Car convoy in South Korea

Car convoy in South Korea

If you want to see the Hallyu land in a different way but still cherish the security of group travelling, why not join a car convoy on your next trip to South Korea?

Self-driving is one of the best ways to catch an authentic glimpse of the peninsula.

More travellers there are opting for an Autoventure tour - essentially a driving vacation - with the Automobile Association of Singapore (AAS) to inject more adventure and fun into their holiday.

An autoventure tour can take you to places that you won't see on a tour bus or on your own. In just 10 days, it is possible to visit just as many destinations within the span of South Korea.

Coastal views and historic sites

Drive along some of the most awe-inspiring bridges in South Korea; these engineering feats also give far-reaching coastal views. The 8.2km-long Geoga Bridge links the port city of Busan to Geoje Island and you can drive across it in just 50 minutes.

The bridge itself is made up of a sea-level cable-stayed bridge, an undersea tunnel and a ground tunnel. Driving on the open bridge, you can appreciate the seaside sceneries and towns, and sparkly waters.

Another technological inspiration, the Incheon Bridge - the longest and largest in Korea - links Yeongjongdo island, where Incheon International Airport is, to Songdo International City.

You cannot help but marvel at the tall towers and cables holding up the seemingly infinitely long bridge and the surrounding stretches of mud flats with its bird life.

Whizz by the Saemangeum reclamation project off Korea's west coast.

At 33.9km long, it was certified by the Guinness World Records in 2010 as the longest manmade seawall in the world, and is at least 1.7 times the size of Singapore. A world-class complex is slated for development on this newly reclaimed land, integrating industries, tourism and the environment.

Andong - home to Confucianism in Korea - also makes for a worthy pit stop.
