Come join us for a Korean Temple Stay at Beomeosa Buddhist Temple (범어사) located in a gorgeous mountain setting just outside of Busan, South Korea. For years I had dreamed of experiencing a Korea Temple Stay; however, while living in Korea I always put it off thinking I'll do it next week. Fortunately, on this most recent trip back to South Korea I had a chance to finally do an overnight immersive temple stay.
Our program included Buddhist temple Korean food (dinner and breakfast); lectures on Buddhist practices, rules and history; meditation and bowing; a complete tour of the temple grounds and drumming ceremony. All in all this Korean Temple Stay was a total immersive experience and something I'll never forget. It was such an enlightening and tranquil experience I would honestly do it again if I have the chance.
If you're visiting South Korea and you're looking to do something unique and non-touristy consider doing a temple stay program where you can visit this temple or another one located in various locations across the country. For more information check out this site:
Thank you to KTO for making this trip possible.

Korean Temple Stay at Beomeosa Buddhist Temple (범어사) in Busan, South Korea
Hey guys! We are Samuel and Audrey, a vlogging travel couple from Canada. In this travel channel we share our travel and food vlogs while touring the world.
Our most recent trip was to South Korea where I embarked upon a two-week adventure without Audrey. Invited as part of a YouTube vlogging trip, organized by KTO, I spent the first week traveling with other YouTubers in Seoul, Busan and Gyeongju. My second week included independent exploration of Korea with my good friend and fellow YouTuber David of DavidsBeenHere.
Having lived and traveled in South Korea, the chance to return to one of my favorite countries was one of the biggest surprises of 2019. On this particular trip, I had an opportunity to do many things I had not previously covered including a visit to the DMZ (Demilitarized Zone between South Korea and North Korea), a Buddhist Temple Stay and a Korean cooking class. It was almost as if the program designed by KTO knew exactly what I had missed out on before.
Obviously, a huge highlight from the two weeks I spent revisiting Korea was the food. I feasted on all of my favorite Korean dishes including Korean barbecue, dolsot bibimbap, haemul pajeon, tteokbokki, bulgogi, kimbap and many others. I can honestly say that Korean food is world-class and is one of my top 5 favorite cuisines in the world. Aside from trying familiar dishes, I had the opportunity to sample raw Korean seafood for the first time.
While visiting Seoul, highlights included going to Gyeongbokgung Palace, Namsan Seoul Tower, Jogyesa Temple and Hongdae. As one of the biggest cities in the world, I barely scratched the surface of things to do in Seoul.
Spending extended time in Busan was my favorite part about the trip with top highlights including a Korean temple stay, fresh fish markets and a Korean baseball game. It was from Busan that we ended up taking a day-trip to Daegu where we enjoyed a traditional Korean market and tried Galbi-Jjim for the first time.
