Top things to do and places where to go in South Korea

A few of the gems of South Korea

South Korea is a very capitalistic country where cities and concrete buildings are the queens and kings who rule the place. It is therefore an easy place to travel in terms of accomodation and tourism, but as soon as you want to try to find the real Gems of the country and go out of the touristic path, it gets a little bit harder. But if you like to walk (a lot) and you’re not scared of a bit of adventure, your efforts will be rewarded.

And the most important while traveling to South Korea is to not judge it by its look and appearances… What is hidden behind the surface is truly beautiful. Check my article about Silsangsa school right here if you don’t believe me.

 

La Corée du Sud est un pays extrêmement capitaliste où les villes et les immeubles en ciment sont devenus les reines et rois qui gouvernent les paysages. Il est donc très facile d’y voyager en termes de tourisme et de logement mais si vous êtes à la recherche de frissons et de beaux paysages, ça se complique grandement. Mais si vous n’avez pas peur de marcher (beaucoup) ou de vous lancer à l’aventure, vos efforts seront finalement récompensés.

Le plus important lors d’un voyage en Corée du Sud serait de ne pas juger ce pays par son apparence et son look… Ce qui est caché sous la surface est extrêmement magnifique, il est tout à fait possible de vivre des aventures extraordinaires dans cette belle contrée. Et si vous ne me croyez pas encore, jetez un oeil à mon article sur l’école Silsangsa Jakeun ici.
