South Korea tailor-made holidays

Korea is a mystery to many travellers, and even those who do visit often venture no further than the pulsating modern capital, Seoul.

They may shop for arts and antiques in Insadong and perhaps take in one of the city's old palaces.

But allow yourself a little more time and there are a good range of attractions to be discovered further afield - from the temples, tombs and weathered pagodas of the former Silla kingdom city of Gyeongju, to the scenic holiday island of Jeju, a volcanic gem in the Korea Strait where haenyo (literally ‘sea women') dive for shellfish.
