SOUTH KOREA PERSONALISED TRAVEL
South Korea, located in East Asia, constitutes the southern part of the Korean Peninsula. It is hemmed in by the Sea of Japan to the East, the Yellow Sea to the West, by the China Sea to the South, and North Korea to the North. The region offers travelers a dazzling range of experiences, beautiful landscapes and 5’000 years of culture and history.
South Korea is a dream destination – an engaging, welcoming place where the benefits of a high-tech nation are balanced alongside a reverence for tradition and the ways of old Asia. Whilst it is known as the Land of the Morning Calm, serenity is the last thing you will feel in this country, especially in its capital Seoul, which is constantly on the move with its work-hard play-hard population who prone a can-do spirit. You can barely turn a street corner without coming across a subway station or a tourist information booth in the multifaceted metropolis, which possesses the latest technological marvels. You will even find the world’ biggest indoor theme park, which has an aquarium and a mall inside it.
Although renowned for its technological advancements, South Korea has a gorgeous countryside. Thanks to its compact size and a good transport infrastructure, tranquility can be easily found. Hike to the summits of craggy mountains enclosed by densely forested national parks, sail to remote islands, hang out in cute little villages surrounded by rice fields and sleep in rustic hanok guesthouses. In the winter, some of the same mountain paths you use to walk transform into ski slopes.
South Korea is also famed for hosting plenty of festivals and events such as Boryeong’s mud fest, and Gwangju’s Biennale, as well as for its unbelievable cuisine, which is becoming increasingly popular outside of Korea. Korean food is some of the healthiest on this planet, with an emphasis on vegetables, meats cooked simply and without much oil, and a near obsession with the fermented vegetable kimchi. Koreans place great importance on the role of food as medicine, using exotic ingredients such as dried persimmon, red dates, pine seeds, chestnut and ginseng in their cooking.
