To celebrate the completion of its new website, the Korea Tourism Organization has come up with a list of heralded travel destinations exclusively for visitors
Due in large part to Korea's beautiful, rolling mountains, surrounding oceans and myriad cultural & historical sites, the flow of tourists to the country is steadily growing. If you do not want to miss out on any must-see places or must-do activities, be sure to include Korea's top 10 tourist destinations in your itinerary.
No.1 Traditional Market Tour (Namdaemun Market, Dongdaemun Market, Myeong-dong and Insa-dong)
As a time-honored traditional haven, Namdaemun Market makes for an ideal place to soak in the shopping scene with its unlimited street-vendors, and myriad restaurants. If it's the latest fashion trends you're after, Dongdaemun Market never sleeps, greeting shoppers from 10am to as late as 5am the following morning. The area is bustling with energetic Koreans even at dawn. Myeong-dong, which was rated the number-one destination visited by foreign tourists, is crowded with people all year round.
