Why Travel to South Korea
South Korea is home to a number of UNESCO World Heritage Sites set against contemporary skyscrapers. Some of these World Heritage Sites include the Changdeokgung Palace Complex in Seoul, Hwaseong Fortress in Gyeonggi Province and the historic villages of Hahoe and Yangdong located in the North Gyeongsang Province.
The country is a popular travel destination in Asia thanks to the variety and number of activities visitors can do or see while in South Korea. One can visit the film locations of popular Korean dramas or sample authentic Korean cuisine after a successful day of shopping in Myeong-dong. Visit the royal palaces of South Korea including Gyeongbokgung or climb the N Seoul Tower to view an amazing panoramic view of Seoul’s city skyline. For a bit of nature, head over to the Seoraksan National Park or climb the three major peaks of Bukhansan or Bukhan Mountain. For family travellers, a visit to the Everland and Lotte World theme parks would be a joy to kids and adults alike.
Best Time to Visit South Korea
South Korea enjoys a temperate climate with four distinct seasons. The spring season from the end of March to mid-May and the fall season from September to November are considered to be the best seasons to have a holiday in South Korea. The summer season in the country can be hot and wet while winters can get very cold and dry. However, beyond weather there are other things to consider when planning a trip to Korea. One thing to avoid is travelling during the major Korean holidays as popular tourists spots and destinations can get crowded with local tourists.
