South Korea

Shrugging off its past, South Korea is now a thriving tech haven attracting more visitors than ever before. Its fast-paced streets are seeped in 5000 years of culture and intricate history, while over 80% of its geography is mountainous, making it a dynamic destination for hikers. South Korea is broken into provinces, with the futuristic capital Seoul sitting in the country’s north west. Think: ultra-modern skyscrapers, lively markets and traditional Buddhist temples.

The most rugged and mountainous terrain is found in the east, while the west is flatter, making it ideal for agriculture. For a taste of traditional South Korea, head to UNESCO-listed Andong Hahoe village, or jump across the Korea Strait and you’ll land on Jeju-do, the South Korean answer to Hawaii. Don’t forget to feast on some delicious bibimbap (mixed rice) and the national dish kimchi (fermented vegetables) along the way!
