For most travellers food is a major part of their travelling plans and for some the main attraction of their visit to a foreign country.   A few years ago a survey conducted on travellers departing Korea at Incheon International Airport proved that ‘food’ was the number one reason foreign tourists visit Korea.

Whether you wish to discover and enjoy the local cuisine, try gourmet delights, learn how to cook the Korean traditional cuisine or just have fun trying the great variety of street foods O’ngo Food Tours and Korean Cooking School will not only help you to gain a better understanding of Korean cuisine but also give you a glimpse into Korean culture and lifestyle.

O’ngo Food Tours have become very popular through Tripadvisor recommendations of past travellers.  O’ngo Food Tours and Korean Cooking School is now listed as number one tour to enjoy while in Seoul above twenty-three other tours.  The highly popular culinary tours can be arranged privately or in groups and offer travellers memorable Korean food and cultural experiences.

In Seoul you can join O’ngo’s most popular four hour Night Dining tour, taking in the sights of Seoul along the way eating and exploring Korean cuisine and culture at the cost of 88,000 Korean won (approx. A$88.00) per person.  There is also a 2.5 hour daytime tour taking you to the street stalls and restaurants in Insa-doing as well as the chance to taste a variety of Korean foods from spicy rice cake, Korean BBQ and savoury pancakes.

You can also join the Fish Market Tour which will take you to the famous Noryangin, Seoul’s largest wholesale fish market.  You’ll get an introduction to Korean seafood and then pick out fish and seafood for a delicious meal at a restaurant.

The company also organises trips for serious foodies to major food destinations outside of Seoul such as Chuncheon, Jeonju and Jeju Island.  A day tour to Jeonju, the food capital of Korea picks you up at your hotel in Seoul at 7am and takes you by bus to Jeonju (3hrs) where you visit the 400 year old hanok village and try the famous noodle soup and dumplings.  In Jeonju you visit a famous tea house, explore local temples and palaces and along the way try a lot of the local specialities.  The most famous Jeonju dish of all is one of Korea’s most popular dishes.  A mixture of steamed rice and many vegetables and sometimes a little beef with a fried egg on top which you mix with the special red pepper sauce is loved by Koreans and foreigners alike.  The tour also visits a rice wine centre as well as a traditional market.  The Jeonju day tour costs approximately 350,000 Korean won (approx. A$350) minimum two persons.  You can upgrade and stay overnight in Jeonju if you wish in a Korean traditional house (an extra 150,000 Korean won - approx. A$150.00 for two with breakfast).
