South Korea

Photo of South Korea

South Korea has cultivated a distinct identity and culture all its own which is especially evident to travellers who have visited other parts of Asia. In Seoul, visitors are invigorated with the hustle and bustle of the pro-technology capital city with its modern designs and vibrant energy. A walk through the streets of Seoul and a look at the innovation surrounding you is almost like peering into the future.

To see just how far this nation has come from the days of Chinese and Japanese attempts at domination, travellers should explore the ancient city of Gyeongju. In sharp contrast to the noise and lights of Seoul, Gyeongju leaves visitors at peace as they take in the architecture and calming silence of the ancient tombs, temples and pagodas. Or simply get away from it all and hike through the tiny villages and rice paddies of the countryside where tourism has not yet infected the country’s rich culture.
