Korea, South Tours & Trips

South Korea has a rich history going back thousands of years, and there are many tours to Buddhist shrines, temples and folk villages. Adventure seekers should head to Gangwon-do Provence for some coastal zip-lining, as well as white water rafting and bungee jumping from the bridge over the Hantan River. There’s a mud festival in Boryeong (great fun with health benefits !) and hot springs in Suanbo.

Tips

  • South Korea has strict seating protocols, so it may be better to wait until you are told where to sit.
  • It is also considered rude to leave food on your plate. Once you’re done, leave your chopsticks on the table or on the chopstick rest.
  • Greet the locals with a bow and a firm handshake and say ‘Man-na-suh pan-gop-sumnida’, meaning ‘How do you do?’.
  • You may be required to leave your footwear outside when you enter certain restaurants so check with your tour guide before a reservation is made.
  • If you are offering a gift, wrap it in royal colors of red or yellow.
  • Pick up your drink glass with both hands. Finish your drink if you want a refill or leave a bit, if you don’t.
  • Remember that the front seats in a local bus are reserved for the elderly, handicapped and pregnant women.
  • Avoid pointing at people or things with your index finger and always accept money with your right hand.
