Beyond the Hallyu wave, its booming beauty industry and one of the world’s most technologically advanced capitals, South Korea’s rich tradition, old-style villages and array of natural sights are also huge draws. Get more out of your customised holiday to South Korea with our range of immersive luxury experiences not found in typical travel itineraries.
In Seoul, go beyond visiting iconic attractions and partake in local culture by learning how to perform parts of the hit Korean comedy show, NANTA, as a family, and joining in the frenetic excitement at a Kpop concert, where Quotient can aid in securing even hard-to-get tickets.
Over in Jeju, bask in glorious nature and enjoy an idyllic island vacation with stunning beaches and waterfalls. You’ll be inevitably drawn to visit scenic spots featured in blockbuster Korean dramas, and to indulge in premium organic teas and “Korean medicine” cuisine.
On your customised holiday to South Korea, definitely fuel up with a taste of some of the 250 types of kimchi on offer in the country and have a go at authentic kimchi-making so you can replicate the delicious banchan at home when your appetite calls. While you’re besotted with the cuisine, it only makes sense to savour the best on offer with a specially arranged royal dining experience, which can be perfectly rounded-off with a tasting of South Korea’s homegrown liquors.
NEW: Vaccinated Travel Lane – Singapore South Korea Travel Bubble
From 15th November 2021, fully vaccinated travellers to and from Singapore can travel without having to undergo quarantine under the Vaccinated Travel Lane (VTL) initiative. Among the VTL conditions, travellers must have been vaccinated for at least two weeks, travel on a designated VTL flight, have remained in South Korea or Singapore for 14 consecutive days, and take two Covid-19 PCR tests (within 48 hours of departing for Singapore and on arrival in Singapore).
Note that travellers from Singapore tapping the VTL arrangement have to have been vaccinated in Singapore and are required to test negative for COVID-19 (PCR) prior to leaving for South Korea (within 72 hours of departure), on arrival at Incheon Airport (pre-booked) and on day 6 or 7 for stays longer than 8 days. Travel insurance with a minimum coverage of 30 million won (approx. S$34,000) for COVID-19 related medical treatment and hospitalisation is required; a Korea Electronic Travel Authorization (K-ETA) is also mandatory (except for APEC card holders).
Unvaccinated children aged 5 years and below are permitted to travel to South Korea under the VTL accompanied by a vaccinated adult; those aged 6 years and above may enter Korea but are subjected a 10-day quarantine.
For further information, please refer to the Immigration & Checkpoints Authority’s VTL guide and the information page of the Embassy of the Republic of Korea to the Republic of Singapore.
