South Korea is one of the world’s most beautiful countries, but that’s just one of the reasons why people are dying to travel there. It’s also one of the safest countries you can visit, but there’s more to its charm than that.

So here it is – one of the top reasons why people travel to Korea is its infusion of food, culture, technology, and beauty – qualities that are much different than what we’re so used to seeing right here in North America

Check out South Korea and you’ll be ogling at its technological advancements, beauty industry, and culture. The cutting-edge country is home to some of the most revolutionary skin care treatments and customized medical services you’ll find in the world. Not only that, but it’s at the forefront of augmented reality and VR experiences.

But for all its innovation, Korea still has a strong sense of history. And this combination of history and progressive thinking is what a new tourism hub in Seoul is celebrating. Now you can learn about all this cool stuff at the innovative centre, K-Style Hub.

We’ve listed some of the reasons why South Korea makes for a great adventure – they’ll make you not only want to visit, but return, too.
