The best places to visit in South Korea

Highly sophisticated, cutting edge, and home to a booming technology industry. However, it also has a long and turbulent past, with North Korea serving as a politically unstable neighbor and the tightly guarded Demilitarized Zone serving as a buffer between the two belligerent countries. Unique and fascinating is South Korea. And for your travel inspiration, here are the top attractions and lesser-known treasures of a trip to the nation!

Seoul

Where the bright lights of the future meet relics of the past. Traditional temples and ancient ruins hide within the bustling streets of Seoul. Seoul is also a '24 hour city' that never sleeps. From the bars of Hongdae to the shops of Gangnam and the developed banks of the Han river, you'll never run out of things to do.

The DMZ

A buffer zone between North and South Korea that has become a de facto nature reserve. A walking tour to a stretch of the DMZ yields uniformed soldiers, memorials to the victims of the 1950 - 1953 Korean War and an observatory where you can peek into the reclusive North.

Jeju Island

Lying off the south coast of the Korean peninsula and home to a unique layer of South Korean culture, Jeju is an island getaway like no other. Head towards its idyllic beaches, mountain hikes, and unrivalled views. Jeju was voted one of the New Seven Wonders of Nature - let us help you find out why!

Gyeongju

Gyeongju glitters with traditional Buddhist temples and towering pagodas. It brims with tales of ancient Korean culture. It's where a proud, colourful history comes to life.

Mount Seoraksan National Park

Mountain peaks, hot springs, and untouched natural beauty. Uncover South Korea's hidden side at Seoraksan National Park. A Biosphere reserve protected by UNESCO, it's a great location for hiking, nature, and wildlife holidays.

Busan

Trendy Busan is South Korea's hippest destination, with tropical beaches, stunning mountain scenery and a thriving cultural scene to be found alongside historic temples. The city is also home to one of the world's largest department stores, and a lively night scene.
