POCKET GUIDE TO LUXURY HOLIDAYS TO SOUTH KOREA
An ultra-modern city metropolis of gleaming skyscrapers, sleek hotels and bustling crowds shroud an incredibly authentic culture in South Korea’s capital of Seoul. Seoul’s unwavering energy and awe-inspiring modernity is home to historic palaces, lush national parks and traditional South Korean food, sitting side by side the staggering city skyline. Marvel at the royal palaces and landmarks of the city’s ancient Buddhist past before sampling the city’s ever-growing and world-famous culinary scene.
Just off South Korea’s southern coast, Jeju Island is a volcanic island known for its beachfront resorts and picturesque coastline. An excellent stop on luxury family holidays to South Korea, Jeju Island is beautifully defined by its volcanic landscape, making for wonderful explorations of its natural beauty. Set out on hiking trails and visit the dormant volcano of Mount Halla or enjoy plenty of opportunities to relax at your luxury resort. Laze on the beach, lounge by the pool or spend the afternoon at a luxurious spa.
OROKO Top Tip
Here at OROKO, we love to combine luxury holidays to South Korea with the neon lights and ancient culture of Japan, experiencing the highlights of each of these fascinating countries, all in one go. Wonderful examples of the fact that modernism and traditionalism can live in harmony, explore the metropolis of Tokyo, Seoul and Sapporo, where hidden izakaya and ukiyo-e woodblock collectors live between the towering skyscrapers of the city, united with the sleepy hot spring resorts and lakeside towns of Hokkaido.
Packed with gorgeous beaches, rolling mountains and ancient temples, the port city of Busan is South Korea’s second largest city. While often known as simply the departure point for ferries headed for Jeju Island, Busan has plenty of its own worthy attractions. Visit landmarks like the Buddhist temple of Beomeosa, the famous seafood market of Jagalchi, where restaurants serve delicious hwe (Korean-style sashimi) or pay a visit to the observation tower of Yongdusan Park.
