Highlights of South Korea - from Seoul to Seoraksan

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, yet with a firm eye on it's 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. 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.
