Blocko

The blockchain is one of those buzzwords that you constantly hear when talking about new innovations. One of the pioneers of the blockchain and the largest provider of blockchain infrastructure and services in South-Korea and China is Blocko.
Even though the company was founded less than five years ago, it already earns millions of dollars in international investments and they serve customers such as Microsoft, Amazon, EY and Samsung with the platform Coinstack.

During the International Business Tour, we will visit the office of Blocko where we will get a short introduction about the blockchain and the services of Blocko. More information about Blocko can be found via the button below.

DMZ tour

Due to all of the recent happenings, a visit to the border between North and South Korea should not be missed!

We will visit the border for one day, during a so-called DMZ (Korean Demilitarized Zone) Tour, where we will be picked up by a bus in the morning and brought to highlights such as the joint security area and the bridge of no return . During the whole day, a guide will come along with us to tell us everything we want to know about the relation between North and South Korea. This tour will offer you the unique opportunity to look out over North Korea, a chance not to be missed!

Palaces

Many palaces can be found in Seoul as they take up a large part of South-Korean histoy. During our trip we will go on a tour during which we will visit all of these palaces. We will visit Changgyeonggung Palace, Deoksugung Palace, Gyeongbokgung Palace and Gyeonghuigung Palace.

Next to the palaces, we will visit Bukchon Hanok village, a traditional Korean village. Its history includes more than six centuries. There are over 900 traditional Hanok houses in Buckchon village, some of which still have their traditional interior. Visiting this village will give us a good impression of how Koreans used to live in the past.

In the corresponding museum the history of wars in Korea is being told, with objects ranging from attributes of the battles that were won against Mongolia in the 13th century to film footage of the invasion by North Korea that took place 700 years later. Outside of the museum, a great collection of war planes, tanks and artillery are being shown.
