South Korea is a sovereign state in East Asia that came into being after World War II. Also known as the “Land of the Morning Calm”, it is a land of opposites, combining ancient Oriental tradition with modern technology. If you dive into its capital, Seoul, tranquility is the last thing you will feel – this multifaceted city is constantly on the move, creating a beautiful contrast with the country’s proud promotion of age-old traditions and culture. South Korea has a strong transport infrastructure, and offers tourists a dazzling range of experiences, beautiful landscapes and very rich history.

Why Health Tourism in South Korea?
Korea’s star as a health travel destination has risen rapidly over the past two decades. Boasting plenty of modern international hospitals that offer a wide range of specialties and procedures, notably spinal disorders and cancer, the country is also one of the world’s most technologically and scientifically advanced countries. Medical travelers who don’t react well to the heat and humidity of India or Southeast Asia will like Korea’s northern mountainous climate, and will find treatments that rivals those offered in developed countries, at a significantly lower price. South Korea has highly trained and experienced doctors, very friendly hospital staff, and provides a hospitable environment for international patients.
