DETAILED DESCRIPTION

Dive into the unique and energetic nightlife of Busan and Seoul, two of Korea’s most thrilling cities. This tour focuses on an exploration of an authentic Korean night out, complete with cuisine, cocktails, and experiences. Split between the beach-laden Busan and bustling mega-city Seoul, you will get a taste a night life culture that is quintessentially Korean. Dine on kimchi and BBQ pork belly, belt out K-pop songs at a norebang (Korean karaoke), hop around the many pojangmachas (drinking tents) and discover the unique flavors of makgeolli and soju, staple Korean spirits. Top it off with access to upscale bars, electronic clubs and other hot spots on South Korea's list of premier venues. 

DAY-TO-DAY

DAY 1: Busan

Begin your nightlife excursion at Busan’s humming Jagalchi Fish Market, an elaborate maze of fresh seafood. Offering top quality delicacies such as the freshest tuna and the largest king crabs, Jagalchi is distinctly a Korean gem. Select your desired catch and it will be delivered to a nearby restaurant where you will be served immediately in traditional Korean style complete with soju (a Korean rice whiskey). Afterwards, stroll Haeundae Beach’s impressive boardwalk, the liveliest section of the beach city. Saturated with tantalizing street food and exotic nightlife bars and clubs, there is never a shortage of entertainment in Haeundae.

DAY 2: Busan

On your second night, indulge yourself with two different types of dining experiences. Begin at an upscale locale with a feast of galbi (the famous Korean short rib), soups and and endless array of side dishes. Served family-style in large portions with abundant drinks, this sumptuous meal will effectively prepare your stomach for the pojangmachas (drinking tents). A staple of the Korean people, pojangmachas serve a variety of appetizers and Korean beverages. Stick to the standard soju or try the bokbunja raspberry wine for an especially sweet ending to the night.

DAY 3: Busan

Night three takes off with a trip to a sul-jib, which literally translates to “alcohol-house.” Don’t let the name fool you, food is served and your party will be provided a private room. Ordering is done through an electronic screen, where you can purchase a wide variety of spirits (including the famous kiwi-soju smoothies) and anju, or Korean-style pub food. After your sul-jib experience, visit a norebang, the Korean karaoke with a twist: a VIP room featuring waiter service. Stay for a half hour or the entire night singing, eating, and drinking.

DAY 4: Seoul

Arrive in Seoul and take the night to relax and recuperate in your luxurious hotel-- we recommend either the Ritz-Carlton or the Conrad. Depending on your arrival time to Seoul, consider grabbing a bite in the exquisite hotel restaurant or going for a drink at a nearby venue.

DAY 5: Seoul

Spend the night in Hongdae, Seoul’s college town. Dinner will consist of a Korean barbeque feast prepared before you on your table’s built-in grill. Do-it-yourself or allow the helpful wait staff to cook the top-shelf meat to perfection. Follow dinner with a walk through the animated streets of Hongdae. Live musicians, games of chance, a wide assortment of hofs (Korean-style bars), nightclubs, and street food await you in this neon-lit district.

DAY 6: Seoul

Your sixth day will start with a journey through Itaewon, the epicenter of visitors in Seoul. A diverse blend of food and spirits, including many innovative fusion restaurants, is available in this bustling expat district. From there, cross the Han River to Apgujeong, one of Seoul’s preeminent cultural centers, for a taste of high-end Korean makgeolli, the unique rice wine Koreans claim contains numerous health benefits.

DAY 7: Seoul

Go “Gangnam-style” on your final day in Seoul, embracing the electric downtown centers of Gangnam and Cheongdam. Seoul’s finest restaurants, bars, and clubs are located in this enthralling urban jungle. A specialty guide will be provided for your final night, advising you on the plethora of options available, ranging from renowned traditional Korean eateries to exclusive night clubs.

DAY 8: Departure

Transfer to your flight and return home after your week of nightlife fun.
