The South Korea guide 2018

Learning to dance to K-pop, eating kimchi pancakes washed down with makgeolli (rice wine), finding hidden cave temples in the mountains… The list of memorable moments in South Korea could go on and on.

This is, after all, a country rich in unforgettable experiences. In this guide, we’ve narrowed it down to our top 10 — from exploring palaces and temples to kicking back on the beach and skiing on the slopes that hosted the most recent Winter Olympics.

You’ll soon know your hanok from your hanbok, the dos and don’ts of the DMZ, and where to find the best bulgogi (barbecue) — courtesy of two top chefs. As for the secret to K-pop dancing — I’ll share some advice from my instructor at Seoul’s Real K-pop Dance Studio: “More cute!”

I’m not sure I quite mastered it, but it certainly left me smiling. As did the rice wine.
