DAY 1 / SEOUL
Seoul is the dazzling capital of South Korea. With over 10 million inhabitants and a unique mix of the progressive and the traditional, there is much to discover here—from shrines, temples, and palaces to mountain hiking trails.
Arrive and check-in to your hotel. The remainder of the day is yours to rest after a long journey or venture out to explore this fascinating city.
DAY 2 / SEOUL (B/L)
On your first full day in Seoul, discover the city on a guided tour. In the morning, you’ll see Jogyesa Temple, one of the most significant Buddhist temples in all of Korea and a symbol of Korean Buddhism. Then visit Cheong Wa Dae, the executive office and official residence of the country’s head of state.
Next, visit the Blue House, a complex built largely in Korea’s traditional architectural style, with only a few modern elements. Gyeonbok Palace, which you’ll see next, was built in 1395. It’s the largest of the five grand palaces constructed during the Joseon dynasty, and served as the royal residence during this time. Your final stop this morning is at the National Folk Museum, which should give you a glimpse into Korean culture and daily life.
After a lunch of local fare at a nearby restaurant, head to UNESCO-listed Changdeok Palace. This Joseon-dynasty palace is among the best preserved in the country. Next, discover Insadong Alley, with its tea shops and modern galleries.
The last stop of the day is Namdaemun Market, a traditional market that offers every imaginable product—from clothing and textiles to handicrafts, food, farm and fishery products, and imported merchandise.
DAY 3 / SEOUL (B)
The day is yours to explore Seoul at your own pace. Stroll next to Cheong-gye-cheon, pay a visit to the Bukchon Hanok Village, or visit the Gwangjang Market, Seoul’s largest food alley, for some delectable treats.
DAY 4 / SEOUL / HONG KONG (B)
Following a leisurely breakfast, check out of your hotel. A transfer will take you to the Seoul airport for your flight to Hong Kong. After checking in to your hotel, the remainder of the day is spent at your leisure.
DAY 5 / HONG KONG (B)
Breakfast is served at your hotel this morning. After, enjoy a half-day tour of this dynamic city’s cultural wonders, landmarks, and attractions. See Victoria Peak, the mountain covering the western half of the island of Hong Kong and Aberdeen, known for its floating village and seafood restaurants, where you’ll have the option to take a sampan ride. Next, discover historic Repulse Bay in the southern part of Hong Kong, then tour Stanley Market to shop for bargains. Before returning to your hotel, you’ll visit a renowned jewelry workshop.
In the afternoon, experience Hong Kong from an iconic, 1920’s-style open-top tramcar. Here, you’ll witness both historical and contemporary landmarks, and learn about life in the city from a local guide. The tour includes a two-day tramway system ticket so that you can explore the city on your own, experiencing an insider’s perspective.
DAY 6 / HONG KONG (B/L or D)
Enjoy breakfast at your hotel before embarking on a food-themed walking tour of Hong Kong—a paradise for foodies. Accompanied by a local guide, you’ll taste the many flavours this city has to offer, savouring classic dishes and drinks at the preferred restaurants of Hong Kong’s residents. Learn about Hong Kong’s culinary history and culture, while also getting a glimpse into the local way of life. On the tour, choose to explore one of three of the city’s most renowned areas: Central and Sheung Wan, Sham Shui Po, or Tai Po.
DAY 7 / HONG KONG (B)
