Explore Asia this Fall with Apple Tours and Travel

Korea has some incredible places to see and explore but sometimes it's nice to get out and travel other Asian lands. While the internet has made independent travel incredibly easy (and I'll be the first to admit, I love planning my own trips), sometimes it's nice to let someone else do the planning and booking and arranging for you. But in a country where English isn't exactly widely spoken, it can be difficult to find a travel agency that can cater to your needs without a language barrier.

Fortunately enough, Apple Tours and Travel, an agency affiliated with the US military's USO, is staffed with friendly English speakers who are eager to help you with your every need. From finding the best deals on airfare to creating itineraries, they pretty much take the dirty work out of traveling. With their help, there's no need to wait in long lines for visa processing or scouring the internet for hotel reviews and rankings.



One service that is particularly handy is their flight finder service, in which they utilize their partner airlines, as well as Korean flight finder sites (which usually offer better deals), to get you the best price. And what's even better is that you don't even need to be in their office to get the deals. All you have to do is e-mail them, or even shoot them a Kakao Talk message at appleuso to get a quick reply with the best rates. This is a free service for Seoul Searching readers, so be sure to mention the blog when you contact them.

In addition to booking flights, Apple Tours and Travels is constantly putting together fun 4-5 day tours. Some of the exciting destinations they offer include Cambodia, Hong Kong, China, Vietnam, Laos, Australia, Japan, Singapore and Thailand. Just let them know what dates you'd like to travel and they will take care of everything so that all you have to do is pack your bags and hop on the plane.

For those looking to save some money and travel with others, Apple Tours and Travels is hosting a number of group tours this autumn. Although the majority of the participants are American, anyone is welcome to join. Check out the tours below for more information.
