KOREA

 

Korea is a delightful for international travelers. Visitors can discover her rich natural beauty combined with a unique cultural and historical heritage. After a rapid modernization process in recent decades. Koreans still maintain their traditional values such as hospitality for strangers and the time-honored Confucian respect for the elderly.

Traveling in Korea is enjoyable all year round thanks to her distinct four seasons and the beautiful changes of nature. In spring(March to May), mountains and fields are in bloom with cherry blossoms, forsythias, azaleas, magnolias and lilacs. In summer(July to early September), luxuriant forests, bright green fields and the cobalt blue sea draw people outdoors. In autumn(September to November), cool temperatures and a clear sky make the most pleasant time of the year in Korea. The mountains all over the country are in red and yellow blazing autumn foliage.  In winter(December to February), slopes become the place for skiing and snow festivals. Winter in Korea is another delightful season of great amusement.

 

Most foreign visitors to Korea having a valid passport and confirmed outbound tickets may stay in Korea for up to 30 days without visas. Exceptions apply to persons who have no nationality or citizens from countries that do not have reciprocal visa exemption agreement with Korea.

 

Korea can be reached from virtually every capital city in the world, either via direct flight or by a connecting flight through major East Asian cities. Korea has seven international airports: Incheon, Gimpo, Yangyang, Cheongju, Daegu, Gimhae, and Jeju. Among them, Incheon International Airport is the largest.

 

Korea's monetary unit is the won, which is easily exchanged at banks or tourist hotels for US dollars, Japanese yen, the euro, pound sterling, and other foreign currencies. The rate of conversion is basically stable but subject to change by market fluctuations.
