Whether it is staying overnight in a Buddhist temple or scaling the peaks of rugged mountains, South Korea has so much to offer the traveller who is fortunate enough to explore this incredible country.
Spring or autumn are beautiful times to visit, mostly because the countryside is either awash with cherry blossom, or alight with the fiery reds and golds of autumn leaves. The hotels in South Korea often have special offers at these time to entice more visitors.
With over 5,000 years of history, there are plenty of historical sites to ponder over from seeing how royalty used to live at the Changgyeonggung Palace near Seoul to visiting prehistoric rock tombs on Ganghwa Island and walking along the best preserved fortress in the country at Suwon.
One experience not to miss, which might be possible in some of the hotels in South Korea is to indulge in a jjimjilbang (Korean Spa). Most towns have one as it is where the locals used to bathe before houses had bathrooms. You can sweat in the sauna, have a massage, or just chill out.
For city life, take a night cruise along the Han River to see Seoul lit up, or shop till you drop at one of the many huge department stores throughout the country. Get there first thing and you will be greeted with a polite bow from staff at the front door waiting to serve you.
To really feel part of the culture, when you stay in most of the hotels in South Korea remember to take your shoes off at the entrance. This may not apply to the more high-end hotels in South Korea but whichever of the hotels in South Korea you stay in, make sure you book it through Vayama.ie.
