SOUTH KOREA, THE UNKNOWN CIVILIZATION
Back to the roots
The country was one of the poorest in the world at the end of the tragic war of 1953, yet South Korea has enjoyed an incredible expansion since then and now ranks as one of the major economic powers. Urban design is a striking illustration of its dynamism.
Yet behind modern Seoul lies another Korea, one which was once known as "the Land of the Calm Morning", where Buddhist temples awake to the light of lanterns and where tea plantations and rice fields ooze serenity.
Welcome to a lesser known Korea full of natural wonders and heir to a millennium old civilization.
