South Korea Cruise Highlights

Temples and Palaces

South Korea is home to many palaces and temples that represent various eras and layers of religious and cultural history. Visit the Tongdosa Temple in Busan, built in the 7th century and home to several shrines and over 800 relics. Tour the Yakcheonsa Temple on Jeju Island, a sacred Buddist landmark famous for its tiered Chinese-styled roofing and the 18,000 tiny Buddha statues housed in its Dharma hall.

Mighty Mountains & Volcanic Islands

South Korea is rich in natural scenery, including beautiful mountains and volcanoes. Take a guided hike up Geumjeong Mountain near Busan to the intricate Beomesa Temple and even further up to Geumjeong Fortress. Go step-by-step across the thrilling glass-bottomed Oryukdo Skywalk, cantilevered over the cliff for breathtaking views of Oryukdo, created by powerful volcanic eruptions over 80 million years ago.

Beaches & Fishing Villages

South Korea’s coastline is known for its blissful beaches, where you’ll find soft sand and buzzing beach bars. The shores of South Korea are also home to a number of fishing villages that give you a taste—both literally and figuratively—of why the sea is important to South Korea’s economy. Enjoy the beautiful white sand and calm surf at Gwakji Beach on Jeju Island, or the busy and bustling Haeundae Beach in Busan.
