At this time when Japan is still closed to international tourism, there are many of us who have decided to start planning a trip to South Korea. And we know that many others of you want to combine both countries, when tourism finally recovers.
Many decide to travel to South Korea because it is the mecca of K-Pop. Or maybe for getting to know some K-dorama locations, those South Korean TV series you can find on streaming platforms like Netflix.
Or to do just South Korea, of course. Because when you start researching, you soon realize that there is so much to see, do and enjoy in South Korea… how we are looking forward to our first trip there!
Obviously this depends a lot on the budget we have, the amount of vacation days we have available and also if you want to combine South Korea with another destination (such as Japan, for example).
As it already happens with Japan, when you start researching what to see in South Korea, you quickly realize that even 15 days are not enough to start discovering all the secrets that the country hides.
