“하늘이 무너져도 솟아날 구멍이 있다”

“Even if the sky collapses, there is a hole to escape out of” - Korean Proverb

Rarely out of the news thanks to its incredulous neighbour to the North, South Korea is more often talked about as a political entity rather than a travel destination, which is a shame considering how much it has to offer. Exploring modern cities full of shiny skyscrapers with commuters clutching the latest technology, you could be forgiven for thinking you had jumped forward in time, however with a history spanning millennia, you are never far away from statues, temples and antiquities offering a tempting glimpse into Korea’s fascinating past. Being the only officially divided country in the world it would be hard to ignore the tension with North Korea, and a trip to the DMZ is an option for the curious who want to know more about this highly charged part of the world. Whatever your reason for travelling to South Korea, you can guarantee that you will be properly fuelled for your adventure with some of the best food in the world, even the most humble of street vendors will give you a flavour experience you will never forget!
