Introducing South Korea

South Korea vacations offer a fascinating fusion of modern and traditional; in this nation, the newest technology coexists with ancient landmarks and traditional civilizations. South Korea has a history that dates back half a million years. It is a country full of romantic tales, landmarks, magnificent vistas, and bustling modern cities. Most cities now have a trendy sector with coffee houses and karaoke bars, but these same cities maintain the traditional Korea—alleyways and street marketplaces that are fascinating, as sellers trade products, as they have been doing for many generations.

Top Locations in South Korea

Mount Seorak
The Taebaek Mountain Range, which is found in the north-eastern part of South Korea, features Seoraksan, also known as Mount Seorak. Many people believe it to be South Korea's most picturesque mountain alongside being the third highest in the country. Mt Seorak National Park is a staggeringly beautiful region with several high peaks (28 to be exact) and rocky cliffs. Seoraksan is a well-known mountain in South Korea and an all-year attraction for trekking in the summer to the vivid flora in the autumn as the leaves change colour. It has an amazing assortment of rock arches, waterfalls, and scented pine forests. Seoraksan is also a UNESCO Biosphere Reserve and home to numerous endangered plant and animal species.
The Demilitarised zone
The Demilitarized Zone, or DMZ, is a 250km long, 4km wide, highly mined, and guarded area that divides North and South Korea. The DMZ, a permanent reminder of the Cold War, is now a unique tourist destination on both sides of the border.
Gyeongbokgung Palace
One of Seoul's must-see sites is Gyeongbokgung Palace, which is situated north of Gwanghwamun Square. Gyeongbokgung, sometimes referred to as Gyeongbok Palace, was constructed in 1395 and is the largest of the Five Palaces constructed in Seoul during the Joseon Dynasty. Gyeongbokgung Palace is well-known for its historic structures and medieval gardens, as well as the twice-daily royal changing of the guard that happens at 10am and 2pm.
