Season finale of TRAVEL GUIDES airs tonight on Nine but when will we see new episodes?


The season four finale of Travel Guides will air tonight on Nine with a wacky tour of South Korea.

The format has proved to be a huge ratings hit for the network, but the arrival of COVID-19 has understandably limited production.

The bulk of the season currently airing was filmed in 2019, before the closure of international borders.

Nine is yet to officially confirm a new season of the highly popular series, but TV Blackbox understands plans are being put in place to proceed with production on more new episodes in the near future, with a focus on domestic travel due to the ongoing Australian border closures.

In tonight’s episode, our Travel Guides take on South Korea for their wackiest holiday ever. From the exciting and vibrant city of Seoul to the quirks of the DMZ and the traditional rural regions, our Guides enjoy a wild ride through this weird and wonderful country.

The massive city of Seoul is where our Travel Guides get their first taste of South Korea.

Staying in the half-kilometre high Lotte Tower on the 92nd floor, their rooms look out over the high-rise city. The tower is part of a huge complex, featuring the world’s largest indoor theme park. Some of our Guides embrace the opportunity to go on some epic roller coasters, others are a little more hesitant.

South Koreans are very health conscious, so to join in with the locals, our Travel Guides visit a jimjilbang. Part spa, part chill-out zone these day clubs are open 24 hours a day and every type of treatment is on offer.

Just a few blocks away is the throbbing suburb of Gangnam, where our Travel Guides discover the wonders of K-Pop, which is more than Gangnam Style. Undertaking the rigours of K-Pop classes and a makeover, our Guides are ready to join the K-Pop wannabes performing in the streets.

Getting out of Seoul, just an hour north, lies the Demilitarised Zone between South Korea and its less welcoming neighbour, North Korea. One of the world’s more bizarre tourist hotspots, our Travel Guides learn more about the sad history between these two countries and take a peek at the North Korean village located just on the other side.

Travel Guides airs tonight, Wednesday June 23 at 7:3pm on Nine and 9Now
