    15 Photos That Will Convince You to Travel to South Korea

    Let me be very clear – South Korea was not on my travel radar at all. I only went because I got an email notification from Scott Keyes that I could get a round trip ticket there for less than $500. I booked my flight and less than 2 weeks later I was on a plane headed to Asia.

    Once I arrived I realized what an amazing decision I had made.

    The Palaces are amazing and there are 5 in Seoul alone to see.

    Behind the main Palace is the gorgeous Pavillion which is the epitome of relaxation.
