South Korea Tourism Website

Imagine Your Korea

Standard website with the usual complement of what to do and where to do it, punctuated with travel information and general government tourism-speak.  Heading into Croatia territory on the run-on sentences.

From the website; an example of a destination write-up:

Towns, cities and provinces around Korea have a knack for finding a niche – a product, a particular cuisine or even a mud festival to attach themselves to.  Some have historic connections, some don’t, but whatever the connection is, once it has been made in the hearts and minds of the people, an unbreakable bond forms, and that place, for better or worse, is forever entwined with said cultural property.  Jeonju has bibimbap, Boryeong has its mud festival, and Damyang-gun in Jeollanam-do has bamboo.
Bamboo may be universally associated with sword wielding ninjas, crouching tigers and hidden dragons, but Damyang, the northernmost point on the Korean Peninsula where bamboo grows in abundance, has cornered the market as far as Korea goes. There are plenty of attractions in Damyang, but the bamboo is inescapable and seems to pervade every aspect of life here.”

  1. Hey, nice post!
    If you like to find upcoming events and things to do while on the go you should check out etrigg. As an example see the Upcoming Events page for Seoul: etrigg.com/upcoming/seoul
    The site helps a lot with finding meetups, happy hours, concerts, sports events, seminars, conferences and much more without the need of an app download or browsing around on slow loading sites with a mobile device :)

    • While not fully on target in terms of planners, it looks like your site does give some ideas of things that you can do while in South Korea. when people are making their travel plans, the more resources the better. Good luck! Elaine

    I hope to have a tour guide to bring us around and with private tour guide to those attractives we hope to explore.

    Wondering if you plan out a tour for us and get me a quotation.
    Please give me contact email or number.

    • Dear Leng Kam Pei – At this late date it will be difficult to make a specific suggestion. Normally we advise you to contact one of the listed travelers directly. In this case, your hotel concierge might be able to arrange a guide. You can also check on viator.com; a website that offers tours and packages in many cities worldwide.
