Typical dish

Bibimbap is a very popular dish in eKorea.
The dish consists mainly of rice, vegetables, beef or tofu, egg, and chili paste.
The name can roughly be translated into "mix rice". It is served unmixed and then stirred with chopsticks after serving. Many regions have their own Bibimbap, which is not very different from the normal dish.

Tourist or iconic places


Once the capital of the ancient kingdom of Silla, Gyeongju is a coastal city in South Korea with a rich selection of cultural and historical attractions. Its Silla heritage stretches back over 1000 years, with ancient sites, relics and ruins found throughout the city.

Jeje Island

Although it lies only 85km off the coast of South Korea, Jeju Island (more specifically Jeju-do) has developed its unique history, traditional dress, architecture, and linguistic traditions. With a moderate climate that differs surprisingly from the mainland, Jeju-do has a sub-tropical southern side and a more temperate northern region.


Suwon is the largest metropolis of Gyeonggi-do, the province which surrounds Seoul. The Hwaseong Fortress was built in 1794 by the Joseon dynasty ruler King Jeongjo with the aim to move the capital from Seoul to Suwon. However, before this could happen King Jeongjo died and power stayed in Seoul. But the fortress encircling the original part of Suwon remains today, stretching for nearly 6 km and includes four gates, bastions, artillery towers and observations decks.
