Gastro Tour Seoul is inviting us to a city of delicacies! Located on Tae-an peninsula in Chungcheongnam-do, Seosan is actually quite famous for its gourmet foods. You may recognize the name of this location for the oil spill incident in 2007, and how many people flocked down there to help clean up the mess. There were as many as 1.2 million volunteers on the job, and the shores of Tae-an peninsula was almost completely restored in just 3 years. It is now again one of the most beautiful places you could visit in the country.

Mountain, field, and sea come together in this city well-known for its salt, reclaimed rice, clams, sweet potatoes and ginger. This summer, Seosan is particularly excited to introduce us to its cuisine and more. We hope you can join us on this exciting day trip. Please see below for the program schedule.
