Map of Korea


Seoul is both Korea's capital and largest city with a population of around 10 million.  It has all the features of a world-class city, and is home to the Han River and districts such as Gangnam, Itaewon, Songpa, Hongdae and Jamsil.  While it is one of the most modern cities in the world, it also is home to numerous historical sites that are worth visiting during your time in Korea.


Busan is a port city located in the southeastern part of Korea about a 2.5 hour train ride away from Seoul. It is Korea's second largest city with a population of around 3.5 million and it is famous for its beaches which makes it a popular travel destination in the summer.


Daegu, like Busan, is located southeastern part of Korea and is only a 40 minute train ride from Busan, which makes it convenient for weekend trips to the beach. It is Korea's third most populated city with around 2.5 million people, and while it has all the amenities of a major city, its surrounding mountains makes it a great place to partake in outdoor activities such as hiking.


Daejeon is located in the "heart" of Korea and is Korea's fifth most populated city with around 1.5 million people. It's central location makes it very convenient to travel throughout the country. Like most Korean cities, it is a great place for outdoor activities as it is surrounded by mountains and has the Gapcheon River running through the city. Daejeon is also considered the Silicon Valley of Korea as it is home to many tech and engineering companies.
