    What to Expect
    Your morning starts with a pickup between 8am and 8:30am by air-conditioned coach at your Seoul hotel. After the drive out of the capital, head onward to Suwon — a historic town in the Gyeonggi-do province.

    First, visit the UNESCO World Heritage–listed Hwaseong Fortress — a site of huge commercial and military significance during the Joseon era. As your explore, listen as your guide brings the site’s turbulent history to life.

    After lunch, delve into Korean customs and traditions at the Korean Folk Village. Admire the replica Joseon-era houses, see arts and crafts workshops, and enjoy free time at your leisure. During your visit, gain insight into life on the Korean peninsula way before the skyscrapers arrived.

    Sample Korean ginseng at a ginseng center and learn how the plant is used to treat tiredness, loss of appetite, sickness, and many other ailments. Then, return in comfort to your Seoul hotel to conclude your 8-hour tour.
