Korea has been one of those countries in Asia that I’ve always wanted to visit for many reasons. If it weren’t for traveling to Japan this year, South-Korea would have probably been the next destination.
So in the hopes of inspiring others to one day visit South-Korea, I’ve highlighted some of the reasons I want to go.
The main thing that usually attracts me to visit a foreign country is their culture. I always enjoy exploring cultures that are different than the ones I’m used to. That’s why South-Korea looks like a wonderful place to visit. From what I’ve read showing respect to others is a big thing in South-Korea, which is something that I admire from Asian countries.
What’s also attractive about South-Korea is how innovation is king. Living in a country that constantly tries to do new things speaks for how creative they must be as a country.
#2 Korean Food
I’ve had Korean-BBQ twice here in Amsterdam and both times it was amazing. But I believe that if you want to try something in its best form you should go to the place where it’s from. And that’s why I would love to try everything the Korean cuisine has to offer in their own country!
I recommend that you checkout the following Instagram account which can serve as a food guide for South-Korea.

From all the countries in Asia, South-Korean is my favorite. Cities like Busan and Seoul are filled with awesome houses, buildings and temples that I hope to see one day.
And most importantly, visiting a building that allows me to see the entire city from a nice view is always a must-do to me. That’s why visiting the Seoul tower at night is definitely on my to-do list!
