Japan Meets Korea: visit two incredible destinations with a tailor-made tour

Not all of us like to follow other people’s itineraries, some of us love unlimited flexibility when we travel. With a tailor-made tour you can have it your way, Asia is your oyster. Our suggestion is to combine Japan and South Korea for a trip like no other.

DON’T SETTLE FOR JUST ONE AMAZING HOLIDAY in 2019

A tailor-made holiday to Japan and South Korea embodies a holiday to untapped destinations while also hitting up popular tourist hotspots. With only a 2-hour plane ride between the two destinations it is a holiday just waiting to be enjoyed. Why spend all that money for a flight half way across the world to only tap into one destination? You’d be crazy not to take advantage of the amazing countries in Asia who sit so close to each other. By visiting both Japan AND South Korea, you have two different countries with diverse landscapes to explore, different cultural traditions to soak up and of course two entirely different types of cuisine to digest.

Bamboo groves of Arashiyama, Kyoto

Japan is like nowhere else in the world and is an immensely popular country to visit. Tokyo is home to robots, gadgets and all things tech as well as quirky cafes popping up on every second street where you can taste popular local dishes such as Monjayaki, Soba noodles, Yakitori and a plethora of other delicious meals. In contrast to Japan’s futuristic qualities it’s isolated history and rich culture has enabled this unique civilisation to blossom over the years. Today it thrives in an eclectic mix of contrasting traditional and modern way of life. Ride bullet trains explore Takayama’s beautifully preserved Old Town and wander the bamboo forest in Kyoto.
