Korea is absolutely breathtaking with its flowery spring landscapes, sandy beaches, pine-clad mountains, misty archipelagos, emerald green rice paddies and stunning historic sites. Its rich past, intact customs and unique traditions make it a joy for visitors to experience. Dive into Korea’s distinctive culture and savor Korean staples like delicious Kimchi, a traditional side dish made from salted and fermented vegetables and Dak-galbi (spicy stir-fried chicken).
In Korea, you can admire glorious views of incredible architecture like the Kwang-An Bridge (Diamond Bridge), a two-story bridge that connects Suyeong-gu and Haeundae-gu. Enjoy the spectacular night view of the bridge from afar with its state-of-the-art lighting system that showcases over 100,000 colors. Retreat to Uleung Island, nicknamed "Mysterious Island", a popular weekend holiday spot that has curious rock formations, shore cliffs and numerous waterfalls that adorn the island’s Seaside Road.
It can get quite cold in Korea so pack a good jacket to keep you warm. It is also advisable to check the weather before you travel so that you enjoy the best climate during your stay. Autumn (September to November) and spring (April to June) are thought to be the greatest times to visit as they offer warm, sunny days with clear blue skies. Korea also has excellent public transport systems, so feel free to hop on a bus or train and ride with the locals for a day. Koreans are extremely nice and helpful so don’t be surprised if you're standing in a crowded bus and a passenger offers to have you rest your bag on their lap.
Lastly, it’s good to learn Korean lingo. It always helps to know a little bit of the local language. Korean isn't exactly a language you can pick up overnight, so here are a couple phrases to get you started – Ye means Yes, A-nim-ni-da means No, Ahn-nyung-ha-seh-yo means Hello, and Gam-sah-ham-nee-da means Thank You.
