    The huge and well-known Chinese cosmetics and beauty consulting franchise company called Mimi Consulting Corporation and nearly 450 CEOs from its over 200 chain stores will visit Daegu Medical City in South Korea during January 2014 to hold their annual consulting conference. This conference has – so far – been always held in China, so the event will mean a lot to Korea’s medical travel industry.

    Many hope that the conference will furthermore fuel the economy and popularity of Daegu, as Mimi Consulting intends to direct Chinese patients who are particularly interested in cosmetic surgery to Daegu, which is especially famous for providing such medical services.

    Volcanoes might seem like lava spitting, smoke belching hell machines (and they really are that, if you happen to live at the base of an active volcano), but travelers with a sense of adventure will always want to see them in person, simply because volcanoes tend to be some of the most impressive natural sites on the planet. Whether you want to see a destructive force of nature from a safe distance, or to see the extinct remains of a volcano that has most certainly terrorized a lot of people in the past, you should head to the Asian continent, home to some of the most impressive volcanoes on the planet. If you like visiting exciting natural sites, travel to see some of the most spectacular volcanoes in Asia.

    Although grounded in ancient traditions and Confucianism, South Korea is one of the most modern and liberated countries in Asia, where every day is an adventure for a traveler. Visit a big city in South Korea, and you can barely keep up with the fast rhythm of daily life, but head to the countryside or a small town, and you’ll be lulled into a gentle pace and appreciation for life’s smaller pleasures. Cities like Seoul, Busan and Incheon are the kind of places where you can find something interesting to see or do any hour of the day, but South Korea’s sights are not restricted to urban sprawls, and you can find them in the most surprising places. Here are 5 spectacular attractions in South Korea, but you can rest assured that these are only a taster!

     
  • Travel destinations with remarkable cuisine

    You’d have to have a pretty conservative and obstinate stomach in order to be able to travel without indulging in the offer of local dishes and delicacies. Food and food preparation is a huge part of most cultures, and sticking only to dishes that are ‘international’ or familiar to the palate would mean that you are missing out on an essential part of the travel experiences. And while most travelers are happy to enjoy the local fare as a bonus to seeing amazing new places, there are more than enough travel destinations that are worth visiting based on their cuisine alone. And if you’re worried that you won’t have much to do except to stuff yourself in these destinations, don’t worry, they all have more than their fare share of sights as well. Here are a few travel destinations with remarkable cuisine that is reason enough to visit them.

    We all know about the seven wonders of the ancient world, and surely many travelers have seen the ones that remain. And as impressive as these monuments of Antiquity are, there are many more wonders natural and artificial on the planet that are just as mind-blowing. So it makes sense that various lists of new wonders have been put together, and some focus on wonders that are not man-made. Jeju Island in South Korea made the list of the New7Wonders of Nature just last year, so it seems like 2012 will bring a new wave of tourists to this amazing place! So hop on the bandwagon and travel to one of the New 7 Wonders of Nature: Jeju Island, South Korea.

    North Korea is probably one of the most impossible travel destinations in the world, and it’s rather ironic that its former better half, South Korea, is the exact opposite: one of the most welcoming and fascinating travel destinations in East Asia. South Korea is a country that is in full blown development, without completely forsaking its ancient Confucian roots. Korean music, food, films and products are taking the world by storm, and made this country a hugely popular travel destination for every kind of budget. Visiting all the best parts of the country in the course of a single trip is an unthinkable task, but we have compiled a list of the best travel destinations in South Korea to give you a taster of what is awaiting you there.

    In ages past, when castles were being built by the hundreds, little towns would often spring up around them, leaching off the wealth and protection of the castle’s lords and ladies. And while castle towns are a fixture in most European countrie, they are not limited to the Old World. Pretty towns with large castles looming over them can be found all over the world, and if the castle is interesting, then the community built around it is no less intriguing. If you feel like taking a step back in time to the glorious days of Medieval Europe or Asia, and even North America (without getting acquainted with any of the horrors of the Middle Ages), then take a trip to some of the best castle towns in the world.
