Age-Old Mystique Meets Pop Culture

With 5,000 years of history and the recent waves of K-pop that permeate the globe, Korean culture features a blend of age-old traditions and modernity. Seoul, the capital city, is a multi-faceted metropolis where meticulously reconstructed palaces and shrines coexist with bustling lifestyle malls and night markets.

Featured Attractions

Jeju Island

A popular honeymoon destination, Jeju charms with its mild weather, beautiful beaches, lush countryside, quaint villages, and jagged coasts. The island's most distinctive landmark, Hallasan, is an extinct volcano surrounded by a National Park, offering breathtaking views of the coast from the country’s highest point at 1,950 metres. Other noteworthy sights include UNESCO World Natural Heritage sites, Ilchulbong Peak (also known as the Sunrise Peak), and Manjanggul Cave—the world’s longest lava tunnel.

During spring, blossoming yellow canola flowers against the deep blue ocean are a sight to behold. The lovely weather makes hiking an ideal way to explore this amazing island.

With seven hotels across the island, there's always a Ramada by Wyndham hotel to cater to your needs.

All-Night Shopping at Dongdaemun

Seoul has plenty of shopping districts, but Dongdaemun is a must-visit. There are at least 30,000 shops spread across seven multi-story malls that offer round-the-clock shopping. Also, be sure to explore the yellow-tented street stalls that start at night and stay open till dawn. Designed by world-renowned architect Zaha Hadid, Dongdaemun Design Plaza is shaped like a swirling spiral, signifying the dynamics of Dongdaemun Fashion Town.

Located a few kilometers away from Dongdaemun Design Plaza, Ramada Encore by Wyndham Seoul Dongdaemun is the perfect place to stay in this stylish neighborhood.

Haedong Yonggung Temple

Built in 1376, Haedong Yonggung Temple sits along the shoreline of northeast Busan. This is an absolute must-see for its rich history, stunning views, and impressive architecture. View beautiful stone lanterns lining the rocky landscape and walk the 108 steps, which represent Buddhist sufferings. Go early in the morning and you will be rewarded with the calming sounds of the waves and a majestic view of sunrise.

April is an especially beautiful time of the year to visit, with cherry blossoms in full bloom. Celebration of the birth of Buddha also offers a spectacular night view, as the temple area is aglow with lit lanterns.

Ramada Encore by Wyndham Haeudae is less than an hour away.

Gyeongbokgung Palace

The largest of five Grand Palaces and the official residence of the Kings of Joseon Dynasty, Gyeongbokgung Palace is located in the heart of Seoul, surrounded by Mount Bugaksan and Mount Namsan. Its name means "Palace greatly blessed by the Heavens." Catch the 20-minute Royal Guard Changing ceremony that takes place twice a day before traveling back in time with a tour around the interior of the palace.
