Korea

Korea is a country of two distinct aspects, the traditional and historic as well as the sleek and the new. The country is determined to leave its troubles behind and has entered the new millennium with a renewed optimism and passion. Despite the ever-widening gap between these two, the former has not completely displaced the latter. These days most towns consist of a new, fashionable area, where discos, karaoke bars, coffee shops and stores sell a variety of goods – everything from designer-label clothing to freshly baked French bread. But in these same towns you will also find the old Korea; street markets formed in an intriguing maze where vendors sell everything from food, fruits, vegetables and seafood just as they have done for hundreds of years before. Korea has much to offer, the avid traveller and many believe it to be the unspoiled gem of Asia. It possesses largely untouched natural landscapes, a vibrant history with traditional culture and local people who are friendly, welcoming and curious.

Busan

Busan is Korea’s second largest city and principal port with ferries departing to Jejudu Island and Japan. The city is located between a series of mountain peaks and ridges, with the town centre nestled between these narrow strips of land. The town possesses an atmosphere of endless tranquility and has much to offer.

Gyeongju

The historic town of Gyeongju was capital during the mighty Silla Dynasty and as such provided Korea with many cultural developments. The town is a virtual open air museum, housing a seemingly endless array of tombs, temples, shrines, castles and gardens. Further inland, the mountains are surrounded by thousands of Buddhist statues and frescoes.

Panmunjeom

The village of Panmunjeom is located 56kms north of Seoul and is the site of the ceasefire line following the Korean War in 1953, hence earning it a nickname of ‘truce village’. It is the only place in the DMZ where visitors are permitted as well as being situated at a close distance to North Korea.

Seoul

Seoul is the capital of South Korea and is home to 11 million of the nation’s 46 million people. As well as being one of the oldest cities, Seoul is also the country’s financial, political, commercial and cultural centre. Old and new mix in this dynamic city offer the visitor with plenty of sightseeing options such as the famed Gyeongbokgung Palace, Seoul Tower and Insadong antique alley.
