Enveloped by mountains, this giant metropolis is an exciting jumble of futuristic skyscrapers, castles and temples, with the ever-present backdrop of the many surrounding peaks. From young and funky districts where progressive art and cutting-edge fashion are to be found on every street, to historic areas where cobbled streets lead to ancient temples, Seoul has one foot planted in the past, and the other stretched eagerly into the future. This is a city that comes alive at night, with its incredible food scene, dazzling neon lights, and a social “bang” (room) to suit every taste, from quirky karaoke bars to a thriving café scene.

This afternoon, your journey begins with a visit to Yoido Yunjungro Road, one of South Korea’s most beloved cherry blossom viewing spots. As you stroll along this picturesque avenue during the blooming season, you’ll be engulfed by the enchanting beauty of countless cherry blossoms in full bloom.

Day 3 – DMZ

Today you will venture to the Demilitarized Zone (DMZ) in South Korea which is quite an eye-opening experience, blending historical significance with a stark reminder of the ongoing conflict on the Korean Peninsula. With an early departure from Seoul, your first stop is at Imjingak Park, where you will see various war memorials and the Freedom Bridge. Your journey continues to the Third Infiltration Tunnel, an underground passage built by North Korea for a potential invasion, where guests can walk part of the tunnel while learning about its history. Depending on current restrictions at the DMZ, it may be possible to visit the Dora Observatory, providing a rare glimpse into North Korean territory and key landmarks through binoculars. Another highlight is the Dorasan Station, the last railway station before the border, symbolising hopes for future reunification. The experience is deeply enriched by expert guides who share detailed insights and stories, making the DMZ tour not only an educational excursion but also a poignant reflection on peace and division.

Return to Seoul where you will visit Jogyesa Temple which is the chief temple of the Jogye Order of Korean Buddhism – Jogyesa is a spiritual oasis amidst the bustling city.

Gyeongju often called the “Museum Without Walls,” is a city in South Korea known for its rich cultural and historical heritage. Once the capital of the ancient Silla Kingdom, Gyeongju boasts ancient temples, palaces, burial mounds, and artefacts. Today, you focus on the best locations for cherry blossom viewing.

Day 9 – DMZ

This morning you will drive approximately 3 hours towards South Korea, the destination today is the DMZ.

Visit the significant sights including the location where the armistice was signed and of course, overlook Freedom House and the famed blue buildings. Wave to the tourists on the South Korean side from across the border.

From here, visit the Koryo Museum in the city of Kaesong which was one of the first universities in North Korea (Confucian University). You will also visit a stamp shop where a variety of books and colourful postage stamp collections depicting the people, feats and countryside of North Korea can be purchased.

Following lunch, you will drive out of Kaesong and through the countryside to the lookout bunker over the DMZ which looks at the Concrete Wall separating North and South Korea. The North Koreans believe there is a wall dividing the two Koreas across the peninsula, 247km long, 5-8m high and 2m underground. From the South Korean side, the wall cannot be seen as it is slanted and overgrown with fauna. The North Koreans believe they face a concrete wall. Have a look through the binoculars and decide for yourself what you believe you are seeing.

Day 10 – Pyongyang

This morning following breakfast in your hotel, depart for the Grand People’s Study House. This is one of the most recognised buildings in Pyongyang and is also the largest library in the country. Spanning 10 storeys and over 100,000 sqm, this impressive structure is bursting with over 30 million books and can accommodate over 10,000 people a day.

The library was opened as the ‘centre for the project of intellectualising the whole of society and a sanctuary of learning for the entire people’ and was built to honour Kim Il Sung’s 70th birthday.

Be guided by a local guide through many of the rooms of this grand building. You will have some time to explore the shelves and see what sorts of books you can discover! There are many lecture rooms, and you may have the chance to speak to the students in one if the class is in. Head to the 6th-floor balcony where you can set foot where the Leader has stood and take in impressive 180-degree views over the river and beyond.

Continuing on, you will have a stop at the Foreign Language Book Store where you can purchase books on the Leader’s works and various North Korean folk stories and history.

If the weather is clear, head to Ryonggak Mountain for views over the city. A gentle walk is required here on a paved path. Weather dependent, you may either have a picnic lunch on the mountaintop or venture back into town for a hotpot lunch. You certainly will not go hungry in North Korea!

Following lunch, with full bellies, it’s time to walk it off through beautiful parklands as you visit Mangyongdae Native House. This is the original home of the Dear Leader, Kim Il Sung. Learn of his family’s history and shortcomings.

Now it’s time for some fun as you head onto Pyongyang’s mysterious yet beautiful metro system – the deepest in the world at 110m underground, it was also designed to double as a bunker. One of the most restricted transitways in the world, the stations are incredibly beautiful with intricate mosaic designs, elaborate chandeliers and gilded statues. Each station has a theme of goals and achievements and revolutionary history to share with commuters. Jump on the metro and travel with the locals as you experience this underground world.

Resurface to street level and take a stroll along the Taedong River embankment in central Pyongyang and make your way towards the local bowling alley. Grab a ball, slip on some flat shoes and play a round of bowling alongside the locals!

Day 12 – Mt Kumgang

Follow the coastal road from Wonson to Mt Kumgang. Pass fishing towns, deserted beaches with crystal water and local fisherman in their wooden boats bobbing in the water. The scenery will continue to change as you edge closer to the national park. Mt Kungang area was originally constructed by Mr Hyundai from South Korea and up until 2008, South Koreans were able to holiday at this stunning location where the mountains meet the sea.

Visit Samil Lagoon, a popular, tranquil place for locals in the summer to come for picnics and row out to the small pavilion in the centre. Towering boulders loom overhead amongst the pines and the quietness of the lagoon makes you feel a world away.

Following lunch, enjoy a hike on a sealed path through the national park to Nine Dragons Waterfall. Breathe in the fresh mountain air and soak in the untouched beauty. The colour and clarity of the water is impressive. The sheer mountainscape provides some shade for solace from the sun. The hike is approx 1.5 hours each way.

On your way back to your hotel, visit the Singye Buddhist Temple. This temple was completely destroyed in the Korean War. It was restored in 2004 as part of an inter-Korea cultural project.

Lunch today will be in a local restaurant. The drive back to Pyongyang is approx 3 hours.

On arrival back into the city, you will visit a local supermarket. This is the only place in North Korea where foreigners can use local currency.

Day 14 – Day of the Sun

Today, being the Day of the Sun, your sightseeing may be a little out of order to make the most of the local celebrations and festivities.

This morning, visit Fountain Park which acts as a recreation and relaxation zone for the locals. It will be busy today being a public holiday!

From here, you will visit Mansudae Grand Monument. Larger than life, here stand the famed bronze statues of the Dear Leader, Kim Il Sung and the Great Leader, Kim Jong Il. Lay your fresh flowers at the feet of the leader and follow your guide for how to bow to the Leaders. Be blown away by the sheer size of these statues. Photos are certainly permitted but you must ensure both leaders are in the frame and none of their body parts are cropped. The bronze statues are the most respected site in any city – cars driving by slow down to 30km/hr as a sign of respect.

It is the time to visit Juche Tower. The tower was built to support the Juche ideology which was introduced by the country’s first leader Kim Il Sung. The torch at the top is always lit (by LED lights) and at the base are three statues signifying the Workers Party (the only party in the North Korean Government). Juche, or self-reliance, created by Dear Leader Kim Il Sung, is a revolutionary thought process. It means that man is the master of his destiny so as a nation that follows Juche, it elaborates to being a master of revolution, this means that by being self-reliant and a strong nation, the country can achieve true socialism.

Lunch today is in a local restaurant before continuing on to Moranbong Park where you will go for a stroll with your guides. This is a park where locals hang out for picnics and to relax with friends and family. Some remains of the former walls which formally surrounded Pyongyang can also be seen here. There will be lots of celebrations as the locals celebrate Dear Leader’s birthday.

The Monument to Party Foundation is up next. Erected in 1995, at a height of 50m, this monument conveys the proud history of the Workers’ Party of North Korea comprised of workers, farmers and intellectuals. The monument depicts the hammer, sickle and brush seized by a worker, a farmer and an intellectual. The round belt signifies the single-hearted unity of the Leader, Party and people.

Continue on to visit the Kimilsungia & Kimjongillia Flower Exhibition. This hall hosts the International Kimilsungia and Kimjongilia Festivals which focus exclusively on two flowers; the Kimilsungia and the Kimjongilia, named after Kim Il Sung and Kim Jong Il respectively. The latter was bred by an Indonesian botanist and the latter by a Japanese one then presented as gifts to the DPRK.

Today is your chance to experience a mass dance as part of the Day of the Sun celebrations. There will be other rarely-seen activities performed throughout the day as the nation celebrates the birthday of its first leader, Kim Il Sung. This experience will be unlike anything else.

Your farewell dinner this evening is a traditional duck BBQ dinner known locally as Bulgogi.
