See in South Korea

Posted by in on 5-29-13

As South Korea is being a more popular tourist destination, it is hard to list many sightseeing spots here, it would be best to visit pages on specific cities/provinces. However a trip to South Korea is not complete without a visit to the capital, Seoul, and its famous sites, such as the palaces Kyeongbokgung, Changdeokgung, Secret Garden, Gwanghwamun, Seodaemun, as well as the Seoul Tower accompanied by the famous Teddy Bear Museum. The Banpo bridge turns into beautiful colours at night, and the Yeouido Island, apart from the famous 63 Building has splendid parks for rollerblading/biking. You can never miss the Han River  if you cross the bridges connecting Kangbuk and Kangnam of Seoul whilst taking a taxi, subway train or bus.

The Haeundae beach in Busan is very beautiful. Families usually go there in the summer, where the view of the sea is best.

Korean Demilitarized Zone (DMZ) – On July 27th 1953, The Demilitarized Zone (DMZ) was established as a cease-fire agreement with a boundary area of 2km between North and South Koreas. It is also said that there are still a lot of landmines buried in DMZ. In addition, Panmunjeom is the only ‘truce village’ of the Korean Demilitarized Zone (DMZ) where tourists could view North and South Koreas without much hostility. It is probably the only unique area without any troops around as the other area separating the two Koreas is the most heavily armed in the world. The Third Tunnel of Aggression, created by North Korea, was discovered in 1978. This tunnel is not more than an hour or 44km away from Seoul and it is 1.7 km long, 2 m high, 2 m wide and about 73m below ground. Black coke was painted on the wall as a camouflage to look like a coal mine.

Visit the World Heritage cultural sites in Gyeongju and the natural sites on Jeju Island.
