If you thought fried chicken and cold beer were mostly American picnic staples, think again. During this 3.5-hour evening experience, settle in at a scenic spot by the Han River to enjoy one of Korea’s most popular snacks, referred to as ‘chimac.’ You’ll eat like a local as you savor a snack alongside city dwellers leaving the worries of the day behind. Numbers are limited to 10 people on this small-group tour to ensure a personalized experience with your friendly guide.
After hotel pickup in Seoul, board the comfortable coach for a drive to the Han River, where your casual culinary experience takes place. Join the locals at a riverside locale, where your guide will help you order chimac, one of Korea’s most beloved snack-drink combinations. This signature blend mixes the English term for fried chicken and the Korean word for beer (maekju), creating a sensation known as ‘chimac (or chimaek) fever.’ Settle in on the riverbank for a picnic-style gathering with city residents who come here to relieve stress, relax and talk over chimac — especially after a long day at work. With scrumptious fried chicken in one hand and a cold beer in the other, enjoy people-watching against the backdrop of the Han River and bustling Seoul at night. Your guide will share knowledge of the history of the Han River and its importance to Seoul and give you an insider’s perspective on Korea’s food culture, using the simple snack of chimac as a springboard. Even if this is your first visit to Seoul, this evening experience will give you a real local feel for the city and the country.
Once your appetite is stated, reboard the coach for drop-off at your hotel.
