Description:   South Korea is primarily a mountainous country with glorious albeit a tad cold, beaches. When you think of Asia you normally associate it with beaches and islands and not with skiing but South Korea has some fairly good slopes. Korea is similar in many ways to its neighbours being that it has a cosmopolitan capital city and many cities but the countryside is the same as it has always been.
