Korea Destinations: Enjoy a Discounted Temple Stay at One of 13 Locations Around South Korea

The Korean Buddhist Cultural Foundation will hold a ‘Temple Stay Program for Foreigners’ to introduce Korean traditional culture to foreigners staying in Korea through October 30 at 13 different locations around the country.

Temple stay programs take place all across the nation, designed to combine the beauty of the Korean countryside with the rich history and culture of Korea and Korean Buddhism.

There are many different experiences to be had at a temple stay, but most include a temple tour, tea time with Sunim (a Korean Buddhist monk), and a taste of temple culture.

The programs cost 30,000 won for the overnight experience.
