South Korea Tourism Website
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.”
