Offer a taste of Korea with InsideAsia’s new culinary tour

InsideAsia Tours has launched a new foodie-focused itinerary called ‘Culinary Korea’. The tour serves as an introduction for clients hungry for a taste of Korea’s culinary culture.

Designed to satisfy food enthusiasts and adventure seekers alike, the new itinerary explores the diverse flavours and culinary traditions unique to South Korea.

InsideAsia Tour’s Senior South Korea Product Executive, Rebecca Barry, said this trip is an ‘exciting mix of food, culture and adventure – taking in the country’s vibrant traditions and breathtaking landscapes;.

“When we set out to design this trip, we really wanted to showcase the diversity of South Korea,
from hyper-modern Seoul to the jumbling alleyways of sea-front Busan, ultra-traditional Jeonju and into the more rural, mountainous side of the country,” said Rebecca.

“What many people don’t realise is that Korea is known for far more than its KBBQ and craft beer – it’s home to some of the world’s biggest markets serving up a range of local delicacies from the famous bibimbap rice bowl to fried pancake, fizzy rice wine, and so much more.”

Over 13-days the tour explores the bright lights of Seoul, historic Jeonju, Yeosu’s litany of vibrant Pocha tent restaurants, the tangerines of Jeju Island and coastal Busan offering a trail of Michelin restaurants.

“One of the highlights is definitely the Jagalchi fish market where you’ll find restaurants selling the freshest catch of the day – whether it be nakji octopus tentacles or spicy maeun-tang fish soup – it’s a flavour-filled adventure for those bold enough to put their tastebuds to the test,” Rebecca added.

“In a country where collectivism is central to culture, food serves as a way to develop and fortify
relationships and is one of the best ways for travellers to feel part of a bigger experience.”

The 13-day tour starts from £3709pp including four-star accommodation, daily breakfast, domestic travel and a range of experiences.
