Holidaymakers looking for a taste of South Korea might be interested in a new range of cultural trips from On the Go.

The tour company has constructed a number of package holidays that give Brits the chance to soak up the plethora of cultural events and attractions the nation has to offer.

The Jarasum Jazz Festival tour is a five-day excursion from September 30th and offers travellers the chance to check out the 8th annual Jarasum International Jazz Festival in Gapyeong.

Meanwhile, those who wish to explore the cultural hotspots of Andong and Gyeongju could be interested in the six-day Seoul and Silla Kingdom trip, which costs from £1,149.

Holidaymakers with a bit more cash to spend on a special experience might prefer the 12-day Spectacular South Korea tour.

At £2,299, it is not cheap, but visitors will be treated to a spectacular journey through the country, where they can take in the tea plantations of Spectacular South Korea, the hustle and bustle of Busan, the ancient sites of Gyeongju, Namhae 'Treasure Island' and the mountains of Seoraksan.
