Best things to do and see in South Korea

An East Asian nation on the southern half of the Korean Peninsula most well-known as the land of kimchi, K-pop, and hi-tech, among many others. South Korea offers tourists an exciting range of activities and an array of yearly festivities to join. Book your flights to South Korea and time them with one of these festivals to get the best out of your trip. The Yeouido Spring Flower Festival is a celebration of spring flowers such as azaleas, forsythia, and the world-famous cherry blossom. Though traditionally celebrated in Japan, this festival is also held every in Seoul, South Korea's capital, around mid-April. Jeju Island is located just off the coast of the Korean Peninsula, largely dominated by the volcano Hallasan. In Early March, Jeju Island hosts the Jeju Fire Festival to celebrate the arrival of Spring and an indication to the locals to start praying for good health and a good harvest in the year to come. If you grab one of the South Korea flight deals during mid-July, make your way a couple of hours south of Seoul to the town of Boryeong to join in the Boryeong Mud Festival, complete with mud baths, mud wrestling, mud sliding, and take part in the wide range of games available.

Much like all the other Asian countries, food exploration in South Korea can be exhilarating and full of wonderful surprises. Although South Korea is more well-known for technology, recent delicacies like kimchi prove this is changing. Bulgogi, a marinated beef barbecue, is a popular dish with many locals and foreigners. It's a savoury, juicy dish of marinated meat, grilled with garlic and sliced onion and served with a thick, spicy red paste called ssamjang. Japchae is a stir-fried noodle dish often served as a side dish. This dish consists of noodles fried up with shredded vegetables, sweet potato, beef, sugar, and a hint of soy sauce. Sometimes other ingredients like mushrooms are added to the dish. One of the most famous dishes in South Koreas is Kimchi, a staple in Korean cuisine and is a spicy and sour dish made from fermented vegetables prepared with an array of ingredients, cabbage being one of the main ones. One of South Korea's traditional hot soups is Seolleongtang or ox bone soup. This soup is made from ox meat, ox bones, and briskets, most commonly seasoned with ground black pepper, salt, minced garlic, and chopped green onions.

South Korea is a beautiful place to explore if you're interested in great food, architecture, festivals, and unique Asian culture. You absolutely can not go to South Korea without hitting a Karaoke Bar and singing the night away with your friends in a karaoke room with food and drinks. These rooms are designed so that you don't have to sing in front of strangers if you don't want to. Head to Boryeong during the mud festival and splash around in mud baths and slide down mudslides. Busan is the second-largest city in Korea and well worth a visit during the summer to kick back and relax on the beaches. Busan is surrounded by the Sea of Japan and the Yellow Sea. Haeundae Beach is one of the most sought-after beaches in the city. K-pop is a popular scene in South Korea, and you'll be inundated with it from the moment you arrive. Consider splashing out and going to a concert to watch these famous Korean groups perform the popular music genre with perfectly choreographed routines.

If you're a UK national travelling with a British passport, you can enter South Korea for up to 90 days without needing a visa. You will need to provide proof of onward or return travel upon your arrival, and your passport must be valid for at least the duration of your stay.
