South Korea

Cost of Living

Surrounded in the controversy of the war with its volatile and autocratically run northern neighbour, South Korea still manages to exist as a cultural, economic, and tourist beacon in the East. Separated from mainland China by North Korea, with whom they are still technically at war, this proud and vibrant country offers more than just a history lesson but rather a journey from past to present of an independent, proud, and friendly people.

The thickly forested national parks and quiet fishing villages evoke a serene, peaceful pace of life and the agrarian landscapes dotted with Buddhist temples conjures up a ‘good life’ unavailable in nearly all parts of the world. But moving alongside the Arcadian topology is a booming economic and industrial sector driving the country forwards. In Seoul, the sprawling capital city, you will find a bustling and energetic metropolis that borders on frantic. With numerous festivals, events, and parties, there is always something happening and after the initial and traditional distance you might find from the local people, they will be happy to join you in the celebrations.

With two lifestyles available in one, gorgeous, country it is easy to forget the rumbles coming from the North every now and again. And after a few weeks here you will understand why the troubles at the border play second fiddle to the plethora of experiences available at any given time.
