South Korea is almost enigmatic as it flies under the radar for many travellers. From the buzz of Seoul to Busan’s breathtaking wonders, leave no stone unturned when exploring all that South Korea has to offer.
Highlights of South Korea
Visit South Korea’s largest palace, Seoul’s Geyongbok Palace, to witness its elaborate changing of the guard ceremony. The traditional ceremony has taken place in the imposing former royal palace for over 500 years and provides a fascinating insight into South Korea’s past.
Step back 600 years and immerse yourself in traditional Korean culture as you stroll through Bukchon Hanok Village in Seoul. The preserved village is home to hundreds of traditional houses, some of which remain homes, while others have been converted into tea rooms and museums.
Visit the Demilitarised Zone to gain an understanding of the relationship between North and South Korea. See DMZ highlights including the Third Infiltration Tunnel, where it’s believed some 30,000 soldiers could pass through within an hour, and head to Dora Observatory for binocular views into North Korea.
