Invest KOREA cordially invites you to ‘Get to Know Korea 2017’, in which valued members of Korea’s foreign business community and their families can indulge in Korea’s rich history and culture.
This year’s Get to Know Korea will be held at Jinkwansa, a Buddhist temple in Seoul that boasts a long history of over 1,000 years. Staying at the Korean traditional Buddhist temple, you will experience true temple life and learn about the culture and spiritual practices of Korean Buddhism. The one-day program includes a temple tour that gives a glimpse into Buddhist etiquette and teachings as well as the daily routine of monks. Through dadam, a conversation session with monks, you will have an opportunity for self-reflection based on the Buddhist wisdom.
In the later part of the program, you will visit Eunpyeong Hanok Village and Hanok Museum, where you will be able to enjoy the beautiful scenery of Korean traditional houses and gain insights into your life.
