The Best of Japan and South Korea


The Best of Japan and South Korea

Style: TravellerCultural discovery away from the crowds
Duration: 16 days
Type: GroupSmall group tours with a maximum of 12 travellers

If there are two countries that combine perfectly for a small group tour, Japan and South Korea are it. Beautiful ancient Buddhist temples and Shinto shrines, the tragic and moving Hiroshima Peace Memorial and Kyoto, one of the best-preserved cities in Japan are all included. The little visited Nara is home to no less than 8 UNESCO World Heritage Sites and to some of the best temples in the country. Of course, the food in Japan is world famous but the South Korean cuisine is equally intriguing and delicious. We take a ride on the Bullet Train and stay on a farm with a local Japanese host before taking the ‘Beetle’ Hydrofoil to cross between Japan and South Korea. You will find that what charms the most about the South Korea is its proud promotion of age-old traditions and culture. It is a fascinating mix of the ancient and modern and with a visit to the Korean Demilitarized Zone we view a not so distant part of history.
