We are pleased to offer this unique journey combining visits to the lands of South Korea and Taiwan. South Korea is a land of dazzling cities, friendly people and scenic landscapes. More than seventy years ago the country’s long stable dynastic rule was shattered by war and separation. But those difficult times made the Koreans a resilient people, succeeding economically while still holding on to their unique traditions and fascinating cultural heritage. Korea is littered with fortresses, temples and palaces, many of which are UNESCO World Heritage Sites. In addition, the peninsula is one of the most mountainous regions in the world and surrounded by some of the finest beaches. The country has become an economic powerhouse with many familiar household names, like Samsung, LG, Hyundai and Kia, to name a few. Taiwan, home to the nationalist government (Republic of China) that was expelled from the mainland in 1949, has maintained both its independence and democratic government. Formerly known as Formosa, this tiny island, (roughly 90 miles wide by 250 miles long) is as physically diverse as any in the world. It boasts four mountain ranges that reach heights of up to 13,000 feet, five cities with populations of over one million people, some of the world’s most beautiful and diverse landscapes, wonderful hot springs, an incredibly efficient transportation system as well as a highly motivated population. Join us in April as we discover these two nations. This will be a small group (max 25) and space is sure to fill quickly; we encourage you to book early to ensure your places on this wonderful new adventure.
