Instead of lying on a crowded beach and sipping overpriced fruity cocktails this summer, why not seek out true relaxation with a journey to the Far East in search of inner peace? Korean Air, in partnership with Hanjin Travel, is letting foreigners for the first time enter the sacred world of Buddhist monastic life in Seoul through new "Templestay" tours, where guests can get in touch with their true selves and achieve peace of mind with a little help from the local monks.
