The first destination of Hello Korea was Seoul. Seoul welcomed the members of Hello World in beautiful weather, clear blue sky, gentle sunlight, and lush green trees. Thanks to its rich cultural and culinary experiences it has to offer, this city has become a popular destination for visitors. Recently, people travelling to Seoul have chosen more luxury and high-ranking services and facilities. Accordingly, Hello World delegation have thoroughly explored Seoul City by experiencing the Premium Skincare package at Sulwhasoo’s flagship; enjoying fine dining at Seoul’s most famous restaurants which achieved Michelin stars such as Min’s Kitchen, Bamboo House, and Samcheonggak; staying at the 5-star hotel Signiel which offered breathtaking views of spectacular Seoul City; admiring the typical traditional house Hanok at the RakKoJae Seoul; watching impressive works at Choeunsook Art & Lifestyle Gallery; and finally, wearing traditional hanbok and visiting Gyeongbokgung Palace.
Saying goodbye to the vibrant city of Seoul, Hello World team continued on to visit the peaceful and green Jeju island. Jeju has long been known as a paradise getaway with a lot of enchanting luxury resorts, one of which is the Podo Hotel and Art Villas, where guests can enjoy luxury services and best relaxation.

After arriving in Busan, the Hello World team boarded the Yacht Tale to admire the sparkling nighttime scene in Busan.
