The small but beautiful nation, where the balance of life is reflected in the Yin and Yang of their flag; where shipbuilding is a major earner and Kimchi a proud invention; where Kpop has taken the world by storm. Any guesses?? Yes, that's right. South Korea, the nation in question has emerged victorious from the ravages of its Japanese conquerors and is a leading front runner in all spheres of the world as evinced today.

It is one of the biggest economies of the world with Samsung and LG making their mark in the electronic industry with millions of customers worldwide. Korean cosmetics too are known for their quality and are widely bought. With its cherry blossoms, autumn colors and polite, reserved people, and the 12 Unesco World Heritage Sites, this country awaits your visit in all her splendor. So don't think twice, pack your bags and head out for the time of your lives at this earthly haven, fondly referred to as 'The Land of the Morning Calm'.
