Seoul is the heart and soul of South Korea. Serving as the country’s capital, this is where you will find all that rich history of dynasties etched into sites like the Gyeongbokgung Palace.

When you have had your fill of sightseeing and shopping, Seoul’s eclectic nightlife and slick dining scene is here to keep your senses indulged and you singing karaoke until the small hours.

Juju Island

The largest island in South Korea and also the lushest, Jeju Island is the nation's favourite escape. Shimmering blue seas, sprawling sands, and a glut of glorious outdoor activities makes Juju Island ever tempting especially for yacht charters looking to drop anchor and soak up South Korea's authentic summer vibes. Alongside sublime beach beauty, the seafood on Juju is a rare joy, especially when blended in local dishes like kimbap. After splashing and feasting, active adventurers may wish to hike up the onyx slopes of Sunrise Peak for those pristine views out across the island.


Perched on the South East Coast, Busan is a beauty and occupies prime real estate tucked between mountains and the sea. It’s the perfect destination for those looking to combine buzzing city exploration with coastal parks, evocative temples, and a thriving creative scene. The chic and slick shores of Haeundae Beach are certainly the place to kick back and soak up the atmosphere and the Gamcheon Culture Village is a charming quirky spot for perusing the colourful café scene and snapping postcard pretty pictures.
