To most foreigners a visit to the land of the morning calm can be exciting, breathtaking, and sometimes stressful. With so much to experience and explore you might be forgiven for feeling overwhelmed with the vast array of options laid beneath your feet. Planning a trip might not be as easy as it would be back home, but there is one company that is taking the pain out of the equation and letting you do what you came here to do-relax and have fun!
"Adventure Korea"" provides "foreigners from all walks of live a chance to meet and make friends with other foreigners all over the world and of course Koreans who want to meet and exchange culture with foreigners". This gem of site offers regularly planned trips to popular destinations all around Korea. Deciding to finally visit the DMZ? Looking for a fun group to share a trip to the beautiful island of Jeju? "Adventure Korea" is the perfect place to start your planning as signing up for one of their many exciting trips is as easy as you could ever want it to be.
As the site says, their services are not exclusively offered to any one group, all are welcome. Foreigners and locals alike partake, and with that comes a rich and fulfilling experience that is as exciting as it is memorable. Whether your planning a trip to one of Korea's big must-sees, or simply want to take out some built up stress on the paintball course, "Adventure Korea" will have a program that will tickle your interest.
On the site you will find a list of all their currently available trips. All the information you require is presented clearly and there is no confusion as to what you will be up to and, for some most importantly, what it will cost you. Their trips are very reasonably priced and having been on a couple of their trips before I can tell you that I never felt cheated. Of course the cost will be reflective of what you are signing up for. A temple stay might cost you between KRW 35,000~KRW 100,000 but for a trip to Jeju you will be looking at around KRW 377,000. It all depends on what you have planned for yourself and, if none of their current scheduled trips fit what you are looking for, you can always complete the "customized trip" form of the site.
Some of the types of trips they currenting have going are a Sudeoksa Temple Stay, Seoraksan & Osaek Hot Spring day trip, a Halloween party cruise on Han River, an Autumn trip to Jeju, a deep sea fishing & biking trip on Seonyudo Island, a wine & traditional music festivals, river rafting, bungee jumping, and so much more! The choices are there and "Adventure Korea" will help you commit to ensure that your stay in Korea is one packed with fun and activity.
The site also has "trip reports" where you can read up on how previous adventures went down. On an overnight trip to the DMZ Samantha Strother wrote: "We were able to take photographs from anywhere we wanted. There weren't any soldiers watching us while we were at the lookout point. I could see the North Korean Propaganda Village in plain sight. Honestly, this was a remarkable sight to see". Testimonies like this can be read on almost all of their trips so you can take some peace of mind if you are in any way hesitant about wiring them your hard-earned cash.
If you are looking to visit Korea, or are already here and are getting stuck in the routine of it all, browse their website and take the plunge! Korea is an adventure with an abundance of exciting and new experiences waiting for you, and "Adventure Korea" is your ticket there.
