A phenomenon known as the "Korean Wave" has hit the world in recent years due to the sudden popularity of Korean music, food, television and culture. Even before that, the history of this beautiful country was already attracting millions each year!
Situated on the Korean Peninsula between Japan and China, South Korea has been involved in WW2 and the Korean War that followed and effectively sealed off its northern neighbor.
You may know a lot of China's history and Japan's as well, but Korea's is one that is often not talked about especially when it comes to the time well before the modern conflicts.
Now's a great time for you to learn about it all, first hand!
While my visit to South Korea was ruined by extreme cold with wind chills down to -16 degrees Fahrenheit!
Even so, I offer full services for the city of Seoul as well as visiting the Hwaseong Fortress, Daejeon and Busan.
Additionally and a must-visit, is a guided tour to the DMZ where you will be able to see over into North Korea! The photo to the right is one I took at the Dora Observatory and you can see the North's flag flying from the pole.
Partial and full day trips are offered but I suggest the full day, as that is the only one that will take you to Panmunjom.
There are no visa requirements for US citizens visiting for tourism.
No vaccinations are required to enter South Korea.
