IMK’s Secret Travel Guide to South Korea
In this month’s box, the item we’re excited about the most is our own Secret Travel Guide to South Korea! We put together a brilliant team of our existing writers, designers and illustrators and worked across countries and timezones in order to produce this beautiful and informative pocket sized travel guide.
Full of hidden gems within bustling cities to stunning sights in little known towns, this travel guide is meant to show our subscribers all the things that make Korea a unique and magical place. The guide also includes fun facts about locations, Korean food guides, quizzes and even a language section where you can learn some handy Korean phrases that’ll help you out while travelling!
We loved every second that went into making this guide, and we hope you’ll enjoy reading it when you receive it in our July Travel Box!
