The Mystery that is Korea
Korea is one of the most beautiful and yet unexplored regions of East Asia. It is truly a mystery as to why this slice of heaven has not got the kind of exposure it needs when there are so many places that are “hot spots” on the tourist map when they really don’t deserve that place. With its pine laden mountain peaks, tantalizingly refreshing sights of green and white paddy fields, and astounding natural beauty, a Korea tour is truly a joyful experience for the global wanderer and the family tourist group too.
The Magical Blend
There is an indomitable spirit that has contributed in the country recovering repeatedly from troubled times. Despite the setbacks, the Koreans have managed to maintain their cultural and historical heritage intact, which is evident to anybody who sets foot on the peninsula. South Korea is a mystery for most travellers as the casual tourist has explored little here. Though the country has staggering natural beauty, Korea also has some amazing surprises for the urban crowd with markets that offer an exhaustive shopping experience.
The Koreans are a hospitable people. They are extremely proud of their culture and are always eager to impress and please tourists who come to visit their country. Their friendly nature will surprise you and you are bound to experience hospitality like you have never seen before.
