National Geographic Traveller Magazine in association with Korea Tourism Organisation prepared this 2014 travel supplement featuring their top ten list of things to see and do in South Korea.
From the Editor: South Korea is fast gaining cult status among travellers in-the-know: steeped in tradition, it's also high-tech, high-tempo and hauntingly beautiful. Its controversial neighbour, North Korea, may get the column inches but the Republic of Korea - as it's officially known - is no underdog.
Discover the futuristic megacity of Seoul, championing the mantra, 'work hard, play hard', and tick off its clutch of UNESCO World Heritage Sites, from Jeju Island to Gyeongju Historic Areas. Or hunker down with monks in a Buddhist temple and eat your way through its mind-blowing culinary scene. There's even epic winter sports to get to grips with, and unlike North Korea, its doors are always wide open.
So throw yourself into South Korea with our top 10 guide.
