Know More about this tour

After pick up from downtown Seoul (3 subway stations, Hongik Univ., Meyongdong, Dongdaemun History & Culture Park), we will visit Yeongdonggun about 2.5 hours away from Seoul. Yeongdonggun is famous for the place where Nangye Park Yeon, a brilliant musician and music theorist in the early Joseon period, was born. So it provides tourists with various music experience. This area is also famous for grape so that there is the biggest winery in Korea, Wine Korea.

We will start with a wine foot spa in Wine Korea and then visit Chupungyeong deer farm. After enjoying your bibimbap lunch, we will visitYeong Dong Korean Classical Music Experience Village. You will make a Janggu and enjoy Korean traditional music performance. The Janggu is the most representative traditional drum in Korea. It consists of an hourglass shaped body with two heads made from animal skin. The two heads produce sounds of different pitch and timbre which when played together are believed to represent the harmony of man and woman.
Instead of making Janggu, you may experience Nanta. While beating drums to the rhythm, you will release your stress.

    I really enjoyed this trip because it was so different from other offerings that I have found for Seoul. This trip took us to Yeongdong, where we had wine and a delicious lunch made with locally grown vegetables, followed by a relaxing foot soak that uses red wine. It was a national holiday when we visited and these businesses opened for us, so I really appreciated the welcome. The highlight of this trip would be the music activities afterwards. We had an instructor that went over how traditional instruments were made, showed us a variety of janggu and then helped us put one together. Then, we went to a traditional music academy where we got to pick an instrument to try. We ended up picking the gayageum - a string instrument - and got an instructor that taught us how to play a simple tune on it. That was really fun and the instructor also played a ballad about the story of Chunhyang for us. The day ended with a very enjoyable and energetic show by a traditional music ensemble. Special props to our guide, Jerry, who made this tour work even though it was a holiday and got us through that crazy traffic!
