South Korea hotels — where to stay
It is interesting to travel through South Korea both with friends and alone. It is a safe, quiet, and hospitable country with beautiful nature, mild climate and friendly people always willing to help tourists find their way in an unfamiliar place. There is a great choice of recreational opportunities here. In winter, you can visit the ski resorts High 1 Ski Resort and Yongpyong Resort Ski & Snowboard. In July and August, the southeast coast of the country turns into a populous seaside resort since many Koreans come here for a holiday. More favorable month for tourists is September when there are less local holidaymakers and you can still enjoy sun and swimming. Shopping is one of the most exciting activities in South Korea. Guinness World Records marked the shopping mall Shinsegae Centum City as the largest store in the world in 2009. South Korea will appeal to those who prefer a comfortable journey with elements of Eastern culture.
