A pearl of the Far East, where modernity meets tradition, creating harmony together. Far away from the cities are impressive rice fields, the locals invite home for seafood and energy tea, and accommodation in a wooden, traditional hut is a real experience.
Korean culture impresses, both with its traditional dimension and pop culture news, conquering the hearts of western youth. For important occasions, Koreans put on "Hanbok" - a long fabric without pockets: for women - a dress, for men - wide pants. The clothing is colorful, made of light knitwear, and seniors wear hanbok even daily. The traditional hairstyle is the braid that every citizen wore without marriage, regardless of gender. Currently, Korean culture is the most recognizable due to K-Pop music and the associated subcultural environment.
Art here is inseparable from nature. Two styles of palace and utility dominated in architecture. The former was borrowed from the Chinese, in the latter thatched houses and heated the floors. While in Seoul, you cannot miss the impressive Gyeongbok Palace. Another attraction is the big market in Seoul, where you can find everything from fruit to jewelry. One of the most famous streets is the historic Insadong - narrow, built in the old style abounding in cafes and art galleries. The Pulguksa temple, a UNESCO World Heritage Site, is also worth seeing.
Trips to the mountain tops, rest in densely forested national parks and impressive ski slopes, almost adjacent to the varied coast, ideal for sailing. In a small area, Korea has many attractions. It delights with nature and culture, lasting continuously for 5 thousand years.
