Journeys International is excited to now offer trips to South Korea. While modern and developed, she still cherishes her traditions, unique culture and history. It is all vividly preserved in villages, museums, parks, monasteries and an extraordinary scenic landscape shaped by centuries of agriculture, battles and dynasties. The name Korea is derived from the Kingdom of Goryeo, also spelled as Koryŏ. It shares land borders with North Korea to the north, and oversea borders with Japan to the east and China to the west. Roughly half of the country's 50 million people reside in the metropolitan area surrounding its capital, the Seoul Capital Area, which is the second largest in the world. Join us for a modern yet traditional look at South Korea.
