In April, the Husband and I went to Korea as part of our honeymoon trip. Due to the language barrier, we opt to join a 6 Day 5 Night tour for $299 + tax. The tour includes all the food and hotel, but it doesn’t include flight.
Our tour included going to:
- Namisum Island
- DMZ (Demilitarized Zone)
- Mount Seoraksan National Park
- Royal Palace
- Blue House
- Kimchi Tour
- Lotte World
- Seoul Tower
When enter Korea, the immigration took our pictures and fingerprints. I wasn’t sure if our tour guide was joking or not, but she told us that the reason why Korea took people’s fingerprints was due to plastic surgery. She said that Korea is very famous for plastic surgery, so when people leave the country, they want to make sure that it is the same person that entered the country, so they need to take both the picture and the fingerprints to verify people’s identity. I guess that makes sense?
Anyway, onto my Korea trip and pictures:
