Seoraksan National Park

 
Seoraksan National Park Nation’s northernmost park, it contains some of the tallest peaks in the country, with mist-fringed bluffs of exposed crag that could have come straight from a Chinese painting. The name gains ambiguity in translation, but roughly translates as “Snow-Cragged Mountains”; these bony peaks are pretty enough on a cloudy day, but in good weather they’re set alight by the sun, bathed in spectacular hues during its rising and setting. The park stretches around 40km from east to west and about the same from north to south, with the wide area crisscrossed with myriad hiking trails. Also bear in mind that some are closed off from time to time in rotation in order to protect the land: in peak season there can be liter...
 

Nonsan

 
Nonsan Nonsan is a city in Chungcheongnam-do. The city consists of villages that have grown together and some outlying towns. The character is a mix of rural mentality and city-neighborhood stores, with high-rise complexes scattered among and between, and a modicum of urban amenities. There are a few old houses in traditional style - mostly in disrepair. The population is about 140,000. There is a mid-sized university (Kongyang), but it only puts a stamp on the campus-town that has sprung up across from the main entrance....
 

Chonju

 
Chonju Chonju is interesting to travelers because of its 6th-century Kumsansa (Gold Mountain) Temple and 40 feet high Buddha. About an hours drive east of Chonju Mt. Maisan provides a beautiful setting for its many pagodas (especially in the spring and fall). Other attractions in the area include Tokyu-san National Park and the Miruk-sa stone pagoda. ...
 

Dae Gu

 
Dae Gu The third largest city in Korea, Dae Gu is located in the south east of the country. This city in a valley experiences some of the hottest summers, and mildest winters, of mainland Korea. One of the city's most popular attractions is Mount Palgong, located just outside the city. The mountain offers stunning views of the countryside, and is home to a number of Buddhist temples. Visitors will find numerous restaurants, coffee shops and jimjilbang (saunas) scattered throughout the region. The mountain is accessible by car, taxi and city bus....
 

Samcheunpo

 
Samcheunpo Samcheunpo is a lovely but very small city on the southern coast of South Korea. It is so small, in fact, that it's residents boast of being the smallest city in Korea - that is, the city with the minimum possible residents to be considered a city, and not a town. There are many small public beaches nestled between the high rock cliffs of the coast. The water is quite warm in the summer, although the inlets are very shallow, so you may have to wade out quite a bit to get in deeper than your waist. Most of the beaches feature banana boat or jetski rides and plenty of rentable amenities. Perhaps the most interesting jewel of this city for the traveller interested in rare finds is the Dinosaur Park Beach. Many fam...

The girls that work at these clubs include Filipinas, Koreans, and Russians....
 

Suwon

 
Suwon Suwon has a rich history since it was founded during the Joseon Dynasty in the 18th century as a fortress city. Its city walls are a world heritage site and it offers a look back at South Korea's past. It's home to Hwaseong Fortress, Woncheon Amusement Park, Everland Amusement Park, The Korean Traditional Folk Village, and various temples and tombs. But Suwon is also tuned in to the future - it is recognized as South Korea's leading city in digital technology....
 

Ulsan

 
Ulsan Ulsan is a metropolitan city in the southeast of Korea on the Sea of Japan. It is 70 kilometres north of Busan. Those who come to Ulsan are predominantly here to work for the large conglomerates or heavy industries (Hyundai Motors being one of the most notable) and to teach English as a foreign language. It is considered the industrial centre of the country with some guidebooks likening the city to Pittsburgh or Detroit in the USA. There is much truth in this view. Yet recently re-elected Mayor, Park-Maeng-woo, plans to establish an Eco-polish based on the restoration of the Taewha river. In 2010 it will host World Environmental Day which should crown Ulsan's rebirth as an environmentally-friendly ecological city. ...
 

Kyongju

 
Kyongju Kyongju (often spelled Gyongju) contains a remarkable concentration of outstanding exapmples of Korean Buddhist art, in the form of sculptures, reliefs, pagodas, temples and palaces. Kyongju city and its surroundings inherited the glory that bloomed and withered in the ancient Silla Dynasty that lasted thousand years (57BC - 935AD). The city has been preserved through the designation of National Heritage and UNESCO World Heritage site. Gyongju is a big, open-air museum. The center of town is easily walkable, with access to tombs, fortress walls, ruins and museums within a few minutes. Bikes are also available for rent. Mercifully, strict building codes have stopped those concrete high rise apartment blocks from ...
