South Korea

                                                 The South of Korea

Climate

In South Korea there is temperate climate which means it has 4 different seasons. The climate is similar to the U.S.A's climate.

      Summer: Imagine cold sweat falling down your face while you are shopping for                 shoes. Summer in South Korea is hot and humid. The temperature goes up to about          25.7 degrees, which is not that hot of a weather for people who live in the South               America and Central America. Some shorts and a t-shirt would be perfect for                     summer in South Korea.

      Winter: Winters are long, cold and dry in South Korea. The average temperature for         winter is -5 and -2.5 degrees C. You should expect snow in December and specially         in January.

The best time to visit South Korea would be during autumn because it is simply perfect.

Tourist Attractions

Jejudo ( aka Jeju island)

Jejudo is one of the most well-known tourist attractions in South Korea. Basically it is an island very similar to Hawaii. It can also be known as the "Island Of the Gods". In Jejudo there are many different activities which you can enjoy while being there. Including: hiking on Halla-San( South Korea's highest mountain peak), catching sunrises and sunsets over the sea, viewing majestic waterfalls and lava tubes, Jeju Loveland, riding horses or just visiting the beach. Jejudo still remains as one of the top honeymoon destinations for South Korea.

Unfortunately Jejudo does not have a website yet.

Seoraksan National park

Its name might sound all weird to you but for koreans it does not. During autumn many people visit this national park specially for the beautiful colors of autumn that happen in the national park. The areas are divided into three parts. The inner part of the Taebaek Mountain Range is called the inner seorak. The other two major parts are called Outer Seorak and South Seorak.

Unfortunately this tourist attraction doesn't have a website.

Gyeongju

This is a small city north of Ulsan and Busan. This city is actually referred as a museum without walls. Why is this? Well, it is because of the numerous historical sites in here. In Gyeonju there is this one famous temple called the Bulguksa temple. In South Korea it is famous as the place that was once depicted on its paper money. This temple is considered as a Buddhist work of art.

There is no website for Gyeongju either.

Korean food

In Korea there is no specific typical foods that I know of, but there are many different kinds of foods that you might find weird. In Korea there are basically things called "side disehes". Basically it is what it sounds like. You eat these side dishes with rice. A simple Korean meal would be rice with soup and side dishes. It is pretty filling! If you would go to Korea you would see a lot of spicy food.

Kimchi


Kimchi is Korea's national dish. During South Korea's involvement in the Vietnam War its government requested American help to ensure that South Korean troops, reportedly "desperate" for the food, could obtain it in the field;[10] South Korean president Park Chung-hee told U.S. President Lyndon B. Johnson that kimchi was "vitally important to the morale of Korean troops" It was also sent to space on board Soyuz TMA-12 with Yi So-Yeon after a multi-million dollar research effort to kill the bacteria and lessen the odor without affecting taste.

It might not look that apetizing but Koreans really like it.
