South Korea

Seoul, South Korea

Seoul, the capital city of the Republic of Korea, is at the heart of the Korean Peninsula and where Korea’s traditional and modern cultures coexist. Seoul shows their pride in their tradition and history through the preservation of royal palace sites, fortress walls, and museums of prehistoric remains and relics. Seoul offers various activities to do with amusement parks, restaurants, shopping locations, and a bustling nightlife! Korea is conveniently located in the middle of several major northeast Asian metropolises, such as Tokyo, Beijing, Shanghai and Taipei so there are many opportunities to travel. Geographically, it is an extraordinary example of good location, as mountains, rivers and urban spaces all combine to produce a picture-perfect city.
