DISCOVER SOUTH KOREA

Where healthcare meets efficiency

South Korea is an East Asian nation that is located in the southern half of the Korean Peninsula. The population of South Korea is approximately 50 million and it has been considered as a highly developed destination, with a market economy that is ranked as the 13th in the world based on nominal GDP. South Korea has a high-tech industrialized economy joining the trillion-dollar club of world economies, an amazing accomplishment by such a small destination. About 14.2 million international tourists visited South Korea during the last year which have made it 20th most visited tourism destination in the world. With rising tourist prospects for the next few years, especially from foreign destinations outside of Asia, it has plan to achieve record 20 million visitors by the end of 2017, demonstrating the government’s goals to bring more revenue to the destination. Its healthcare system is universal insurance, as the medical societies were merged into the National Health Insurance Corporation at the beginning of this century.
Korea is greatly influenced by the Chinese and Japanese cultures. This influence can be seen by Confucianism, which established many traditions in modern Korea today. These traditions include the ethical code of conduct in social life and showing respect to the elders and family. Koreans also believe in sincerity and loyalty and follow certain codes of conduct while meeting, eating, praying and even celebrating. At times when many other cultures would shake hands, Koreans bow. They bow as a sign of gratitude and respect to the person they are meeting.
The seas surrounding the Korean peninsula—the Yellow and East China seas, and the Sea of Japan—provide not only many types of seafood, like tuna, king crab and squid, but moisture for the fertile soil needed to grow rice and grains. For centuries, the Koreans have eaten the products of the land and sea. Korean food is almost impossible not to fall in love with. You can’t leave South Korea without trying Kimchi (chilly pickled cabbage), Kimchi Stew, Soft Tofu Stew, South Korean jjigae (mixed seafood stew), Saengseon Jjigae (fish stew), Dolsot Bibimbap (hotpot mixed rice) and the Jjinmandu (steamed mandu dumplings).
