Korean Adventure

Two of my friends just got home from a 3-week Korean trek that took them across the whole span of the country (though, for the most part, only passing through Seoul). They were both very impressed with the country, especially enjoying some mountain climbing and nature treks of the sort that we don't get to do much here in Singapore.

One of my friends commented that Koreans really seem to have it good at home, and that they don't feel as big a need to travel outside of the country as a lot of other nationalities in the region might. My friend felt this comes from having a beautiful country of their own to explore, along with a high standard of living that allows them to travel in some comfort.

I've only been to the part of Korea that my friends missed, Seoul, but it sounds like the country would really be worth the visit. It's a spot I've had on my "to see" list for some time, and I think hearing about my friends' adventures has moved it up a notch or two in terms of priority.
