South Korea is my favourite destination for various reasons. First is the close relations between India and South Korea. Starting from the marriage of Indian princess to Korean king almost 2000 years ago to Comprehensive Economic Partnership Agreement and Seoul Peace Prize to Indian Prime Minister, both the countries have come very close. Citizens of both the countries admire and respect each other. I know that when I visit South Korea I will feel the warmth of the Koreans.
Second reason is that South Korea is a very beautiful tourist destination. It has lots of historical places, beautiful natural sights, cultural experiences, interesting cuisine and entertainment parks. Koreans have preserved and presented their historical monuments in a very efficient way. Whether it be the guard changing ceremony at the “Gyeongbokgung Palace” or the high-technology “The Story of King Sejong Exhibition Hall”, I am sure to be attracted. Walking up the Namsan mountain to reach the N Seoul Tower is a wonderful experience. Getting photographed while wearing a Hanbok – the traditional Korean dress makes for a lifetime memory. Korean cuisine offers a lot of variety and is very tasty and healthy. I want to taste Bibimbap, the famous Korean mixed rice dish. Lotte World Adventure and Everland offer the best of rides and thrilling experiences.
Third reason is that South Korea is the home of K-Pop and K-Drama. K-pop stars like BTS are international icons. K-drama stories are also liked the world over for their interesting content and presentation. I would love to visit places like SM Town, Gangnam area and Petite France in Gyeonggi-do.
Fourth reason is that South Korea is a very technologically advanced country. I would love to go there and see the latest gadgets. Samsung D’light is such a place where I can see how technology will affect our lives in the future. I would also like to visit some universities and factories.
Fifth reason is that South Korea is a shoppers’ paradise. It has amazing garments, cosmetics, fashion accessories and electronic products. There are many big shopping malls and duty-free super stores, apart from the traditional shopping areas in Seoul like Namdaemun, Myeongdong, Dongdaemun and Itaewon.
I would love to go to South Korea.
