Welcome to South Korea! The journey begins as you touch down at Incheon International Airport. From there, you will be greeted by our driver, who will safely transfer you to your hotel for check-in. Then, take your time to wander around this breathtaking city at your own pace.
Today, enjoy South Korea's calm and clear seas.
Our Korean experience begins with a stop at Yongjin Beach, where the popular Korean drama Goblin was filmed. Of course, we don’t want you to miss the place where BTS posed for the "You Never Walk Alone" album cover. So, we will head to the BTS Bus Stop next, where you can pose for photos like your favorite members while basking in the long stretch of blue coastline in front of you.
Next is a quick stop for an authentic experience of a Korean foot spa before proceeding to Sokcho for the Gatbae Boat Experience, where you can actually pull the Gatbae boat with your own hands. After the entertaining and unique experience, there will be a stop at the Sokcho Traditional Market for some shopping. Afterwards, we will head back to Seoul to rest and cap off the day.
The third day begins with a visit to the Seoul Sky Observatory in the world's fifth-highest skyscraper. Take in the mesmerizing 360-degree panoramic view of Seoul right before your eyes at this first stop. Then, bring out the inner child in you as we visit the Lotte World Theme Park. Fill your day with adventures from the different attractions the theme park has to offer.
To round off the day, walk along the park lined with cherry blossoms to experience one of South Korea's most gorgeous seasons. Bask in the beauty and serenity of cherry blossoms at Sokchon Lake Park before heading back to the hotel.
Explore why ginseng is an important aspect of Korean culture as we visit the National Ginseng Gallery beginning this day. Then, we will also visit cosmetic shops to give you time to shop and replenish your favorite Korean skincare holy grails. South Korea is known for its top-tier skincare and cosmetic products, so make sure to get the most out of this stop! After that, get ready for another shopping adventure as we visit Duty Free and Myeongdong Street. We hope you are ready for more, as we will also visit Asia's largest underground retail complex, the COEX Mall, which houses the Starfield Library. After a long day full of retail experiences, we will head back to the hotel to cap off the day.
On this day, have a full experience of traditional Korean culture as we visit the famous Gyeongbokgung Royal Palace. Here, don’t miss wearing the traditional Hanbok to complete your Korean experience.
Then, take a drive to the Cheonggyecheon Stream, an 11-kilometer stream that passes through downtown Seoul, and to HiKR Ground to discover more about Korean pop music, skincare, and culture. Finally, before returning to Manila, take a short adventure to Hongdae Picasso Street, which is famed for its quirky cafés, boutiques, and modern galleries. There will also be a stop at souvenir stores to stock up on goodies and keepsakes before heading to Incheon International Airport to cap off your incredible South Korean journey.
Thank you, Ms. Rose and Access Travel, for making our Christmas vacation possible!
Even though you were only given a short time to plan and arrange our requests, you still provided us with excellent service.
Everything went smoothly during our eight days in South Korea. We visited Jeju, Busan, and Seoul with ease. No hassle! Which is what I want my family to experience.
Our guide, Ms. Sophie, handled my family's needs well. She even recommended local restaurants and places for us to try. It adds to the experience.
I can’t wait to visit more countries with Access Travel!
