South Korea Luxury Land Journeys

Discover the hidden gems of South Korea

From one of the most heavily militarised borders in the world to designated ‘slow cities’, South Korea is a lovely surprise wrapped in culture, history and breathtaking natural beauty. The only thing that surpasses South Korea’s striking beauty is the graciousness of its locals.

With a neighbour that is closely guarded and shut off from the rest of the world, South Korea is the most delightful paradox in the Korean peninsula. Here, people shop till the wee hours of the morning, lovers kiss under pink cherry blossoms, tranquil ‘slow cities’ exist, and heart-warming hospitality makes you feel right at home. South Korea is the holiday destination everyone deserves.

The cities are a wonderful amalgamation of tradition and modernity while the countryside seems untouched by time. Green, hilly countryside, sub-tropical islands, high-tech cities, delicious cuisine, and 5,000-year-old culture, South Korea has many tricks up its sleeve to ensure each day of your holiday is memorable. With a transport network that works with clockwork precision, shuffling between big city lights and rural tranquility is a breeze in the Land of the Morning Calm.
