Somewhat unfairly, South Korea has come to be defined by the fractious relationship between it and its notorious northern neighbour. Look beyond this however and you’ll find a spectacular Asian destination to rival Japan or Thailand. Ancient temples, traditional customs and a history dating back to at least 700BC are juxtaposed with a vibrant, high-tech industry in full throttle. South Korea is now Asia’s third largest economy, and synonymous with cutting edge electronics.
Seoul, the country’s capital city, is a manic, 24-hour, non-stop metropolis where sights, sounds and smells dazzle the senses. The shopping here is fantastic – be sure to check out the boutiques, bars and restaurants of Apgujeong. There are numerous palaces to visit around the city, and the impressive Namdaemungate is in the process of being restored.
Outside of the cities, you’ll find a number of fantastic national parks to explore, with rugged mountain tops peeking out of dense forest. These offer excellent opportunities for hiking and cycling. Travel further still and you’ll come to secluded islands off the coast, where farmers and fishermen live in a way unchanged for centuries, and seafood cafes serve delicious meals.
Whatever your travel itinerary in South Korea, it is always wise to invest in travel insurance. In the cities especially there is the risk of theft and robbery, with tourists particularly likely to be targeted. Having to replace your passport, holiday money or travel documents while abroad can work out costly and be a massive headache. What’s more, paying for emergency medical treatment out of your own pocket could potentially cost you thousands of pounds.
Far better then to have a reliable safety net in place to protect you against such unfortunate situations. Insure & Away offer a great range of different policy types, from under 18s cover to family policies. We offer up to £5,000,000 emergency medical cover at basic level and £10,000,000 at premier level. So with us, you can travel with complete peace of mind. For more information, feel free to give us a call!
