Among many East Asian countries, South Korea proves to be one of the most exciting tourist destinations there is. 92 percent of the South Koreans are highly urbanized, each contributing to the sustainable total GDP that is worth $1.929 trillion as of 2016.

It is one of the most high-tech nations in the world and a competitive manufacturer of gadgets and automobiles. Proud and vibrant, South Korea continues to fascinate travelers worldwide.

There are a number of reasons why many would choose to visit Seoul. These are the following tourist lures worth noting:

Urban Bliss

One of the most obvious reasons why travelers would visit Seoul is because it has a lively urban atmosphere. Every district in Seoul has something for all types of shoppers. Most importantly, this city is also an exciting nightlife hub.

Outrageous Cuisine

Another reason to visit Seoul has a lot to do with its food. The Noryangjin Fish Market is an excellent place to buy seafood. Speaking of seafood, many local restaurants in Seoul also serve Korea's most outrageous delicacies. Examples include (but not limited to) live octopus and spoon worms.

Cat Cafe

Are you a cat lover? If you are, then don't miss Seoul's Cat Cafe. This tourist attraction is all about the bewitching cuteness of these four-legged babies.

Anyone who is sick and tired of living in the concrete jungle craves to be off the grid. Choosing to visit Jeju Island is the best decision there is:

Green & Bright

There is a reason why Jeju Island was chosen as one of the New 7 Wonders of Nature in 2011. This island is an ecological haven on steroids--nearly competing with reputable virgin biomes of New Zealand, Greenland, and Mongolia. Its verdant topography is unquestionably 'screensaver-worthy.'

Hiker's Paradise

The highest peak in South Korea is found in Jeju Island. Mt. Hallasan is inscribed as a UNESCO bioreserve and home to South Korea's unique fauna. In fact, the entire Jeju Province itself is a collection of gently rolling hills and valleys.   

Teddy Bear Museum

If you are a fan of cute teddy bears, a unique museum in Jeju Island caters to that particular mania. The Teddy Bear Museum recreates history by comically featuring teddy bears as the subject of iconic works of art.
