It’s no coincidence that Psy was named tourism ambassador of South Korea in 2013. Love him or loathe him, the sunglasses-sporting rapper has become a symbol of the west’s fascination with Korean pop music, film and television. But North Americans who’ve long known names like Samsung and LG are now hungry for Korean culture beyond what makes it to the West, and many are going right to the source!

In between two tourist juggernauts, Korea has long been one of Asia’s best kept travel secrets, where cutting edge technology rises out of a dynamic history spanning 5000 years.

Seoul is a capital pulsing with 24-hour shopping and historic sights including Chandeokgung Palace and Jongmyo Shrine. Dining out here is also serious business, making Seoul one of the best cities to partake in some of Asia’s most delicious – and noisy – cuisine. A trek out to the Demilitarized Zone has become a rite of passage for any traveller fascinated by the political intrigues of this divided peninsula. Some visitors prefer to see the traditional way of life that lives on in folk villages throughout Korea. The country also boasts 10 UNESCO World Heritage sites, including the 8th century BulguksaTemple and Seokguram Grotto.

A visit to Korea is one packed with enough culture, history and beauty to push any thoughts of Gangnam Style far from mind – at least until returning to Seoul!
