The Changdeok palace, the place has the beauty of perfect harmony which expresses that human being assimilates nature while nature assimilates human being, so the palace just reflexts our nature-friendly characteristic that shows man is not a being which dominates nature but harmonizes with nature.

To finish the wonderful day in Seoul, we recommend you visiting the N Seoul tower, a landmark of the metropolitan city of Seoul is to be introduced with its new name and look to provide more fun and excitement. Many citizens and foreign tourists have visited the Tower and were taken by the scenic view of the city while also enjoying the nature of Namsan mountain.

You will have an unforgettable experience at N Seoul Tower, the best place to view the city, with its convenient facilities and beautiful surroundings.After that you can go to the Cheonggyecheon Stream. This 5.84km-long stream runs through downtown Seoul. Originally a natural stream, it was filled and covered with asphalt in 1958 to make a road, but following major restoration works that began in July of 2003 and lasting for two years and three months, it has now become a refreshing stream that helps keep downtown Seoul cool. Visitors can walk along the stream and enjoy the numerous nearby attraction, or simply admire the tricking stream from any of the 22 bridges that cross Cheonggyecheon.
The division of Korea into South and North
The Korean Demilitarized Zone that separates the two Koreas remains heavily guarded.The North Korean population is far more culturally distinct and isolated than the East German population was in the late 1980s. Unlike in East Germany, North Koreans generally cannot receive foreign broadcasting or read foreign publications. In addition, the time period in which the two countries have been divided is longer; Germany was divided for 44 years, whereas the Koreas have been divided for over 60, and have been technically at war for most of that period.
Jeju Island, also known as the "Island of the Gods," is a popular vacation spot for Koreans and many foreign tourists. It remains one of the top honeymoon destinations for Korean newlyweds. The island's mixture of volcanic rock, frequent rains, and temperate climate, make it very similar to the Hawaiian Islands in the U.S. The island offers visitors a wide range of activities: hiking on Halla-san (South Korea's highest peak), catching sunrises and sunsets over the ocean, viewing majestic waterfalls, riding horses, or just lying around on the sandy beaches.
