Located on a peninsula extending from mainland Asia
and West of Japan
, across the Japanese Sea, South Korea is jewel just waiting to be discovered by travelers
. The region is characterized by mountains in the east and southwest, broad coastal plains in the west and a broad basin of the Nakdong River in the southeast. Thousands of small islands dot the coastal region west of the peninsula, most of them uninhabited. With a condo rental or vacation rental accommodation in the country you will be able to enjoy all aspects of the rich and exotic culture of South Korea.
The once-unified Korea was split into two separate states in 1948 and has remained that way since. While a trip to the northern state is unlikely, you can still visit the demilitarized zone (DMZ)
along the northern border. The area is a heavily fortified border control point which doubles as a hotspot for tourists. English tours are given out on a daily basis by one of the locally-stationed American soldiers
. If you are planning to get a lodging accommodation in South Korea, this is a unique opportunity you won’t want to miss.
Condo rentals and accommodations in South Korea will give you a chance to explore the country’s history and enjoy picturesque scenery while you’re at it. The Changdeokgung Palace is one of the “Five Grand Palaces” created during the Joseon Dynasty and is a great jump-off point for your excursion into Korea’s historic past. Built over six centuries ago, the palace was the residence of Kings and Queens and is surrounded by beautiful architecture dating back to the same period of creation. Make sure to take a stroll through the 78 acres of manicured gardens on the palace grounds.
For the outdoorsmen and women, plenty of hiking trails
are available throughout the country. With the mountainous nature of the area you will not have to go far for beautiful natural vistas and secluded spots. Not surprisingly, mountain biking is a popular activity in South Korea
