South Korea travel guide

4.2
Land of the Morning Calm
Though it boasts a history spanning thousands of years, South Korea ranks among the world's most urbanized and modernized countries, with nearly half of its population living in high-rises concentrated in the national capital. In this land of pristine mountain scenery, many South Korea vacations involve some form of winter sports--not surprising for the country that won the bid to host the 2018 Winter Olympics. Curious travelers wishing to get to know South Korea's heart and soul spend only a small part of their holiday in big cities like Busan and Seoul, devoting much of their attention to the tranquil countryside that seems largely untouched by the 21st century.

Gangwon-do travel guide

4.1
Islands · National Parks · Beaches
Predominantly mountainous, the northernmost province of Gangwon-do offers a wide range of outdoor activities in natural scenery. A typical Gangwon-do itinerary includes scenic hikes through national parks dotted by Buddha statues and tall pagodas, plus relaxation on clean beaches in summer or excellent skiing in winter. Take a cable car to enjoy a view of the World Heritage-listed mountain biosphere, and tour the Demilitarized Zone to understand the magnitude of foreign-imposed division. Forests with edible alpine plants and mushrooms add unique flavors to Gangwon-do's cuisine, which also uses cuttlefish and pollock harvested from the long, steep coast.
