Bright lights and a vibrant city life is one of the top reasons to visit South Korea. But there’s more to this Asian country than neon-laden cities and urban jungles. South Korea has a history that spans hundreds of years and much of its culture is still well-preserved, thanks to the unsuccessful colonization of the Europeans.
But despite this, South Korea remains to be at the forefront of technology and entertainment, as K-pop music and fashion is slowly making its way into the mainstream media (some of which are already dominating the US Billboard Charts).
So, pack your Delsey luggage, get your passport ready, and get ready to enjoy the top reasons to visit South Korea!

Korean cuisines are both healthy and delectable, catering to both vegetarians and meat lovers alike. It is no wonder Koreans have great, supple skin.
