Journey Overview

This unique journey visits two of Asia’s most surprising destinations. Both South Korea and Taiwan are relative newcomers to the luxury travel scene with a host of fascinating natural and cultural highlights. South Korea is a surprise package known as much for its street food and high speed internet as it is for its heavily militarised border while Taiwan does night markets and electronics like no other country on earth. From hip and edgy Seoul where new meets old and pop culture is alive and well to a museum housing the world’s largest repository of Chinese art in Taipei, uncover absorbing local customs, flavoursome culinary delights and picturesque scenery.
