Why South Korea?

South Korea is filled with mesmerising landscapes and a culture that mixes both ancient and modern

This welcoming country, known as the Land of the Morning Calm for its impressive mountain ranges and tranquil valleys, is now renowned worldwide for its technological know-how. Situated on the southern half of the Korean peninsula with China across the sea to the west and Japan to the southeast, South Korea is a beautiful country with a rich history and culture. Following the end of the Korean War, when it was left destitute and a recipient of foreign aid, South Korea began a process of economic development on such a scale that it has now become one of the 20 largest economies in the world. This massive growth in industrialisation sees the new tower blocks, highways and shopping malls, interspersed with traditional parks, ancient temples and local markets. Discover majestic mountain ranges, perfect for winter sports, and relax on glorious sand beaches dotted around the surrounding islands. Explore historic sites and temples, sample local street food and traditional tasty delicacies, and pamper yourself in Jjimjilbang, a Korean bathhouse for a perfect South Korean experience!
