SINGAPORE - It was a cosy Christmas season for Prime Minister Lee Hsien Loong and his wife Ho Ching, as they took time off managing state affairs for some down time in Seoul last December.

Of course they never really went off-the-grid; peppering their social media accounts with snippets of their travel shots.

For those who have followed their journey through kimchi-land, here's a piece of good news.

Travel agency ASA Holidays has launched an itinerary named "Following PM's foot trail" - which retraces the sites and attractions the couple visited.

Visitors on the nine-day trip will depart from Singapore on Nov 26 and will get to stop by highlights such as Sokcho Central Market, DMZ Museum and Namae Hang Sky Walk.

The tour package, offers chartered flights with two airlines; Singapore Airlines and SilkAir. 

The cost of the tour starts from $1,838 per person and varies depending on the airline selected.

The tour package which was released over a week ago, has been snapped up pretty quickly, ASA Holidays spokesman Mr Ristanio Arfando Aripin told AsiaOne in an interview.

This is the first tour of its kind that ASA Holidays has launched. Mr Ristanio added that it was Chinese Daily Lianhe Wanbao who first approached the agency to broach the possibility of retracing the itinerary.

So if you're up for going on a photography hunt on the scenic trails at Mount Seorak National Park like PM Lee or penning reflective poems of pagodas and museums like Ms Ho, this is one tour you could consider signing up for.
