South Korea is a country full of amazing natural reserves, technological advancement beyond belief and an attractive traditional culture unlike any other countries I have experienced. Even though, South Korea is not exactly a big country, there are quite a bit of national parks you can explore, some within the proximity of Seoul. Seoul is the kind of city that blends modern and traditional cultures together perfectly. Walking around the city is like walking through a melting pot of hundreds of years of tradition surrounded by the future.The people of South Korea may seems indifferent at first (like in all big cities) but the more you get to know them, the more you will see how nice they are. South Korea has a very clear cut season and for most cases each offers a unique perspective of the country. The summer (June to August) can be hot and humid, Winter (December to February) can be extremely cold but less risk of rain, autumn (September - November) where the forests can turn reddish orange and the best time of all, spring (March - May) where flowers bloom and festivals are in full swing.
Seoul is a vibrant city that deserve your full attention, especially if you come during the family month (May) and you want to see the city's streets lit with lanterns and people coming out and enjoy the buddha's birthday celebration. Once you are up and ready, take a metro to the Gyeongbokgung Palace and explore the heart of the Korean culture. If you are there during the Children's day, the entrace is free and there will be many performances for you to see. Another reason to go in May! There were plenty of sight to see in the palace. You can spend around half day just walking around, taking nice photos all the parks and temples in theis palace.Gyeongbokgung is one massive palace! Book the best hotels & resorts in Seoul.
