South Korea

South Korea is a country on the go, on the move, and the faster- the better. The frenetic energy culminates in Seoul, a dynamic, buzzing metropolis with no concept of closing times. You can bargain for antiques, admire world-famous art and take a public bath, all in one afternoon. Outside the buzz of the capital, the possibilities are varied and limitless. Spend the night at a Buddhist temple, discover the ruins of ancient dynasties and tease your taste buds with kimchi at every meal. Hike past extinct volcanoes, shop for hand-made pottery, and snatch a glimpse of feudal Korea at the Hahoe Folk Village. For a vacation within a vacation, follow holiday-minded Koreans to Jejudo, the country’s famed island getaway. Forget the culture gaps and get in the spirit of things by grilling your own food at a traditional Korean barbecue. Just be sure to wash it all down with a bottle of local soju.
