Discover k-culture at its finest on this once-in-a-lifetime trip to South Korea! Explore bustling neighborhoods, take in breathtaking scenery, and volunteer at a local orphanage as you experience the best of this fascinating country.
South Korea is the undiscovered gem of the far east, with food, k-culture, and mountainous scenery that you will never forget! Our discovery trip begins in Seoul, where we explore regal palaces, bustling downtown neighborhoods, and have fun at the theatre. We then tour Korea’s modern port city of Busan, visit the ancient capital city of Gyeongju, and explore the rural beauty of Korea’s South Jeolla Province. Our final destination is Jeju Island, recently listed as one of the new Seven Natural Wonders of the World. After a couple of days exploring this island paradise, we will go back to Seoul to k-party it up with some k-pop hologram shows and a meal at the N-Seoul Tower.
You’ll also have the opportunity to gain community service hours in a rewarding experience working with local students at a summer camp, an enriching experience for both you and the people you’ll meet there. This program is perfect for any teen looking to gain a global perspective while discovering one of the world’s most fascinating cultures.
