South Korea

The increasingly popular destination of South Korea effortlessly combines modernity with a proud historical heritage to provide a captivating destination for your holiday in Asia. The global city of Seoul is at the cutting edge of electronic technology, giving you the opportunity to browse the latest gadgets at one of the city’s superstores. Use the efficient public transport system to explore the city, taking in the temples and the K-Pop culture in between sampling delicious Korean barbecues. Further afield, the Korean countryside offers a glimpse at a more relaxed lifestyle to contrast with the buzzing cities, whilst a day trip to Panmunjom on the northern border is a sobering, but fascinating way to understand more about the politics of the Korean peninsula.
