Cuisine & Culture of Korea

South Korea 

8 Days, 7 Nights

This itinerary is designed for those who seek a more immersive - and delicious - experience in South Korea.  In addition to visits to historical sites, and areas of immense natural beauty, the inclusion of a temple-stay guarantees guests will learn more about this fascinating culture, Buddhism, and perhaps a bit about themselves.

Korean food has been the cuisine on all foodies’ lips in recent years. There’s Korean BBQ for starters – what’s not to like about sizzling your own strips of meat on a BBQ set up on your table? – but that’s just the tip of the culinary iceberg. With a smorgasbord of sauces, garnishes and pickled side-dishes accompanying every meal, dining in Korea is all about crafting your meal to taste. And, despite the prevalence of beef and Korean fried chicken, it’s not all meat based. Silky tofu, glass noodle salads, sushi-like kimbap, and, of course, kimchi – vegetarian options are plentiful. Learn how to make green onion pancakes, slurp up spicy seafood breakfast soups, tuck into Buddhist fare on your overnight temple stay and delve into the intricacies of the country’s signature dish bibimbap in Jeonju, arguably Korea’s foodie capital.
