Colourful festivals, fantastic shopping options and delicious cuisine await
A well-developed, comfortable transport system can whizz you into the countryside with ease too. Enjoy the beguiling mountains, forests, springs and temples of Seoraksan National Park. Experience another world entirely at Jejudo – not an ancient martial art but the wild and tamed, holiday-making and honeymoon island off the tip of the peninsula. Here you'll find volcanic landscapes and the South's tallest peak, Hallasan – 1950m. Sandy beaches, dive spots, circus shows and the world's longest lava tube also feature.
On your holiday in South Korea, also consider visiting Gyeongju and surrounds for a selection of tombs, temples, Buddhist statues and ruins of palaces and pleasure gardens. This old city's cultural revival began in the early 20th century and continues today.
