    Nice post lexx, I would love to visit South Korea – I’m a big fan of Asia in general – I lived and worked in Thailand and Taiwan (I’m married to a Thai – 18 years) but I’ve yet to see South Korea. Like you I love a bit of hiking, but I also enjoy exploring big cities too. South Korea looks and sounds like my kind of place. Keep up the good work and thanks for sharing!

    I think it’s all about the natural beauty-beaches, mountains, rivers. There’s a bit of everything for sure.

    I need to be in that cave, and the hiking looks absolutely incredible in South Korea! Korean barbecue is also a major plus. Can’t wait to visit one day 🙂

    You are not joking when you said South Korea has something for everyone! I’m a beach fan so would definitely go and check them out but I love the scenery as well. I’m very impressed at their urban regeneration ideas, more cities should take note 😀 You really have given us 15 reasons to visit (and Baseball?? Who knew?!) pinned for when we visit #feetdotravel

    Nice write up Lexx. I enjoyed visiting South Korea a couple of years ago and would love to go back. The DMZ was an interesting place to visit and quite unlike anywhere I’ve been to before. And yes I agree the transportation is great, especially around Seoul.

    I’m strongly considering visiting South Korea in October and reading this has really helped its case. If I had around 10 days, do you think seeing Seoul, Busan, Jeju and the DMZ would be possible? I’ll definitely be keen for that Seoul guide 😉

      10 days would be pushing it. It depends how long you would want to spend in the cities but with careful planning it’s doable. You would definitely need to fly to Jeju but it’s only about a 30 min flight from Busan so that would work well. Let me know if you need more info

    I’ve only been to the Incheon Airport, I really need to visit South Korea for a few weeks. It’s good to hear the public transport is cheap and efficient, that’s perfect for how I travel. I love Korean food so it’s als perfect that it is cheap.

    Yes, you have sold it! I want to go to South Korea for the food, for the markets and the incredible hiking there seems to be! I think Korea will become the next Iceland soon with every body writing about it-I have read so many amazing things already. Please tell me it’s budget friendly!

      It’s a great country and might well be the “next big thing”. Budget-wise it’s sort of in the middle. It’s nowhere near as cheap as places like Thailand but equally not as expensive as Japan. Food is pretty affordable and so is getting around. It definitely won’t break the bank!

    I’m really keen to get to South Korea. It was never really on my radar until meeting a couple of people who lived there for a while and reading your posts. I love how accessible hiking is to the city and the food, of course, is a draw. I’ll pin on my Korea board for future reference.

    South Korea looks amazing! We are fascinated by stalactites and stalagmites. The Gosu Cave is something we would love to visit. The food is too yummy for us to resist. Gotta go to South Korea soon.
