AdelmanSummit explores the captivating countryside of South Korea

In October of 2019, the AdelmanSummit team shared their experiences with the dynamic, bustling city of Seoul, South Korea, a major gateway city to Asia and considered to be a top global meeting and event destination. This month we move outside of the vibrant capital city to feature some of the wonderful regional destinations around South Korea, which are easily accessible and provide additional opportunities to experience this unique culture and country.

Located on the southeastern coast of the country is Busan, the “Southern California of South Korea.” Busan boasts year-round temperate weather, friendly people, and a little touch of city blended with the countryside. Busan offers a wide variety of hotels including Park Hyatt, Lotte, and Hilton Busan. Must-experience attractions include Haeundae Beach, the famous Taejongdae cliffside observatory, and the largest seafood street market in South Korea.

Jeju Island, the “Hawaii of South Korea” is located off the southern shores of the country. This paradise is known for its rich history dating back to the Korean War. Venture to the shield volcano, Halasan, the steepest mountain in the country and make sure to experience Mangjanggul, a famous cave created by lava flow tubes. Visitors can hike, kayak, explore or simply relax on the Jeju’s beaches. There are a variety of accommodations that are steeped in history or offer beach-style charm and will suit a variety of meeting or event needs. Great choices for hotels include Jeju Shinhwa World Marriott Resort and the Maison GLAD Jeju.

There are Olympic sites that travelers can visit, along with intriguing cultural sites in the area.   Visitors will also want to take in Odaesan National Park, with its trails crisscrossing the Taebaek Mountains.
