I want to visit South Korea to experience the South Korean culture, life, history, technology, food and all that Korea has to offer. South Korea is traditional, yet modern and I want to experience both these sides.
My first reason to visit South Korea is to see its many beautiful places. Some of these are Seoul, Busan, Daegu and Jeju Island. I have seen the videos of the Gangnam dance by Psy. I want to visit Seoul and feel the same environment. As Seoul is the capital of South Korea, I want to visit Seoul first. I want to visit the important historical places in Seoul like Gyeongbokgung Palace, Changdeokgung Palace, Bukchon Village and Jongmyo Shrine. Out of these my favourite is Gyeongbokgung Palace as it is the biggest and has traditional guard changing ceremony, which can give you a glimpse of the history. Seoul also has many modern tourist attractions like N Seoul Tower, Lotte World, Coex Aquarium and many shopping areas like Itaewon, Namdaemun Market, Meyong-dong etc. I want to leisurely walk along the Cheonggyecheon Stream. I want to see Dongdaemun Design Plaza for its unique architecture. It will be fun to move around in Seoul at any time as Korea is the safest country in the world.
Korea and India share very old relations. One Indian princess from Ayodhya went to South Korea long ago and married a Korean King. I want to experience Korean Culture and lifestyle by visiting Korea. I want to see and try out traditional Korean dresses and dishes. I want to taste the real Khimchi. Koreans promote their culture very well and there is an informative Seoul Global Cultural Center which showcases Korean culture. I want to go there. Koreans have some cultural similarities with Indians. They also believe in staying together and respecting their elders. I want to interact with Koreans in the shops, on the roads, in the cafes, to know more about their traditions. This will bring me closer to Korea.
As I am a student, I am interested in knowing more about the Korean way of teaching and learning. Korean education system is among the best in the world. I want to learn from them and make some Korean friends.
As Koreans are very advanced in technological products, I want to see their latest innovations. I want to visit places like Samsung D'light where I can see the new and unreleased Samsung products.
South Korea is a family tourist destination and I want the first one in my family to experience this.
