One of the many things we were pleasantly surprised to find out once moving to Ulsan was that the Metropolitan Office Of Education routinely puts together free cultural tours of Korea for the foreign teachers. This was not anything promised in our contracts or required, just something they do to help us more easily learn about the history and culture of Korea and it’s people. We try to go on as many of the trips as possible as it provides a great experience to learn about Korean culture, hang out with friends and meet new ones and share experiences together. The trips are always well put together, fun and informative and the generosity of the UMOE always amazes us.
Here is a video I put together of the first trip we took. This is part 1 of 2 and in this video we make a traditional Korean Mask and visit a traditional Korean Paper Factory. Enjoy!
