Description

A Guided Tour of Korean Culture in VR

Experiential Learning About Fashion, Food, Music and Writing

Your guide, Janet, will walk you and your small group through an immersive and interactive educational experience where you'll dive into four different elements that make up the traditional Korean culture: Fashion, food, music, and writing. Come learn about the history of hanbok (traditional Korean clothing), the national food dish of Korea, traditional musical instruments, and learn to read and write basic Hangul by then end of your tour.

Each of the sections are paired with interactive activities that you can try in VR, so get ready to both learn and have fun doing it. Looking forward to welcoming you in Korea!
