InsideAsia Tours Unveils Three New South Korean Itineraries

InsideAsia Tours has launched three new itineraries to South Korea as interest in the destination grows among international travelers.

The new itineraries offer something for every kind of traveler: The “Korean Wave” for K-pop buffs, featuring filming locations, hip neighborhoods and the destination’s iconic cuisine; the “Essential South Korea” itinerary covering all the major sites in a wallet-friendly way; and the “South Korea Family Adventure,” an active, teen-friendly itinerary fit for the whole family.

The 13-day “Korean Wave” itinerary offers travelers the opportunity to experience K-culture hotspots in Seoul, Jeonju, Busan and Gangneung. Seoul’s K-wave locations include K-Star Road and Starfield Library. Travelers can explore the backdrop to many famous K-pop videos on an excursion to the abandoned theme park, Yongma Land, or learn the hottest new dance moves in a K-pop dance class.

In Jeonju, travelers will be transported to some of their favorite K-dramas, with the chance to rent a traditional hanbok and wander the cobblestone streets. They will also stay in a traditional hanok guest house. Besides sandy beaches and towering high-rises, Busan is also home to the Hapcheon Movie Theme Park, one of the largest film and television studio sets in Korea. In Gangneung, guests can visit the BTS Bus Stop before walking the sandy shores of Yeongjin Beach or taking in the immersive exhibits at the ARTE Museum.
