings) experiences and in particular both our national guide and his local guides. A rating of excellent does not adequately describe just how good this holiday was. Extremely high quality holiday in every respect right from booking through to landing back in the UK.
The tour was fantastic from start to finish with so many memorable places seen. George was a wonderful tour guide who gave 110% looking after us. The food was great, hotels good abd the regional tour guides were very knowledgeable.Valerie
The tour was as good as you can get. Plenty of amazing sites through the whole country and good activities, combined with just the right amount of spare time. Our guide was great, full of information, friendly and more then willing to give a helping hand. All in I would totally recommend this tour and Wendy Wu and give a big thumbs up to our guide.Paul
