South Korea is an unexplored slice of East Asia. A land of ancient ruins, romantic legends, natural wonders, extraordinary landscapes and packed modern cities, South Korea can trace its history back half a million years. These days most cities consist of a new fashionable area with coffee shops and karaoke bars, but in these same cities you will also find the Korea of old; alleyways and street markets in an intriguing maze where vendors sell everything, just as they have done for hundreds of years.
