How Many Time Zones in South Korea

Information for Travelers

South Korea is an East Asian state in the southern half of the Korean Peninsula, whose border with North Korea is one of the most militarized borders in the world.

South Korea is known for its green and mountainous landscape with cherry trees and Buddhist temples, coastal fishing villages, subtropical islands and ultra-modern cities like the capital Seoul.

It's also a country of contrasts, with tourist attractions ranging from ancient mountaintop Buddhist temples like Bulguksa to ultra-modern Seoul skyscrapers like the Lotte World Tower.

Busan is the second largest city in the country and its coastline is lined with beautiful beaches and resorts.

Seafood lovers can't miss Jagalchi Market, the country's largest seafood market.

Jeonju is a very historic city, as the spiritual capital of the Joseon Dynasty, it is about 90 minutes by train from Seoul.

It is home to many ancient temples and shrines, as well as a hanok village.

Anyone visiting Seoul must climb the city's iconic observation tower.

Its position almost on top of a mountain, added to the height of the tower itself, takes you almost 500 meters above sea level and the city below.

The tower sits near the top of Mount Namsan, and the entire area is Namsan Park, which is administered by the city.

There are miles of trails to explore, all just minutes from downtown Seoul.

South Korea offers everything a traveler could want in a destination.


Culture

As a world capital, Seoul is full of museums. The biggest is the National Museum of Korea and, like the Met in New York, it's a place that really can't be explored in a single visit.

The vast collection combines art, history and archeology, presented to show the history of Korean culture and tell the story of the Korean people.

The country has a long and fascinating history, wonderful culture, incredible food, friendly people, and an excellent tourist infrastructure that includes a new high-speed rail system.

Of the five grand palaces built by Joseon Dyantasy in the 15th century around Seoul, Changdeokgung Palace has always been the preferred royal residence.

It is where the king and royal family lived their daily lives.

South Korea also has one of the most unique attractions in the world that can be visited, a no man's land, part of a military border between two countries technically still at war.
