Abstract:

With 5,000 years of history and culture packed into one very tight package, Korea is a fascinating travel destination that both compares and contrasts favorably with its larger neighbors. From the pulsating streets of Seoul to the peaceful temples and gardens of the Korean countryside, Korea is a study in contrasts -- one foot in the future, with the other firmly rooted in one of the world's richest cultural heritages. In addition to beautiful photos that bring alive Korea's scenic charms, this guide features travel trips (including detailed maps, transportation information and "Off the Beaten Track" destinations for the adventurous traveler) and comprehensive and detailed descriptions of the culture and history of one of Asia's most fascinating countries. -- Publisher description.
