Explore Air Travel To A Proud And Ancient Land
By:Lance Angles

A holiday to South Korea can transport visitors to a land that is proud, complex, and fascinating. Though social relations may be based on principles of ancient Confucianism, the country is one which is extremely modern and which has an insatiable appetite for new technology. A trip to South Korea can provide visitors with an experience which is unique, stimulating, and unforgettable.

This is a land rich with endless possibilities. Visitors can be left feeling excited as well as unnerved. In the capital, Seoul, the juxtaposition of new and old is most keenly felt. There are a dizzying variety of sights and attractions within the city, as well as an infectious energy the like of which is rarely found in European and North American metropolises today.

Slightly less modern, but also immensely appealing, the ancient city of Gyeongju should be on every visitor's itinerary. Here you can explore pagodas, temples, and royal tombs. Traveling south you can spend time in the crowded port town of Busan, a place which though may at first seem chaotic does imbibe its own charms to those visitors who persevere.

Not so many international travelers make the effort to explore South Korea's countryside. This is a shame as the large swath of rural land holds many gems. Picturesque mountains, unspoiled fishing villages, lush rich paddies, serene temples, and almost unlimited hiking trails abound. This is where the real Korea is to be found, a world away from the hustle and bustle of urban life. If you want to escape the tourist circuit you will need to venture away from the cities.

The unspoilt, remote islands that make up the Dadohae Haesang National Park offer a glimpse into how the Korean peninsula would have been before encroachment of the modern world. Likewise, the charming backwater town of Buyeo has a pace of life that is slow and relaxed. For the adventurous traveler, a day trip to the DMZ (demilitarized zone) should be penciled in, this is as close to the Communist North as you can get without being fired upon.

Book one of the flights to South Korea and you will be rewarded with an experience that you will not regret. Whether you love the modern, ancient, spiritual, or consumerist, this is a country that has all of these and a whole lot more. A journey here is one that covers a rich cultural tapestry and allows visitors to learn more about this dynamic nation.
