South Korea is an old nation which keeps on reinventing itself.
That’s evident from its rich and vibrant culture which has resulted in hordes of travellers come to enjoy heritage tourism in South Korea. After all, South Korea is bestowed with 17 UNESCO Intangible Cultural Heritages of Humanity. It also has 12 UNESCO World Heritage sites.
South Korea on the other hand has developed ultra-modern urban metropolises those allure all with their glitz and glory. The co-existence of both these worlds is probably what makes South Korea irresistible for the travellers. Here ancient royal structures stand witness to the passage of time against an urban skyline that looks like starry night. No wonder, South Korea is the 20th most visited country in the world. In context of Asia, it stands at an even higher 6.
To elaborate farther one can take the context of Seoul, the capital of South Korea. Seoul has been a capital of the region for more than the past 2000 years. And has five UNESCO World Heritage sites within its periphery. But the new Seoul is also making its mark felt. At the same spot. That’s why Seoul also boasts of iconic landmarks like YTN Seoul Tower; Dongdaemun Design Plaza an epitome of neofuturistic design; Lotte World recognised as the world’s second largest indoor theme park; and the world’s longest bridge fountain by the name of Moonlight Rainbow Fountain. Hence whether one is looking for heritage tourism or leisure tourism, Seoul can satisfy both the wishes. With a happening night life and vibrant food scene Seoul has all that one desires from one vacation.
South Korea also provides ample opportunities for beach tourism, wildlife tourism and adventure tourism. Another great way to explore South Korea is through attending intriguing annual festivals. Some of these festivals are Boryeong Mud Festival – a take on Indian Holi wherein colours get replaced by mud, and the Cheongdo Bullfighting Festival among others.
