During my visit to South Korea on October 5 to 13, 2017, I had the pleasure of going with my family on a guided tour from Hanatour. We explored Seoul, and then traveled to the western part of Korea and to Jeju Island.

Below is the itinerary that we followed.

  • October 5 to 6: Seoul (서울)
  • October 7: Gongju (공주시) – Daejeon (대전)
  • October 8: Jeongju (전주시) – Jinan (진안군) – Gwangju (광주시)
  • October 9: Boseong (보성군) – Suncheon (순천시) – Yeosu (여수시)
  • October 10: Yeosu (여수시) – Jinju (진주시)
  • October 11 to 13: Jeju Island (제주도)
