SALEM, Ohio — HanaTour, Korea’s largest tour company for both inbound and outbound travel, has introduced a Korea Christianity Heritage Tour for religious travel groups.

Christianity in South Korea dates back to the early 17th century when Catholicism was first introduced by Korean diplomats returning home from their posts. By 1991, 44 percent of the religious population was Christian.

During this eight-day, six-night tour, visitors will see how Koreans have incorporated ancestral traditions with Christian practices to make the faith their own.

“I had the pleasure of meeting with John Park of Hanna Tour, who explained that they make sure to include examples of such traditions in their tours and that groups find the cultural differences of great interest.” said Charlie Presley of The Group Travel Family.

Some of the tour highlights include: Moon Jun Kyung Missionary Martyrdom, Jeungdo Church on Jeungdo Island in Gwangju, Clement Carrington Owen’s monument and gravesite, Woo Wool Soon Missionary’s Home, Christian Martyr Memorial Hall in Yongin and points of interest in Seoul.
