South Korea Real Food Adventure

From £1880 for 8 days
Trip Overview
Immerse yourself in the choose-your-own adventure atmosphere of South Korean food, from bibimbap to immense street food markets that you could get lost in (if it weren’t for the local guiding you to the best stalls!). South Korea’s food scene is often delightfully informal and meals in South Korea are all about finding your flavours. Chow down on meals served with dozens of toppings, light and crispy Korean fried chicken washed down with a small-batch craft beer, silky glass noodles stirred with colourful salad and the various delightful iterations of kimchi. Discover the flavourful diversity and heritage of this rich culinary scene.

The trip run by Intrepid Travel was poor. It was overpriced, particularly the single supplement which cost extra about the same as the total price for accommodation, which was already included!). Limited additional things to do other than in Seoul in my own time before and after trip.
