South Korea is a country in East Asia, constituting the southern part of the Korean Peninsula and sharing a land border with North Korea. The name Korea is derived from Goguryeo which was one of the great powers in East Asia during its time, ruling most of the Korean Peninsula, Manchuria, parts of the Russian Far East and Inner Mongolia under Gwanggaeto the Great. Its capital, Seoul, is a major global city and half of South Korea’s 51 million people live in the Seoul Capital Area, the fourth largest metropolitan economy in the world.

The Korean Peninsula was inhabited as early as the Lower Paleolithic period. Its first kingdom was noted in Chinese records in the early 7th century BC. Following the unification of the Three Kingdoms of Korea into Silla and Balhae in the late 7th century, Korea was ruled by the Goryeo dynasty (918–1392) and the Joseon dynasty (1392–1897). The succeeding Korean Empire was annexed into the Empire of Japan in 1910. After World War II, Korea was divided into Soviet and U.S.-administered zones, with the latter becoming the Republic of Korea in August 1948. In 1950, a North Korean invasion began the Korean Warand after its end in 1953, the country’s economy began to soar, recording the fastest rise in average GDP per capita in the world between 1980 and 1990. Authoritarian rule ended in 1987 and the country is now the most advanced democracy with the highest level of press freedom in Asia. South Korea is a member of the OECD’s Development Assistance Committee, the G20 and the Paris Club.

South Korea is a highly developed country and the world’s 11th largest economy by nominal GDP. Its citizens enjoy the world’s fastest Internet connection speeds and the longest years of tertiary education in the world, along with the world’s second most equal access to quality healthcare, resulting in the third highest health adjusted life expectancy in the world. The world’s 5th largest exporter and 8th largest importer, South Korea is a global leader in many technology and innovation driven fields. Since 2014, South Korea has been named the world’s most innovative country by the Bloomberg Innovation Index for 6 consecutive years. Since the 21st century, South Korea has been renowned for its globally influential pop culture such as K-pop and K-dramas, a phenomenon referred to as the Korean Wave.

South Korea is one of the most expensive countries in Asia, especially in comparison with the countries of Southeast Asia. The standard of living there is very similar to those in Europe. A large budget will therefore be needed, especially for accommodation. On the other hand, local food is rather cheap.

Still, you should plan a budget of about 110€ per day on average. But depending on the level of comfort you are looking for, the budget can range from 30€ to 225€ per day.

Public transport in the country is very well developed, which is a much more economical and ecological solution than car rental. Restaurants offering continental food are expensive and are not very popular among Koreans. It is therefore preferable to go to Korean restaurants that will make your trip more authentic and less expensive.

Flights from France all depart from Paris. They cost on average from 580€ to 700€.

Secluded places like these but with the most amazing view, especially at night, are the top romantic location. Due to its popularity, it’s also a popular spot amongst locals. What can be more romantic than a panoramic view with city lights all over Seoul?⁣⁣

김제벽골제.

가을이 되면 참 예뻐지는곳이 김제에요.

끝없이 펼쳐진
야무지게 익은 노란벼들
도로 주변엔
키가 큰 코스모스가 피거든요.

그런데 저 두용은
갈때마다 느끼는거지만
항상 내기억 보다 더 크고
더 쫌 기괴😅해요.

밤엔 정말 많이 무서워요.
특히 이렇게 가까이
찍어야 할때면
연약한 저는 참으로
힘들게 촬영을 합니다😅

Daereungwon Tomb Complex
Did you know that these hills are actually upper class tombs of the Silla period?

💡 Introduction
Daereungwon Tomb Complex is a well kept tumuli park that is picturesque any time of year. The highlight is the Cheonmachong Tomb which has a famous wall painting ‘Cheonmado’ inside the tomb. Visitors can enter the tomb to see what the inside looks like. But the coffin display is a replica and the actual recovered treasures are at the national museum. It is definitely a must visit because the hills are the tombs of Silla kings and queens in typical Silla style and offer an unique and traditional view that you can see only in Gyeongju.

부귀2터널 위.

저엉말 간만에 요길 갔어요.

어떤 진사님이
쇠사슬을 끊어놓았다는
소문이 있었는데..

당시에 들을때 겉으론
"왜 그런데 그러니까
싸잡아 욕먹잖아.."했지만
속으론 왠지 모를 안도감이 ㅎ

니미ㅋ 😭 그건 헛소문.
갔더니 쇠사슬이 떡 막고 있어
차 놔두고...
뺑이 치고 걸어 올라갔네요.

연약한 전 무서워서
한 번도 서서 촬영해 본 적 없는 곳인데, 풀이 자라서 인지
덜 무서워 보여서
첨으로 서서 촬영을 했어요

그간 간땡이가 부은듯 ㅋ

Busan has over 3.5 million residents which makes one of the biggest cities in South Korea. Many tall and shiny skyscrapers are appearing along the coastline to accommodate the influx of residents. It’s nestled in the mountains and bordered by some of South Korea’s best beaches on the other side. Busan is also a paradise for lovers of fresh seafood.⁣⁣
