Overview

Split by a trigger-happy, dictator-lead border, South Korea offers travellers a dazzling range of unique experiences, beautiful landscapes and 5000 years of culture and history as opposed from its much-secluded neighbour. And although its capital, Seoul, takes the most of the plaudits with technologically driven and red-hot energy of its residents, South Korea also has more to offer if you would venture into the road less taken. The various geographical areas of South Korea are just mind-boggling, to say the least. This land of "10,000 peaks, 10,000 islands and 10,000 waterfalls" is a place of never-ending contrasts that is filled with beautiful beaches, ancient temples, remarkable natural scenery and most importantly, friendly people to help you get around.

South Korea is home to an endless number of world-class attractions and annual festivals that foreigners and locals alike enjoy each year. And to make things even better, Korea is simply enjoyable touring all year round as it experiences all 4 seasons. In spring, South Korea is coated in pink when cherry blossoms, decorating the country throughout. And imagine during Autumn season, the country is bathed in the most stunning shades of orange and red as the autumn leaves start to bloom. Your trip to South Korea will certainly be as amazing as you can imagine it to be when you plan with your family and friends for tour packages to South Korea!

What to do in South Korea?

- Let's get Seoul out of the way first. Located at the heart of the city, ironically fascinating, you can tour South Korea's traditional hanok houses in Bukchon Hanok Village. In the Summer, you can find shade and dip your feet inside the Cheonggyecheon Stream, a modern stream that runs through downtown Seoul.

- For some adrenaline rushing good time, you can spend a day at the world's largest indoor theme park, Lotte World, or scream and shout at Everland Theme Park. Also, be ready to be impressed by some architectural brilliance at Ewha Woman's University and Dongdaemun Design Plaza.

- Jeju Island, full of nature's treasure. In the east coast of Jeju, you can tour its UNESCO World Natural Heritage at Seongsan Ilchulbong Peak, Seopjikoji, Baekyaki Oreum, and Woljeongri Beach. You can also witness a three-tier waterfall at Cheonjeyeon Waterfall.

- In the half-moon-shaped isle near Seoul, touring Nami Island is also a must when you were to visit South Korea. Nami Island is a magical and unique place as this island truly reflects how stunning the 4 seasons of Korea can be.

- Continuing with the island theme, you can also tour Geojedo Island, the second largest island in Korea (first being Jeju Island). It is a very popular short gateway destination for the people of Busan as you can arrive there for about an hour by car.

- You can't miss visiting Korea during spring. Experiencing Jinhae Gunhangje Festival and Hwagae Cherry Blossoms Festival in Busan and Gyeongsangnam-do is something you need to witness once on your lifetime! Best time to experience this is during early to mid-April.

Where to shop in South Korea?

- If you love shopping, Korea is the perfect place for you. even when you have a few hours in Seoul, you need to squeeze Myeong-dong into your plan. With a chock load of massive department stores, fashion boutiques, and, of course, a wave of skincare and cosmetics shop, Myeong-dong can convert anyone into becoming a shopaholic.

- For a more affordable cosmetic bargain, you can even shop at Ewha Woman's University Shopping Street. Any price that can fit into a student's budget, can definitely fit into any tourists' budget as well.

 

Are there any festivals in Korea?

What to eat in South Korea?

- With the boost of tourism, halal food and Muslim friendly restaurants can be much easier to be found in South Korea. Although Korean fans are accustomed to Korean food such as kimchi, bulgogi, and japchae, but Korean food would definitely taste much better in Korea! In Korea, you can now even enjoy Jjajangmyeon at Makan Halal Korean Restaurant, Halal-certified restaurant. There are also numerous halal-friendly restaurants such as Nimat, Yang Good Halal BBQ and EID Guesthouse.

- You can also ride the bus in South Korea as it is also efficient and most importantly cheap!. The Seoul Express Bus Terminal and the Central City Terminal (both in Seoul) are the gateways to bus routes that connect most of the country.

- We recommend you to purchase the T-money card. This card is a rechargeable smart card that can be used to pay public transit for trains, buses and even taxis.
