Colors of the Wind: Autumn in South Korea

Korea has intrigued us for a while now, and we were there last year to work out an exciting itinerary for you. And, we believe that we have done so. So come and explore this tantalizingly and unexplored slice of East Asia with us? Visit the cities in the Land of the Morning Calm (that’s Korea), and you will figure out that they are anything but calm! Spend time in Seoul, with its towering and futuristic buildings, and eye searing Neon signage – it is a city that is constantly on the move and you will love the energy here. But, step out to into the serene country side and you get to see a land steeped in tradition. It’s truly a paradox. We start our trip in Seoul and post spending a few heady days there. We go deep into the country and visit the tranquil Gyeonju, which is the erstwhile capital of the Silla Dynasty, Known as ‘the museum without walls’, Gyeongju holds more tombs, temples, rock carvings, pagodas, Buddhist statuary and palace ruins than any other place in South Korea. Then it’s onward to Busan for a quick stop before we head to the famous Jeju Island. Jeju island is a natural World Heritage Site. It’s known for its beach resorts and volcanic landscape of craters and cave-like lava tubes. From visiting vast palaces and sleeping on the floor in ancient houses to hanging out in super fancy malls — South Korea really is a heady mix of new technology and ancient tradition. And what better month to go than October! Cool crisp weather, scenic colorful leaves. You can expect a heady mix of greens, yellow, orange and red leaves to greet you….it will be magical. Come explore with us.
