Soothe Your Soul
Step into a truly local way of life when you explore South Korea’s natural gems. From healing hot springs that bubble from deep underground to towering mountain peaks, these spaces will inspire you.
Spa Culture in Seoul
Kiln-heated saunas, ice-cold rooms, pools of mineral-rich waters and intense body scrubs create the holistic experience that defines a Korean jjimjilbang. These traditional bathhouses can be found throughout the country and are often fed by natural underwater hot springs. In Seoul, Bongil Spa Land is renowned for its alkaline waters while Woori Yuhwang Spa brings the purifying elements of sulfur-infused waters.
Journey to Jeju Island
A teardrop of land just off South Korea’s southern coast, Jeju Island has long been a draw for those in search of an island escape. Its volcanic landscape, dormant volcano and otherworldly lava tubes are treasured UNESCO World Heritage sites, while the coast is ringed with light-colored sands. Nature is everywhere, and an easy walk will reward you spectacularly with views of the tumbling Cheonjeyeon Waterfall.
Bounty in Busan
Busan is a popular cruise ship stop, but every style of traveler can uncover places of beauty in this busy port. On the southern end of Haeundae Beach is Dongbaek Island coastal walk, connected to the mainland by a land bridge. Stroll the boardwalk at your own pace past pine trees and up the rocky coastline for sweeping views of the water and surrounding skyline. The rocky terrain of Busan also appeals to hikers who come to climb the moderate trails of Jangsan Mountain.
