Step into the hot pool to soak, followed by the sauna, then complete the rejuvenation process with a full-body scrub, oil massage, cucumber facial and shampoo by an expert practitioner.

Returns to original departure point
In the morning, your guide picks you up at your Seoul hotel and takes you to one of Seoul's fantastic Korean spas — or jjimjilbang — for your spa treatment.

The seshin (cleansing) process starts with a dip in a hot bath followed by a hands-on treatment by an experienced practitioner on staff. Feel renewed from the inside out during the sauna experience, which begins with a vigorous scrub. The ddemiri, or ‘scrub mistress,’ applies a thin, coarse towel to your skin and sloughs off layers of dead skin from your entire body, leaving your skin fresh and soft. Follow this rejuvenating process with an oil massage, cucumber face mask and shampoo.

The public indoor bathhouse is separated by gender, so you’ll find most everyone — with the exception of your guide, who waits outside — comfortably nude in the showers, pools, and sauna.

After this ritual, meet your guide for the drive back to your hotel, making a brief stop at an amethyst factory or a ginseng center for a close look at Korea’s most famous goods.

The spa experience itself was...

The spa experience itself was excellent. I did not appreciate being pressured to add on additional services when I arrived, however, Especially since trivago charged a very high price to begin with.

Tour guide rushed us the entire time...
ERIC C
, Oct 2015
Tour guide rushed us the entire time and was more concerned with getting us to the Gingseng factory than our actual Spa experience. The entire tour was only about 1-1 1/2hrs long. This tour needs to be reevaluated for time because this is not a half day Spa experience.
