South Korea is a country still relatively unknown to even the most intrepid traveller. Long a popular destination for its Asian neighbours, its charms are now also increasingly being discovered and appreciated by Western visitors.
Lying between China and the islands of Japan, South Korea (officially the Republic of Korea or ROK) forms part of the Korean Peninsula, home to over 5,000 years of history and culture, beautiful landscapes and amazing experiences.
Beyond the high-wattage glow of the energetic 24-hour cities that are the outward face of one of the booming economies in the Far East lie diverse landscapes of pristine national parks, fields of tea plantations, stunning coastlines and island chains that provide inspiring and rewarding walking. Underlying the gleaming high-tech modernity is a reverence for age-old culture and traditions, reflected in the carefully preserved and respected temples and palaces, charming villages of hanok (traditional homes) and warm and welcoming people.
