Welcome To Korea
Incheon International Airport (RKSI) is the first stop for many visitors to the Korean peninsula. South Korea’s capital city, Seoul, is just minutes away, and Incheon makes an ideal starting point for any South Korean adventure. Major cities in South Korea are connected by high-speed rail. Once you arrive in Incheon, you can easily traverse the entire country via South Korea’s modern, efficient public transportation system.
While in South Korea, be sure to spend some time in Seoul. This thriving metropolis is home to ancient Buddhist temples, gleaming skyscrapers, traditional cultural markets, and 21st-century infrastructure, all coexisting peacefully, often on the same streets.
History in the City
Start your visit to Seoul with a stop at Jogyesa Temple. Initially constructed in the 1300s, this temple has since been renovated and expanded over the centuries. Today, it is a magnificent complex with lush gardens, serene prayer halls, and traditional Buddhist ceremonies, many of which are open to the public.
Next, visit the bustling Gangnam District, one of the world’s busiest commercial and cultural enclaves. There you’ll find the Bongeunsa Temple, an oasis of serenity and calm amidst all the hustle and bustle of the city. Step into the past for an afternoon of meditation at the temple, then step back into the 21st century for a taste of Seoul’s vibrant nightlife and world-renowned cuisine.
Cap off your visit to Seoul with a stroll through the grounds of Changdeokgung Palace. Once a private retreat for the ruling families of the Joseon Dynasty, it is now a stunning cultural museum. Explore the palace’s ancient buildings and beautiful gardens to experience a taste of royal life for yourself.
Relax on the Coast
For a different experience in South Korea, consider a trip to the resort city of Busan. You can travel there from Incheon by high-speed rail or fly directly to Busan’s Gimhae International Airport (RKPK). The second-largest airport in South Korea. Situated on the southern coast of the Korean peninsula. Busan has several beautiful beaches, including Haeundae Beach, Gwangalli Beach, and Songdo Beach.
While Busan is now home to ultra-modern hotels and resorts, the city’s natural beauty and ancient architecture remain intact. Before leaving Busan, visit the Geumjeongsan Mountain National Park in the northern part of the city to enjoy a scenic hike or visit the centuries-old Beomeosa Temple.
