BUSAN
Dalmaji Hill
Located just beyond Haeundae, Dalmaji Road is a small, serene walkway on the corner to Songjeong Beach (on the slope of Wausan, or Mount Wau) and has a treasure of beautiful cherry blossoms and pine trees. On the nights of the full moon the moon gently reflects off the sea, offering perfect views. The many modern art galleries and pretty cafes give the place its nickname of 'Culture Street'.
Haeundae Beach
Haeundae boasts an ideal wide, sandy beach and shallow waters with gentle ripples. At the mention of 'Busan', 'Haeundae' is the first to spring to mind, and it surely is the city's representative spot. In particular, with the buildings and upscale hotels along the shoreline, the beach is well-known for its modern feel.
SEOUL
Capital City-Seoul
Seoul is the capital of Korea with over 600 years of history. It is the heart of Korea’s culture and education as well as politics and economics. Seoul is home to many old historic sites like Gyeongbokgung and Changdeokgung Palaces, and places of traditional culture like Bukchon Hanok Village, Insa-dong, and Namdaemun Market. The shopping and entertainment districts of Myeongdong and Apgujeong, and Asia's largest underground shopping center COEX Mall also draw a large number of tourists every year. The Hangang River, which runs through the center of the city, is also a distinctive landscape of Seoul that offers a myriad of resting areas for citizens.
JEJU
Jeju is proud of its unique cultural folk heritage as well as its geographical and historical relevance. The island itself is an extinct volcano with its peak jutting skyward at the center and a broad, gentle littoral all the way around, a very unique geographical condition. There are bountiful forests and ravines, fantastic rock formations and volcanic craters, and caves and grasslands that together paint a natural scene of breathtaking beauty. Sparkling seas and tiny islets surround Jeju, with jutting rocks set amidst sandy beaches to create a magnificent view virtually everywhere you look.
Exciting Activities and Foods
You can enjoy hiking, bike riding, paragliding, scuba diving, windsurfing, hunting, horseback riding, swimming in the ocean, and sightseeing boat trips in Jeju. Jeju has a wide variety of local fruits and foods, such as delicious Jeju tangerines, saltwater fish (Okdom) stews, grilled saltwater fishes with seasoning, rice porridges with abalone, pheasant dishes and hair-tail fish soups. Jeju is more than simply a tourist destination; it is an island full of wonder. Jeju keeps changing itself into an International Free City, and becomes an island of harmony under the wave of technology while maintaining its ecological treasures.
