Description

Immerse yourself in the cultures and traditions of Korea in this half day tour!

Making kimchi allows the participants to learn Korean history and culture, with the activity itself guided by a professional kimchi maker. After the kimchi-making session, you may taste the kimchi you made and even have it packed up.

Next, we'll try on Hanbok, a traditional Korean dress often characterized by vibrant colors and simple lines without pockets. The term itself means "Korean clothing", but it refers to the hanbok worn during the Joseon period and is worn in traditional festivals and celebrations.

We'll proceed next for "Darye" literally meaning "etiquette for tea" at a Korean Tea Ceremony. This ceremony has been kept among the locals for over a thousand years and is now being revived in the country, as it continues to be in the long tradition of intangible Korean art. The chief element this process is the ease and naturalness of enjoying tea within an easy formal setting.

Afterwards, we'll head for a visit at the Bukchon Hanok Village, a traditional village composed of alleys and hanok, which is preserved to show a 600-year old urban environment.

We'll also visit the Samcheongdong-gil Road that streches from Gyeongbokgung Palace to Samcheong Tunnel. Past the tunnel is the the Samcheong Park, famous for its thick forest and scenic views.

Our last stop is at Insa-dong Street, an important place located in the heart of the city, where old but precious and traditional goods are on display. Within the alleys of this street are galleries, traditional restaurants, tea houses and cafes.
