Korea South - World Fact - Hostel in Europe

Korea South

Korea south Beeing the southern part of the peninsula, South Korea is a high developed country, where you will be able to find a city like Seoul, the number one destination of the country. This commercial centre, contains also the Changdokkung palace surrounded by the Secret Gardens, go to Kyongju and you will find the "museum without walls" containing the ancient history of Korea and the Buddhist culture. Going to the coast you will find the largest sea port and experience a busy fish market. But that is only so little of what Korea has to offer. Hostel in Europe Network
