Foodies: South Korea, for many, is all about a buzzing K-Pop scene and forward-thinking fashion, but what some might not know is that it is home to some of the most delicious street food in the world. In Seoul, you’ll find something tasty waiting around every corner. From Tteokbokki, a tangy, spicy rice cake often bought by hungry students as a post-school snack for the walk home. To Gyeranppang, a sweet eggy bread made from a pancake-like mix with a salty baked whole egg in its centre. If you head to the coastal city of Busan, known for its beautiful beaches (and that one, rather famous zombie movie involving a train?), you’ll find some delicious seafood delicacies. Sample grilled clams, shrimp gimbap, and, even ‘live’ squid– washed down with a bottle of soju.
History Buffs: With one of the world’s oldest known modern civilisations, it should come as no surprise that China’s capital is a haven for history buffs. Whether you’re discovering the secrets of the Forbidden City with a historian, exploring the Confucious Temple with a former monk, or delving deep into the hutong neighbourhoods with a Beijing local, this city is by far one of the most interesting places you’ll ever visit.
