South Korea

South Korea


After the Korean War in the early 1950s left the peninsula in ruins, Korea has risen from the ashes to become a much-desired travel destination. Decades after the occupation, the Republic of Korea now boasts major company headquarters in Seoul, such as Samsung (leading in flat-screen TV sales) and worldwide automobile manufacturers Kia and Hyundai — operating the world’s largest integrated automobile manufacturing facility in Ulsan. It isn’t all business, though, as culture and history thrive in the form of numerous museums, palaces, festivals and temples, as well as food, shopping and entertainment.
