Publisher Comments:

Insight Guide South Korea is an indispensable travel guide to a land of haunting natural beauty and rich cultural heritage, full of stunning travel photography. Be inspired by our Best of South Korea section highlighting unmissable sights and experiences and lavish Photo Features on festivals, street food, hiking and national parks, and mountain temples.

With a longer and more in-depth history and culture section than its competitors, this travel guide provides an essential introduction to South Koreas early kingdoms and dynasties, its recovery from the devastation of the Korean War, and contemporary politics and business culture. The informative text, written by regional experts, is a pleasure to read.

A detailed Places section, with full-color maps, guides you around the regions that make up this beautiful yet off-the-beaten-track country, from the megalopolis of Seoul to the forested mountains of Seoraksan, and the Ten Thousand Islands off the southwest coast.

A comprehensive Travel Tips section gives you all the travel advice you need to plan your trip. The selective listings for hotels and restaurants are the personal recommendations of a regional specialist.
