DAY LOCATION(S) HOTEL MEALS DESCRIPTION
Day 1
Seoul, South Korea
Banyan Tree Club & Spa Dinner

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, South Korea
Banyan Tree Club & Spa Breakfast, Lunch, Dinner

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, South Korea
Banyan Tree Club & Spa Breakfast, Lunch, Dinner

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, South Korea
Hotel MVL Breakfast, Lunch, Dinner

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, South Korea
Golmangtae Breakfast, Lunch, Dinner

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, South Korea
Hyatt Regency Jeju Breakfast, Lunch, Dinner

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, South Korea
Hyatt Regency Jeju Breakfast, Lunch, Dinner

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, South Korea
Hyatt Regency Jeju Breakfast, Lunch, Dinner

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.

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

The Remote Lands Guides were excellent. The cars used for transportation were roomy and clean. The hotels were 5 star and their attention to detail was over the top. There was only perfection from the people we met and it was also comforting to know that our trip was being carefully monitored by Remote Lands supervisors every step of the way. We would recommend Remote Lands to anyone needing exceptional service in Asia.
