Cultural Excursions

About RASKB Cultural Excursions

The Royal Asiatic Society - Korea Branch conducts educational and fun excursions to cultural, historical and scenic spots throughout Korea, led by exceptionally knowledgeable guides.

Prices differ according to individual excursions. Due to both the popularity of our excursions and preparation requirements, we ask would-be participants to register for excursions by the deadline specified for each tour.

An RASKB member can bring 1-2  non-members as their guests on an excursion at the member's discount rate once.  Those guests pay the full non-members' rates on subsequent excursions until they become members.

Children through high school age brought on excursions are charged 75% of their parents'  rate.
