South Korea

Travel in South Korea

Hanging from China like a teardrop, the Korean peninsula offers a relatively untravelled treasure trove of delights: from pine-clad mountains and lush fields of rice paddies to glorious tropical islands; glittering temples and bejewelled palaces to energetic cities. The peninsula was split in two following the civil war in 1953, with North Korea isolating itself while South Korea has managed to elegantly balance a powerhouse economy with a continued respect and reverence for its traditions and history.
