About this trip

Want to experience something truly unique and utterly delicious? Look no further than the busy streets, misty mountains, cherry blossoms, and abundant street food of 2018’s top travel destination: South Korea


Join Cheema's Travel and an intrepid group (of 8-10) of like-minded foodies for 10 nights and 11 days of adventurous gastronomy, as we search out every scrumptious delicacy that this exotic peninsula has to offer. This trip is not for the faint of heart! Korea is known for having spicy and pungent dishes, such as kimchi and tteokbokki.


Over the course of the trip, you will have mastered at least five Korean specialties including gochujang (traditional red pepper paste) and makgeolli (rice wine) with the best and most notable Korean chefs/cooks, including Monk Jeong Kwan from the Netflix original show, “Chef’s Table" all while experiencing autumn on this kingdom on a tiny peninsula.


On this trip, you won't just visit South Korea, you will be fully immersed in Korean culture. You’ll get to experience the absolute best of the country: historic palaces, traditional villages, relaxing and indulgent saunas, and more. You’ll experience the bustling capitol city Seoul, food history-packed Jeonju, mountainous Baekyangsa, and the seafood lover’s haven Busan.
