If you prefer a convenient vacation and skip the hassle of planning your own itinerary, then booking a tour package at an agency is the way go. Many would think that getting a tour package will cost an arm and a leg, well today, that’s no longer a fact. With Cebu’s growing demand to travel, many direct flights from different airlines are serviced here in Mactan. So YAY to affordable flights and affordable tour packages!
I recently went to South Korea to do a tri-city adventure on my own last June. While I was on a train from Seoul to Busan, I got a notification from Air You Go Travels about this crazy, you-can’t-say-no-to deal to SoKor. Since I have a Bohol beach trip on the available dates, I had my brother, Edd, flew instead.
Edd needed some time off at the office, so thought it would be a perfect gift. It was his first time in SoKor and the four (4) days, three (3) nights trip was a perfect introduction to South Korea’s culture and sights as their itinerary included national parks and heritage sites.
Before I continue and share with you my brother’s trip photos and itinerary from Air You Go Travels, just want to remind you that South Korea requires a visa for Filipino tourists. And yes, you can apply for one right here in Cebu. Here’s a step by step instruction on how to get a South Korea Tourist Visa in Cebu.
Here are the highlights of the Air You Go Travels South Korea tour:
Day 1: Petite France and Nami Island
Petite France is is a French-style theme park that was constructed in July 2008 in Gyeonggi Province, South Korea. Look for the Little Prince at the park! 😉
Namiseom Island or famously known as Nami is a moon shaped isle and is famous for its beautiful tree lined paths.
Day 2: Mt. Seorak, Gwongeumseong Fortress, Sinheungsa Temple
Mt. Seorak is the highest mountain in the Taebaek mountain range in the Gangwon Province in eastern South Korea.
Sinheungsa, sometimes spelled Shinheungsa, is a head temple of the Jogye Order of Korean Buddhism. It is situated on the slopes of Seoraksan in Sokcho, Gangwon Province, South Korea
Day 3: Gyeongbokgung Palace, N Seoul Tower, Myeongdong Area
Gyeongbokgung, also known as Gyeongbokgung Palace or Gyeongbok Palace, was the main royal palace of the Joseon dynasty. Built in 1395, it is located in northern Seoul, South Korea.
Namsan Seoul Tower is the first tower-type tourism spot in Korea. The top of the tower is at almost 480m above sea level, including Namsan Mountain (243m) and the tower’s own height (236.7m), making it one of the tallest towers in the Orient.
Myeong-dong is one of the busiest places in Seoul and is among Korea’s premier shopping destinations.
My brother had packed atleast a month of stories from his jaunt in South Korea, which he eagerly shared during family meals. One thing that can be noted from his stories is how fun and hassle-free the adventure was. Don’t just take his testimony and experience it yourself.
