Welcome to korea

Korea is a mountainous peninsula, which boasts breathtaking mountain scenery and a ruggedly scenic coastline. Seoul’s many attractions and excellent transport links make it the country's number one destination for foreign visitors and the logical place from which to embark on a tour of the country. The country also has several dozen national and provincial parks, renowned for their natural beauty and numerous temples.

Finally, The Republic of Korea also has considerable experience in hosting major international sporting events, notably the 1986 Asian Games, the 1988 Olympic Games in Seoul, the 2002 Asian Games and the 2002 FIFA World Cup, which it co-hosted together with Japan – the first time this major sporting event has taken place in an Asian country. Visitors will benefit from sports facilities of a generally high standard, particularly in Seoul and in the larger cities.


geography.

The Republic of Korea (South Korea) shares borders to the north with the demilitarised zone (separating it from the Democratic People’s Republic of Korea), to the east with the Sea of Japan (East Sea), to the south with the Korea Strait (separating it from Japan), and to the west with the Yellow Sea. There are many islands, bays and peninsulas in the Korea Strait. The volcanic island of Cheju-do lies off the southwest coast. Most of the country consists of hills and mountains and the 30 per cent of flat plain contains the majority of the population and cultivation. Most rivers rise in the mountains to the east, flowing west and south to the Yellow Sea. The Naktong River flows into the Korea Strait near the southern port of Busan. The eastern coast is rocky and steep with mountains rising from the sea.
