Get to know South Korea with Viator
Occupying the southern half of the Korean Peninsula, South Korea is a country of contrasts. Nearly half the population lives in Seoul, which is modern and high tech but also steeped in tradition—a city where soaring skyscrapers and shopping malls surround imperial palaces and temples. Outside the city, the country offers serene mountains and forests, as well as remote islands with dormant volcanoes and sleepy fishing villages.
