South Korea travel guide

The Republic Of Korea (South Korea) is a small country located on the far eastern side of Asia

Having been in the cultural sphere of China for much of its history, substantial Chinese influences are evident in traditional Korean culture. However, many fundamental differences still remain and South Korea has managed to keep a distinct cultural identity from other countries.

Traveling in South Korea

South Korea is not a big country so you can get anywhere quickly if you fly, and reasonably fast even if you don't. Subways are popular in most of the cities including Seoul. Larger cities already have or are developing subways. You can also use other means of transport like buses and taxis, though bus service is more economical.

Things to see in South Korea

South Korea has traditionally been influenced by Buddhism and Confucianism, which are both highly visible in many paintings, sculptures, ceramic and also in the performing arts.

Due to South Korea's history, construction and destruction has been repeated endlessly, resulting in an interesting eclectic mix of architectural styles and designs. Since the 1988 Seoul Olympics, South Korea has witnessed a wide variation of styles in architectural landscape due. Contemporary architectural efforts have been constantly trying to balance the traditional philosophy of "harmony with nature" and the fast-paced urbanization that the country has been going through in recent years.

    Beetle ferry
    • The company was very quick to reply to reservation requests and efficient when required times were unavailable. We travelled during national holidays in Japan and S Korea and the check in and journey were without problems. There is a good duty free store at Fukuoka but few facilities on board the ferry. Taxes need to be paid on departure and some of these have to be in Japanese yen.

    Great and fast way to come from Japan to Korea
    • If you prefer to use well your time this is a great way to go from Japan to Korea. The journey takes 3 hours and they have wi-fi onboard. It take less time to check-in and check-out than on a airport and the both Ports are in great cities right on their heart instead of travelling outside to an airport.

    Nothing to complain about
    • The ferry trip from Fukuoka to Busan went nice and smooth. The check in was very easy and simple. The trip itself was pleasant. They do not ave a shop onboard so buy some food in advance. I think the crew walked around selling a small selection of candy and drinks. The ferry was nice and clean and the seats very comfortable. I had a great experience. And I had no issues with the ticket I purchased in advance on this website. I simply just printed the email out and showed the lady at the check in counter.
