First, Making Fragrant Candles

Through this tour, you can experience ‘making fragrant candles’ on Ssamji-way in Insa-dong. If you don’t want to make the fragrant candles, you can select anything you want. There are a lot of experiences and those are all ‘Hand-made’. You can make them all by yourself. Like making your own bracelets and ceramics. And for sure there are a lot of experiences more than these. And I’m gonna take photos of you so that you can keep your precious memories in Korea. I am really into taking photos of everything! So you can just count on me 

Second, Insa-dong

And then we’re going to look around Insa-dong for shopping! You can eat some street-foods like dduckbokki (Korean Food which is quite spicy for foreigners even for Koreans. But it is really delicious especially when we eat it with sundae or some kind of fried foods. You should try this.) and hodduck (Kind of Korean Snack). 

Third, Korean Traditional  Tea Cafe

After shopping, we are going to visit one Café which is located Insa-dong, too. At that café, you can experience ‘Korean Traditional Tea’ and learn the way to enjoy Korean Tea. I’m going to teach you! And I wanna let you know some ‘Tips’ when living in Korea. (Or even traveling for Korea) For example, (Very basically) ‘how to transfer’ (when you use the public transportations) and how to say or pronounce some words in Korean. (that you want to know, like some idioms)

Let’s hang out with full of experiences that you never experience in other tours!! I’ll make you feel like I am a real friend, not just a tour friend!!
