The Republic of South Korea is half of the Korean Peninsula in Asia and borders with North Korea. South Korea lies between two superpowers: China in the West and Japan in the East, and throughout history has been influenced by the expansionist ambitions of both, and has been forced to maneuver between them to preserve its culture and beliefs.
North Korea offers a rewarding and thought-provoking travel experience.
It has some amazing attractions such as ancient temples, rich Buddhist history of Myohyangsan and an intresting trek to the volcanic mountain lake of Paektusan, the spiritual birthplace of Korea.
The beaches and valleys of Chilbosan highlight the untouched beauty of North Korea’s diverse landscape. Although the bulk of the country is still off limits, there are more sights to see now than ever before and the list is growing all the time.
The capital of South Korea, Seoul, is very modernity and has skyscrapers, luxurious malls, and expansive parks, yet there are many testimonies of ancient times, temples, and ancient buildings.
South Koreans are avid wildlife enthusiasts and you can see many of them strolling out of town, on foot, by car or by bicycle, in one of the national parks, the secluded beaches, the hot springs and even the country’s ski resort.
