Often called the “Land of the Morning Calm”, South Korea boasts of picturesque landscapes and years of culture and history. There is something for everybody within the borders of this peninsular land. Adventure lovers can trek through the trails of Jeju Island, which has 26 routes in total (21 main routes, and five sub-routes) and each route offers unique views of Jeju Island’s beautiful landscapes. Or they could hike through Gyeonggi-do, a hiking trail connecting the forest paths and villages along the foothills of Bukhansan Mountain and Dobongsan Mountain in Bukhansan National Park. And for those who love the best of both worlds, Seoul, the capital, offers a bit of everything: from vivacious culture to a non-stop nightlife.
