DETAILED DESCRIPTION

Treat your body to a refreshing, relaxing and authentically Korean vacation. In Korea, health is a national obsession, which has led to the creation of numerous facilities, methods, and elixirs to treat the body. Begin in the capital of Seoul, which features the finest Korean medicine and traditional healers in the nation. Embark on a hike in the scenic Bukhansan National Park, embracing the Korean belief that hiking is one of the keys to longevity. Venture to Busan to indulge in the country’s largest jjimjilbang, or spa, a truly revitalizing and authentically Korean experience. Travel to the southern Jellado-province, where you will indulge in the verdant green tea fields and unique spas of Boseong on your way to the city of Yeosu, renowned for possessing one of the most beautiful coastlines in Asia. Cap off the trip with an island getaway to Jeju, a UNESCO World Heritage Site, one of the New Seven Wonders of the Nature, and a pride of Korean people.

DAY-TO-DAY

DAY 1: Seoul

Begin your Korean revitalization journey in Seoul. Today, you will meet with a traditional Korean healer, who will provide you a number of herbal remedies native to the Korean peninsula. Dine at one of Seoul’s finest seafood restaurants, where you will be presented with a plethora of banchan (Korean side dishes), specially designed for a healthy digestive system. Spend the night at Banyan Tree Resort, with full access to their world class spa facilities.

DAY 2: Seoul

Spend the day on a health-centric culinary excursion with an expert epicurean who will escort you on a journey of Korean food and drink designed to boost stamina and fight disease. Later, take a shopping tour, hitting both traditional and contemporary markets for upscale cosmetics and medicine. End the day with a luxurious cruise along the mighty Han River.

DAY 3: Seoul

Head outside the city limits for a hike in Bukhansan National Park, a favorite activity among Koreans who claim it the secret to longevity. Choose from a variety of routes, ranging from light walks to intense treks, all of which culminate in a stunning vista of Seoul’s skyline. When finished, return to the city and decompress in the spa.

DAY 4: Yeosu

Fly to Yeosu, a southern coastal city with a breathtaking coastline. Explore the Hyangiram Temple, where you can take part in some light hiking. Next, visit the small island of Odongdo, a fantastic destination to refresh in the clean, coastal air. Golfing, boating, and fishing options are also available.

DAY 5: Boseong

Explore the Boseong Green Tea fields. These almost alien-green fields produce some of the country's best green tea, which is widely known to be very beneficial for your health. Spend the morning hiking, biking, or simply cruising past these stellar vistas (especially in the springtime). Cap-off your experience with a visit to the green tea sauna, a rare experience for visitors to be treated to this revitalizing skin treatment.

DAY 6: Jeju

Fly to Jeju, the largest island and honeymoon capital of Korea. This gorgeous isle recently joined the list of the New Seven Wonders of Nature. Take the day to unwind and explore the beaches surrounding the resort-- we recommend The Shilla or the Hyatt Regency.

DAY 7: Jeju

Experience the island paradise at your leisure. Hike the mountains, explore the countryside, golf, swim, dive, fish, or just stroll the beaches of this stunning locale. If you wish, Remote Lands can schedule an appointment with an acupuncturist, a method of healing popular in Korea.

DAY 8: Jeju

Enjoy your final day on Jeju Island as you wish. We recommend a trip to Seongsan Ilchulbong, also known as “Sunrise Peak,” a volcanic crater ideal for viewing the sunrises (or sunsets) of this island escape.

DAY 9: Departure

Fly back to Seoul and board your international long-haul flight, refreshed and ready for life back at home.
