Where is Korea?

The Korean peninsula, roughly 1,030 kilometers long

and 175 kilometers wide at its narrowest point, is located in Northeast Asia.

With Seoul as its capital city, Korea's total land area is 100,363 kilometers squared.

Korea's neighbors include Japan to the east, China to the west,

and Democratic People's Republic of Korea (North Korea) across the northern border.

Located in a temperate zone and blessed with four distinct seasons, Korea,
once known as the “Land of the Morning Calm”, is a country that boasts a rapidly growing economy that combines the old and the new. Being a fascinating country with 5,000 years of history, Korea blends harmoniously its rich heritage with new advances and modernizations.

Korea has a very long and proud cultural heritage. Like most cultures, Korea has its corpus of etiquette and taboos. Korea also has a number of major traditional holidays, each one with its own unique customs and traditions.Koreans are a very understanding people, but it still helps to learn a little about the host nation’s culture before setting off for a visit.

Korea has developed its own unique cuisines with both variety and taste. Kimchi is undoubtedly the best known food: it has been scientifically proven to be highly nutritious and many claim it as healthy and therapeutic food. Nowadays it is becoming a popular culinary item on dinner tables worldwide. Some of the most popular Korean dishes include "Bulgogi“, "Galbi", and of course “Bibimbab"

Hallyu, or Korean Wave, refers to the Korean pop culture phenomenon that is gaining great popularity around the world. It began with Korean dramas and movies gaining popularity in Asia, but in recent years, Korean pop music (K-pop music) has become the world’s hottest music industry. If in Korea, be sure to visit sets and filming locations and also experience diverse aspects of the Korean pop culture.
