The Republic of Korea - commonly known as South Korea, is a captivating land which is often sadly over looked due to the roguish behaviour and reputation of neighbouring North Korea. South Korea is a land of exceptional natural beauty, steeped in history, age old traditions, religion and culture. Boasting vibrant, modern cities, enchanting ancient sites, Buddhist temples and mouth wateringly delectable cuisine!
For a small country, the picturesque landscape of South Korea is surprisingly diverse, from the towering granite peaks and lush green valleys of Seoraksan National Park, to endless glistening rice paddy fields, rugged mountainous ski resorts, sandy beaches and beautiful offshore islands such as volcanic Jeju Island.
The heart and soul of the nation is Seoul, the captivating 600 year old capital city which is busy reinventing itself as an energetic, high tech metropolis, embracing all that is modern whilst taking pride in its past, with several historic palaces, temples and its ancient city walls. In the south, the cultural capital is undoubtedly Gyeongju - dating back to 56 BC, it is known as ‘the museum without walls’ due to its wealth of historic sites including the World Heritage Listed Seokguram Grotto and Bulguksa Temple.
