night in:

Seoul

12:00 transfer with guide: Incheon Airport-Seoul

16:00 Seoul city tour

This entertaining and informative tour combines walking experience with transportation by our bus/mini-van. You will see:

  • The geographical centre and the highest point of today's Seoul, N-Tower; the tower has become not only a must-see for every visitor of the Korean capital, but also a kind of romantic mecca for couples; perharps, this is the reason why it is more crowded in romantic evenings than in the prosaic light of the day? For groups 1-3 persons N-Tower is replaced with Bugak Sky Way
  • Next, we are going to see a symbiosis of urban landscape archetecture and nature, the Cheonggyecheon stream; there is hardly any piece in this astonishly naturally looking stream, which was not touched or brought by man - the bed of the stream, the banks, the water itself is broght here by pumps...
  • We are going now to the so-called Souvenir Street, Insadong; there you are able to see the vivid street life of Seoul
  • The tour continues to a royal palace, Here our professional guide will introduce to you the palace culture and architecture, the customs of th e royal family, the symbolic meaning of the material attributes of the palace.
  • And of course, the youth fashion and culture district Myeong-dong, a place of pilgrimage for shoppers from all over the globe, shall be a delightful contribution to the programme.

Attention!

  • Due to traffice jams, there may be minor changes in the programme.
  • The tour finishes at the hotel, where the tour started, unless otherwise specified.

09:00 Hwasong Fortress (UNESCO heritage), Royal Tombs, and traditional Korean Bath

Hwasong Fortress was first built in 1794-1796. This is the first Korean fortress designed and constucted using European technology. The king Jeongjo planned to move the capital of Korea here once, but due to his early death his dream did not fulfill.

The palace was built inside the fortress to accomodate the king when he visited the city of Suwon/the fortress.

A walking tour of the fortress and the auxiliary king's palace Haenggung will cover about 6-7 km.

This tour also includes visiting Royal Tombs of the Chosun Dynasty, where Jeongjo and his farther, Crown Prince Sado are buried.

After the tour we are going to relax in a traditional Korean bath house!

15:00 Strawberries!

Экскурсия на клубничную плантацию, где вы сможете не только сами собрать клубнику и взять ее с собой (ок. 500 гр), но и изговтовить джем либо мороженное из клубники (зависит от сезона). Экскурсия займет около двух часов.

Танян

Танян (단양/丹陽) - буквально, "красное солнце" или "красная сила ян" - живописный район в провинции Северная Чхунчхон, прославившийся своими "Восемью видами Таняна" - необычайно живописными местами, расположенными вдоль течения Южного Хангана, популярными у чосонской аристократии, а также и в настоящее время.

山明楓葉水明沙

三島斜陽帶晩霞

爲泊仙橫翠壁

待看星月湧金波

Красными клёнами - горы светлы, виден песок на дне

Три скалы, что в речке стоят, вечернего солнца свет...

Плот отшельника над изумрудом вод застыл неподвижно, ждет

Звезд и месяца свет золотой дорожкой бежит ко мне

И Хван (Тхвеге)

Из "восьми видов" мы с вами насладимся следующими красотами: 

  • Тодамсамбон - (도담삼봉/島潭三峰) - буквально, "три скалы-оставка в глубокой воде" - место, воспетое в стихах и картинах знаменитых корейских поэтов, мыслителей и художников - Ли Хвана, Ким Чжонхи, Ким Хондона, И Пануна; с этим местом связана легенда об уроженце Таняна, Чон Дочжоне - одном из основателей государства Чосон.
  • Сокмун - 석문/石門 - буквально, "каменные ворота". Это большая каменная арка, расположенная также на берегу реки Южный Ханган.
  • Оксунбон - 옥순봉/玉筍峰 - буквально, "Вершина "Нефритовые ростки бамбука". Вообще-то, Оксунбун расположен в уезде Чечхон, а не Танян; в свое время знаменитый И Хван (см. 1000-воновую купюру) просил отнести его к округу Танян; но получил отказ...
  • Кудамбон - 구담봉/龜潭峰 - буквально, "скала-черепаха в глубокой воде"

Причем, 2 из них - во время прогулки на кораблике по реке Ханган...

В Таняне нас ждет традиционный корейский обед, включенный в программу тура.

Деревня Хахве

Далее мы отправляемся в провинцию Северная Кёнсан, округ Андон, в деревню Хахве, ставшим одним из объектов Всемирного наследия ЮНЕСКО.

Хахве - деревня, с трех сторон окруженная рекой Нактонган, как бы расположена в петле этой реки; от этой географической особенности и происходит название деревни - буквально "пятля реки".

Хахве знаменита своими сохранившимися и до сих пор используемыми хозяевами старинными домами - как крестьянскими, так и домами аристократов; знаменитым танцем с масками "Тхальчхум", а также и древнейшим сохранившимся набором этих самых деревянных масок для танцев. В 1999 году королева Великобритании Елизавета отметила в деревне свой день Рождения.

Регулярное представление танца с масками будет приятным живым дополнением к экскурсии (представление может не проводиться в данный день, в зависимости от сезона и дня недели).

Сегодня мы ночуем в традиционном корейском доме, на полу.

Одеяла (футоны) предоставляются.
