Travel Guide: Gyeongju

I have been fortunate enough to visit several cities and regions of the very much underestimated nation of South Korea. Cities with enough relics and attractions to keep travellers of varying interests entertained for the duration of their trip. None of which compare to the unbelievable breadth of history and culture that survives in the…

Jeju Island

The states have Hawaii, South Korea has Jeju. This island is highly rated amongst both locals and visitors alike as an island paradise. I heard many good things and received several promises. Promises that this was the best place in all of Korea I could hope to visit. My expectations were high, but as history…

Busan (Again)

To visit anywhere once is a privilege, to visit there twice is a blessing. I last visited Busan almost 6 months ago, and since then I declared its once of the best places I have ever visited, a point to which I hold strong to this day. I’d be lying if I said this stop…

Busan

Here’s what I got up to during my 2-days in Busan   For most, Seoul is the only city that’s known in the nation of South Korea, with many more concerned with the near-by border. Many tend to forget about life on the other side of the country. Few will have heard of this bustling…

The DMZ (Demilitarized Zone), Korea

Backpacking follows a predictable set of events; first follow the well-beaten tracks, before seeking a unique adventure not many get to see. The DMZ (Demilitarized Zone) marks the fragile divide between the borders of both Korean countries. The heavily guarded separation between the two keeps the fragile illusion of peace while on the edge of…

Seoul

Seoul; the capital of South Korea, kimchee and K-pop. This city has lived up to its big name as a booming 24-7 city nestled beside the madness of its eccentric neighbour. Vibes of historical Chinese influence with waves of modern Japanese technology, this city stands out as a major Asian capital.   The city is…
