WHY KOREA?UNESCO World Heritage Sites and DMZ


How would you like to stroll in a museum without walls? You will see an ancient observatory or royal tombs, enter grand palaces - these and other remnants scattered across the city of Gyeongju, Korea’s ancient capital way back 57BC, for your travel pleasure. If you’re up for an unforgettable outdoor adventure, head over to Jeju Island. Challenge yourself by hiking Mount Hallasan, the highest mountain of South Korea or diving without oxygen or gears with Haenyeo women divers. If you think that’s exciting, spare some time to visit DMZ (Demilitarized Zone).

South Korea values history, tradition, culture, and nature. Without a doubt, this country holds 13 UNESCO World Heritage Sites, 1 Natural Heritage, and 20 intangible cultural heritages. Now is a great time to discover it, before everyone does.
