Summer in South Korea

South Korea photo

Experience South Korea with Dr. Matt Bowler! The adventure begins in Seoul, a modern, yet ancient city that is home to tech giants, automotive and financial leaders and over 30 MILLION people. Seoul is unique in that it was destroyed 75 years ago during the Korean War and rebuilt into a thriving modern city. It is tucked into gorgeous mountainous terrain that gives it a unique contrast. In Seoul, you will experience visits to businesses like Samsung, Hyundai, and the Seoul Tower. Cultural encounters include ancient palaces, world class food, entertaining night-life, and the Blue House, home to South Korea’s president.

Students will participate in a “food tour” of Seoul and experience the festival atmosphere of the Myeongdong district near the Seoul Tower, where they will take in an English language comedy show. We will also visit the region’s supersized open-air markets, each focused on various products such as foods, toys, garments, and even a market only open at night. One day we will visit the demilitarized zone between South and North Korea, a very popular tourism spot. After our time in Seoul, we will take a bullet train to Busan, along Korea’s southern coast, to experience one of the world’s most exciting and beautiful beach locations. Potential activities in Busan include interactive taekwondo training, the Korean spas, beaches, temples and palaces.
