One-Day Cultural Experience Field Trip (Summer)

This all-day field trip, included in your program fee, takes you to Namiseom Island or a visit to a Korean folk village.

Namiseom Island is a half-moon-shaped isle and is famous for its beautiful tree lined roads. “Nami” island, as it’s known, was designated a UNICEF Child Friendly Park. This was a first for Korea and only the 14th park in the world to receive such a designation.

When visiting the Korean folk village, you will be able to watch intriguing cultural performances such as nongak (farmer’s music), martial arts on horseback, and traditional ceremonies. Students can enjoy traditional rice cakes like jeungpyeon, injeolmi, bueko-gui, or pageon.
