I have seen so many mediocre write ups in media about Korea, particularly Seoul. Articles feature spots that aren’t that impressive. They promote plastic-sheened artificially manufactured tourist zones. The foods they feature create eyerolls to people who actually live here.
Not only have I noticed this. I regularly talk to travelers who were disappointed in their travels to Seoul, following some itinerary from a few blogs they read.
Don’t let that be you.
Before you plan too much, or even if you find yourself coming here on a whim, CONTACT US.
If you’re in the travel or food media, we can set you up on one of our tours at a media discount or even for free on some of them. But on top of this, we can help you find the unique places that will make your piece stand out. No tourism agency pabulum. None of the same old articles about the same old places.
You’re a traveler. Not a tourist.
The one mistake travelers on our tours and travel writers tell me they made, they told me, was not contacting us early on. We would have saved them a lot of trouble.
